The Rise of the Data Cloud


Jeff Frazier, VP of Global Public Sector at Snowflake. We cover Jeff's unique perspectives on reimagining the data cloud, the waves of adoption in the public sector, and how to leverage the data cloud to power IT modernization, improve citizen services and drive innovation and efficiency.

The founders gave us a gift- really gave the world a gift- when they built this layer that sits above those three clouds; the innovation was, they separated storage from compute. So it's almost a utility model: you only use when you consume ~ Jeff Frazier

When you have a stable edge, when one agency is sharing with other agencies, now they can do that much more efficiently through cloud-enabled technologies and native cloud technologies. You start to see a very different impact on the mission ~ Jeff Frazier

This is why Snowflake thought this through from that standpoint, saying "We're going to throw away the playbook and build it brand new from native Cloud." Because that's where the world will be, and that's where the efficiencies will take place. And that's where people will achieve faster ~Jeff Frazier
