Atlan announces partnership with Snowflake to enable data collaboration across the modern data stack

Atlan, the data collaboration hub for modern data teams announced a deep partnership with Snowflake, the Data Cloud company. Just a few months ago, Atlan had announced its Series A fundraise led by Insight Partners along with high profile angels such as Bob Muglia, the former CEO of Snowflake.

Atlan’s data collaboration platform creates a unified discovery and collaboration experience across the entire modern data stack. By combining data cataloging, lineage, and governance, Atlan equips data teams to build, ship and maintain outputs like true engineers while enabling the rest of the organization to self-serve.

"We are excited to partner with Atlan to offer their modern data governance and collaboration capabilities to our customers. Atlan's open API based approach, pay-as-you-go model, and delightful user experience align well with Snowflake’s own ethos, and what customers are demanding from their tools."

Tarik Dwiek, Head of Global Technology Partnerships at Snowflake

Atlan's quick DIY setup, pay-as-you-go approach, and collaborative lens to data governance have garnered traction quickly with Snowflake's customer base.

Danielle Boeglin Ragan, Vice President of Data & Analytics at Techstyle commented, “As we rolled out our modern data platform on Snowflake, we were looking for a product that made it easier to democratize our data and was less dependent on someone central answering each individual analyst’s questions on a one-off basis. Legacy solutions in the market were tailored to legacy systems and approaches where IT or a single data stewardship team owns the data. Atlan was the only solution that was built for a collaborative, bottom-up approach. With native integrations with our modern analytics stack like Snowflake and Tableau, Atlan was very easy to set up. We had all of our data sources flowing within the first day.”

Simultaneously, Atlan customers benefit from the speed, scalability, and cost-effectiveness of Snowflake’s platform. With Snowflake, analytics that previously took hours to even days can now be delivered in minutes, enabling companies to generate more trustworthy and accurate analytics, more quickly and easily.

Another joint customer, Scripps Health uses Atlan to speed up their data warehouse and BI development process. As Victor Wilson, Data Architect at Scripps Health said, "As we continue to grow our cloud environment with Snowflake and BI tools like PowerBI, our largest gap was lack of enterprise-scale visibility into what we were developing. From a developer perspective, the ability to purvey the data environment and quickly identify data sets for your projects (and see the relationships and lineage between assets) will significantly speed up development. From a consumer perspective, having all of the metadata (business and technical) in a single place improves the consumption and usage of the products we produce. Atlan is a great product and one that we would definitely recommend. Compared to other products in the marketplace, the combination of features, pay-as-you-go pricing model, and access to the product team is unmatched."

Bob Muglia, Snowflake's former CEO and an angel investor in Atlan, commented, "Atlan’s unique, collaboration first approach for the modern data stack helps to break down organizational silos and empower cross-functional teams to work together to make better business decisions."

Atlan and Snowflake are together building a strong joint roadmap to enable deeper integration between both platforms. "Our native Snowflake integration is incredibly deep and best in class. We generate lineage at an individual column level in Snowflake and can extend this to BI tools like Looker and Tableau — all as a native capability. We are making significant investments into our joint roadmap with Snowflake and super excited to usher customers into the data governance 3.0 era together," said Prukalpa, co-founder of Atlan.

Atlan was recently recognized as a Gartner Cool Vendor 2020 in DataOps, one of the top 3 companies globally to make the list.

Atlan and Snowflake, along with partners such as Looker, recently announced the launch of the Modern Data Platform Webinar Series to feature the best-in-class tools and practices needed to create a modern data platform.

EAGLYS, Mitsui and Quantinuum Collaborate to Build a Quantum-Resistant Data Analytics (AI) Platform Using Quantum Computing Hardened Encryption Keys

Mitsui & Co., Ltd | December 13, 2023

In partnership, EAGLYS, Inc., Mitsui & Co., Ltd., and Quantinuum have integrated Quantum Origin into EAGLYS' secure computation product DataArmor, strengthening the platform against the quantum threat to encrypted data. Mitsui and EAGLYS have used secure computation technology to build a platform that allows research institutes and businesses to securely collaborate using each other's data and AI models. DataArmor uniquely maintains the confidentiality and security of sensitive data and AI models using homomorphic encryption, a technology that allows analysis to be performed on data while still encrypted. This protects encrypted data from being revealed when shared, safeguarding organizations and their Intellectual Property against advanced cyber threats. EAGLYS has now integrated Quantum Origin, the world's only solution that uses the power of quantum computing processes to provably strengthen encryption keys, as part of their Quantum-Resistant Data Analytics (AI) Platform. This integration strengthens the resilience of DataArmor against the threat of a quantum-computing-based attack. Quantum computers are expected to empower significant innovation in the future and create approximately 100 trillion yen in value by 20351. At the same time, the development of quantum computing technology presents a new threat to the cryptographic security measures that protect the confidentiality of encrypted data and communications. RSA, one of the most widely used cryptographic algorithms, may soon be deciphered by cybercriminals to expose confidential data. It is unclear when a quantum computer will be capable of cracking existing encryption, but organizations are increasingly concerned about cyber security attacks called 'Hack now, Decrypt later.' A recent Deloitte survey revealed that over 50%2 of cyber professionals believe their organization is at risk from this attack, where malicious third parties steal and store encrypted data to decrypt it when the quantum computing technology is available. As a countermeasure against such potential threats, organizations must strengthen encryption protection for data and AI models by using post-quantum cryptographic algorithms and hardening cryptographic keys. Research institutes and businesses increasingly need to collaborate using each other's data and AI models to accelerate innovation in chemical materials development, drug discovery, financial analysis, and retail trends. To maintain the confidentiality and security of the data and AI models used in these collaborations, EAGLYS' DataArmor platform combines fully homomorphic encryption based on lattice cryptography and Quantum Origin's quantum-derived entropy for key generation to strengthen protection against a quantum computing based attack. Going forward, the three companies will continue to develop new use cases utilizing this platform. "We are pleased to collaborate on this advanced project with Quantinuum, a world-class quantum computing company, and our valued partner Mitsui & Co. This collaboration is an important initiative for our business and will enhance our Homomorphic Encryption platform, enabling us to create new value for our customers through AI and data in a highly secure environment. By deploying the Quantum-Resilient AI Platform together with the three companies, we hope to further increase customer value through secure data sharing and AI in the chemical, medical, financial, and retail industries.", said Hiroki Imabayashi, Founder and CEO, EAGLYS Inc. "Through this collaboration, we are able to present a quantum-resistant data analytics (AI) platform capable of creating new value using EAGLYS' secure computation technology. We are convinced that by combining EAGLYS' secure computation technology with Quantum Origin, DataArmor will become an increasingly important solution to prepare for potential threats that may accompany the commercialization of quantum computers. We will continue collaborating with both companies and focus on realizing new customer value by combining Secure Computation and Quantum Technology." said Koji Naniwada, Deputy General Manager & Senior Tech Lead, Quantum Innovation Dept., Corporate Development Div., Mitsui & Co., Ltd. Duncan Jones, Head of Cybersecurity, Quantinuum, added, "Hardening encryption keys is critical to protecting sensitive data in the post-quantum era, and Quantum Origin is the world's only technology that provably strengthens key generation.
