Long gone are the days where consumers have to copy data, use APIs, or wait days, weeks and sometimes even months to gain access to datasets. With Snowflake Data Marketplace, analysts around the world are getting the information they need to make important decisions for their businesses in a blink of an eye and at the palm of their hands.
So what is it and how does it work?
The Snowflake Data Marketplace is essentially a home to a variety of live, ready-to-query data. It utilizes Snowflake Secure Data Sharing to connect providers of data with consumers, as of now providing access to 229 datasets. As a consumer, you can discover and access a variety of third-party data and have those datasets available directly in your Snowflake account to query. There is no need for transformation and joining it with your own data takes only a few minutes. If you need to use several different vendors for data sourcing, the Data Marketplace gives you one single location from where to get the data.
