Snowflake partners can be categorized into different types based on their area of expertise, their role in the Snowflake ecosystem, and the size of their business.
Here are some of the different types of Snowflake partners:
Technology partners: These partners develop and sell products and services that are compatible with the Snowflake platform. This includes data integration tools, data transformation tools, data visualization tools, and machine learning tools.
System integrators: These partners help customers to implement and deploy the Snowflake platform. They also provide consulting services to help customers to get the most out of the Snowflake platform.
Cloud service providers: These partners offer Snowflake as part of their cloud computing platform. This includes Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
Independent software vendors (ISVs): These partners develop and sell applications that run on the Snowflake platform. This includes data warehouse applications, business intelligence applications, and machine learning applications.
Managed service providers (MSPs): These partners offer managed services for the Snowflake platform. This includes monitoring, backup, and disaster recovery services.
In addition to these categories, Snowflake also has a number of specialized partner programs, such as the Snowflake Global System Integrators (GSI) Program, the Snowflake Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) Program, and the Snowflake Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Program. These programs are designed to help partners to develop and market their products and services to Snowflake customers.
