Snowflake is set to launch its service in Indonesia via the AWS Asia Pacific (Jakarta) Region in April 2023, enabling companies to accelerate their migration to the data cloud.
The company’s cloud data warehouse is designed to enable customers to access and work with their data without requiring many of the extract, transform and load tasks that slow and complicate data management and analytics.
Its data cloud platform helps companies break down data silos - bringing structured, semi structured, and unstructured data in one location, allowing users to gain critical business insights. Snowflake's Data Cloud platform helps organisations execute their most critical workloads through a multi-cluster shared data architecture, via a fully managed platform that capitalises on the near-infinite resources of the cloud.
On top of that, the platform allows near-limitless access so that organizations can develop and run data applications, models, and pipelines where data resides, all while unlocking cost-efficiency through a usage-based, per-second pricing model.
Snowflake’s expansion into Indonesia will bring the power of the data cloud to more enterprises across Southeast Asia. With operations in Indonesia, Snowflake now has offices and operations across 30 countries.
“In today's highly competitive world businesses across all sectors are looking to harness the power of data and offer hyper personalized services to customers, accelerating revenue and growth. Leading global companies have transformed to become data-driven enterprises by democratising access to data and enabling data collaboration, and data monetisation,” said Sanjay Deshmukh, senior vice president ASEAN and India, Snowflake.
“As businesses in Indonesia embrace digital technologies, there is an urgent need to make data-driven decisions and unlock the value of data that will fuel growth and innovation in their companies.”Sanjay Deshmukh, Snowflake
Unify data at scale
With data residency legislation in Indonesia, the need to unify data across the ecosystem is now a business-critical need.
Snowflake customers in Indonesia will be able to mobilise data at scale and maximise the value of their data to drive innovation, business agility, and performance. Snowflake's ability to unify data across silos and enable a vibrant data ecosystem for data users will enable organisations to build a more responsive, resilient digital operation in Indonesia.
"AWS and Snowflake share a common obsession for customers, which underpins our long-standing collaboration that has spanned more than 20 Snowflake horizontal product integrations with AWS,” said Gunawan Susanto, country manager, Indonesia, AWS.
