EY has announced an alliance with Snowflake, a Data Cloud company, which aims to help businesses transform how they manage and share data assets.
The alliance combines Snowflake’s Data Cloud with EY US business insights to offer “innovative solutions” across industries, initially starting with financial services.
The firm said Snowflake’s Data Cloud can increase the utility of public cloud solutions through a “next-generation approach” to data modernization, with a single, integrated platform for data warehousing, data lakes, secure data sharing, application development, integrated data engineering and the ability to run advanced data analytics.
Snowflake and EY US will create industry-specific resources that leverage the power of the Data Cloud to improve service delivery, finance, risk management, compliance, operations and other corporate functions.
EY added that Snowflake’s technology combined with the capabilities offered by its US teams can help “accelerate how organizations thrive in the digital age”.
Faisal Alam, EY Americas Emerging Technology leader, said: “EY US is dedicated to helping organizations solve their toughest challenges and realize their greatest ambitions, by capitalizing on transformative opportunities as part of their tech-enabled journey.
“We are pleased to be working with Snowflake, who’s innovative Data Cloud is revolutionizing how organizations across all sectors manage data, analytics, risk and business processes.
