The move of IT to the cloud is, without doubt, an unstoppable juggernaut now.

The COVID-19 pandemic has, if anything, accelerated this by years. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, management consultants like McKinsey, and market researchers like Gartner have all recently confirmed this trend.

This week Onepoint's partner Snowflake went public, raising a larger than planned USD3.4bn — the largest initial public offering ever for a software company in the US. 

The appetite for Snowflake's listing comes as no surprise. Even esteemed value investor Warren Buffet had got on the Snowflake bandwagon (or is that the Snowflake snowball?). 

We apply Snowflake to solve some of our clients' biggest data headaches. It's all about enabling and speeding up business outcomes. These include improving cost efficiencies, getting better insights, making better decisions, increasing agility, minimising vendor lock-in, and taking advantage of best-in-breed solutions. 

I'm excited to be working with Snowflake on this next stage of their journey to enable and power our clients' data and analytics strategies. 

Think Snowflake might be relevant to your organisation? We recommend a free half-day Onepoint Springboard design thinking workshop  — virtually, of course! The workshop will explore your business drivers and outcomes with you and a multidisciplinary team. Feel free to drop me a line at [email protected]
