Snowflake Data Cloud has launched in South Africa and already various companies are taking hold of what they have to offer! I attended a virtual launch of Snowflake recently and realised that we have great technology that can help us evolve as a country if only more South African businesses knew how it could benefit them.

Snowflake Partners – Tyme Bank
South Africa’s first digital bank and one of the fasted growing digital banks in the world, officially launched in February of 2019. They fully rely on their banking apps as they have no branches. They rely fully on Data to fully track and record business insights and product performance. Snowflake enabled them to focus on the actual results of the data instead of wasting time maintaining the data system.
