In an attempt to enable new product integrations across artificial intelligence (AI), low code/no code application development, data governance and others, Snowflake, a data cloud company has partnered with Microsoft. 

In addition to these, both companies will implement new programmes to enhance joint go-to-market strategies and improve field collaboration. They will bring out joint solutions directly to the customers. 

As part of this partnership, Snowflake will increase its Azure spend commit, with both companies jointly supporting go-to-market efforts. The company will expand its strategic initiatives with Microsoft to empower data scientists and developers with industry-leading AI solutions, build new integrations between the data cloud and Azure ML, and leverage integrations with Azure OpenAI and Microsoft Cognitive Services.

With the Azure ML integration, joint customers will be able to accelerate the entire development to production workflow for machine learning with access to the latest frameworks, integrated CI/CD, and more.

“Snowflake’s partnership with Microsoft is evolving and focused on improving our field collaboration to help our customers enter the next wave of generative AI,” said Chris Degnan, Chief Revenue Officer, Snowflake.
