data.world Joins Snowflake Partner Connect

data.world, the cloud-native data catalog company, has expanded its partnership with Snowflake, the cloud data platform, that includes integration to Snowflake Partner Connect. “As enterprises continue to modernize their data architecture and build data-driven cultures, it is important for everyone—including IT, data scientists, data stewards, business analysts, and executives—to have real-time access to the data they need to make informed business decisions,” said Jon Loyens, chief product officer and co-founder of data.world. “Expanding our partnership with Snowflake makes it easier for customers to find, understand, access, and manage their data. They can then use that data to solve complex business problems and earn ROI from their data infrastructure investments in record time.”

The Partner Connect integration establishes a live connection between Snowflake’s cloud data platform and data.world’s cloud data catalog, providing organizations with a clean, governed view of their business data and metadata. Built on an enterprise knowledge graph and data virtualization platform, the data.world goes beyond traditional data management and governance to deliver powerful search and discovery capabilities along with self-service analytics and collaboration.

The integration also makes it easier for Snowflake users to find and access relevant datasets. They can mark assets as “Recommended” or “Certified” and get suggestions about other assets or queries that may be useful to their research. If a user finds a relevant Snowflake dataset they don’t have permission to view, they can simply request access, kicking off an auditable workflow that ensures access to data is handled appropriately. This agile process encourages active participation in documentation and discussion.”

The data.world integration is available now in the Snowflake administrator console.
