KNIME Accelerates Data Science Democratization Through Snowflake Collaboration

KNIME | June 10, 2022

KNIME
KNIME, the open source data science company, today announced a strategic partnership with Snowflake, the Data Cloud company, to democratize access to data analytics across all roles and departments.

Understanding data is critical for creating business value. With the global data analytics market worth more than $200 billion, it’s necessary for as many people as possible across roles, departments and industries to have access to analytics in their daily jobs for overall better productivity.

“Many of our customers rely on Snowflake to power virtually any data workload at scale, while utilizing KNIME to gain value from that data.”

Paul Treichler, VP of global partnerships at KNIME

Tarik Dwiek, Snowflake’s head of technology partnerships, added, “In partnership with KNIME, we look to enrich the Snowflake ecosystem with tools that can enable an even greater share of enterprises and both technical and non-technical users of data.”

The joint offering means that users can access and manipulate data in Snowflake with a low-/no-code platform at no cost. KNIME Analytics Platform is a fully featured analytics workflow “designer” that can be used in conjunction with Snowflake’s Data Cloud to perform a broad range of analytics tasks from data prep to data science. Users can leverage the drag-and-drop interface to prepare and explore data, rapidly build analytical models, create data apps, and present results in BI tools such as Tableau or Power BI.

KNIME is flexible and extensible, giving data experts the freedom to work in their preferred environment. Users can build sophisticated analytic models in its low-code/no-code environment or script custom algorithms in a language of their choice with built-in integrations with R, Python, Java and more.

KNIME has a vibrant open source community of users who share their knowledge and expertise in specialized forums. Technical and non-technical teams can make use of this community to leverage pre-built components and workflows to accelerate their time to value and also upskill themselves through comprehensive free training and learning content available from KNIME. Upskilling non-technical teams to use data science and analytics leaves technical teams with greater bandwidth and freedom to concentrate on more complex tasks.

Across industries, enterprises can also take advantage of KNIME’s commercial offering. KNIME Server offers a suite of features for automation, governance, production deployment and MLOps. Snowflake working in concert with KNIME Server enables organizations to move beyond pilot projects and build enterprise-scale data solutions that are compliant and accessible across the organization. Lastly, KNIME extends the deployment flexibility of Snowflake to the analytics layer, allowing enterprises to utilize the right resources for a given workload or scenario.

“We are excited about the partnership between Snowflake and KNIME," said Ryan Bosshart, CEO of phData, the Snowflake 2021 RSI Partner of the Year and KNIME Elite Partner. “We've been building with both Snowflake and KNIME because we believe in platforms and technology that make it easier for people to build data products, in both business and technical roles. I’m excited to see what new use cases are possible with this combination.”

Promethium, the solution for collaborative data analytics, has been named the best Data Tools & Platforms of 2022 as part of the annual SIIA CODiE Awards. The CODiE Awards recognize the companies producing the most innovative business technology products across the country, and around the world. "Winning this CODiE award for Best Data Tools & Platforms is a great honor," said Promethium CEO and Founder Kaycee Lai. "When I worked as a data analyst the workflows were slow and broken, and they still are today. There wasn't one single solution that made it faster and easier for everyone - technical or not - to leverage data. So we built one. Now the workflow from question to data to answer takes minutes instead of months." Promethium's collaborative data and analytics offers two major advantages. First of all, it's an all-in-one solution. The entire data and analytics workflow can be completed by one person with one solution without long wait times, while also reducing costs. Secondly, it's powerful enough for data engineers, and easy enough for everyone else. Complexity has been eliminated with a no-code user experience and powerful Natural Language Processing automation. Last year Promethium was a CODiE awards finalist for Best Data Tools & Platforms. "Even during these tumultuous times, business application, software, service and product providers continued the industry's long tradition of developing and marketing innovative solutions to meet business needs. "We are proud to recognize this year's class of CODiE Award winners. They truly represent the best of the best in a highly-competitive and ever-evolving market." SIIA President Jeff Joseph The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, announced the full slate of CODiE winners during an online winner announcement June 8 in the metaverse. Acknowledged as the premier awards program for the software and information industries for over 35 years, the SIIA CODiE Awards are produced by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software, education, media and digital content industries. Promethium was honored as one of 46 winners across the 45 business technology categories, including seven leadership categories recognizing outstanding companies, individuals and teams. The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program. The first-round review of all nominees is conducted by software and business technology experts with considerable industry expertise, including analysts, media, bloggers, bankers and investors. The scores from the expert judge review determine the finalists. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products, and the scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners. Forty-three awards were given this year for products and services deployed specifically for B2B software, information and media companies, including the Best Overall Business Technology Product, awarded to the product with the highest scores of both rounds of judging. About the SIIA CODiE™ Awards The SIIA CODiE Awards is the only peer-reviewed program to showcase business and education technology's finest products and services.
