Snowflake Summit 2023: Three Innovation Themes
Snowflake is holding its Summit 2023 event in Las Vegas this week where, not surprisingly, artificial intelligence is a hot topic. In his keynote speech Tuesday CEO Frank Slootman joked that there has been so much discussion about AI across the industry that “it’s almost like there’s only two letters left in the alphabet.”
“Generative AI, for the first time, is really going to democratize access to data. And that’s critical,” noted Benoit Dageville, Snowflake co-founder and president of product, during the keynote session.
But Snowflake is all about data. “We always say that in order to have an AI strategy, you have to have a data strategy,” Slootman said. “Our data strategy, no surprise, is the data cloud.”
Snowflake is unleashing a wave of new technologies and capabilities around the Snowflake platform this week, but the data cloud giant is emphasizing three overarching “innovation themes” at the Summit 2023 event:
*Snowflake as a single platform for a broad range of use cases around accessing and understanding data, data security and protection, advanced analytics, and Snowflake platform performance and cost optimization.
*Snowflake’s growing capabilities for distributing and monetizing datasets and data-intensive applications.
*Enabling data programmability without having to trade off data security, governance or privacy.
Here’s a look at the key goings on at the Snowflake Summit 2023 event.
