DataRobot at the Snowflake Data Cloud Summit

DataRobot is a proud sponsor of Snowflake’s Data Cloud Summit 2020, which takes place on November 17, 2020. The Snowflake Summit serves as a great opportunity to learn about key Snowflake partners, including DataRobot. As the leader in enterprise AI, our partnership with Snowflake, the leading cloud data platform, simplifies the movement of data for AI and machine learning, accelerating time to value for joint customers. 

Join us at 10:20 AM PST as we present DataRobot + Snowflake: Retaining Customers and Increasing Business Profits. The DataRobot team will discuss our elite partnership with Snowflake and share how joint customers, such as US Foods, a foodservice distributor who analyzes data from over 300,000 customers for predictive insights, are using our technologies to address customer retention and churn. Session attendees will also see a demo that shows how easy it is to use AI and automated machine learning to retain customers, grow an organization, increase profits, and build brand value. And the learning won’t stop there. If you like what you see during the session, we provide step-by-step guidance for replicating the process for yourself in the Virtual Hands-On Lab with Snowflake.

Advanced Authentication with Snowflake

In addition to our sponsorship of the Snowflake Data Cloud Summit, we are also pleased to announce the addition of OAuth/Single Sign-On authentication functionality to our Snowflake integration. This functionality, which will go live on DataRobot’s Managed Cloud offering on November 30, allows customers to more seamlessly integrate DataRobot and Snowflake while adhering to the strictest enterprise security standards. As the only AI/machine learning-focused partner to support this level of security, DataRobot is ready to operationalize your AI/machine learning workloads with Snowflake!
