Snowflake Focuses On Developer Community For Growth

According to a recent report, the global data warehouse as a service market is predicted to grow from $1.4 billion in 2019 to $23.8 billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 29% driven by increased digitization that is resulting in the creation of structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data in huge amounts. Businesses realize the importance of leveraging this data to derive useful insights to make better decisions and are investing heavily in storing, managing, and analyzing big data. San Mateo-based Snowflake is a leading data warehouse solution provider that went public in September last year.
