Snowflake announced the launch of applications built, distributed, and deployed natively in the Data Cloud.
With the new Native Application Framework, currently in private preview, developers can build applications and monetize them on Snowflake Marketplace, and consumers can securely install and run those applications, directly in their Snowflake instances, reducing the need for data to be moved. Snowflake is committed to providing its customers and partners with the best platform for building data-intensive applications, and Snowflake’s Native Application Framework is an important milestone in that journey.
With the Native Application Framework, in private preview, developers can build applications using Snowflake functionalities such as stored procedures, user-defined functions (UDFs), and user-defined table functions (UDTFs). Capabilities including the Streamlit integration for developing interactive customer interfaces and telemetry features including events and alerts for monitoring and troubleshooting are also under development. Snowflake’s Native Application Framework accelerates application development by building on Snowflake’s high availability and disaster recovery, global collaboration capabilities, and security posture so developers in the Data Cloud can focus on functionality, and not operational burden.
Additionally it allows developers to distribute and monetize their applications to Snowflake’s 6,300 customers (as of April 30, 2022) through Snowflake Marketplace. These applications run within end customers’ Snowflake accounts, meaning data doesn’t have to be moved or shared, so developers can deliver optimal functionality without having to manage sensitive customer data.
By expanding Snowflake Marketplace to include applications that run natively in the Data Cloud, customers can:
- Get value faster by discovering and installing applications with just a few clicks.
- Improve security and governance by using applications directly in their Snowflake instances.
- Access cutting-edge technologies like global data clean room applications from partners like Habu for extended collaboration efforts.
“Applications have been a part of Snowflake’s DNA from day one,” said Chris Child, Senior Director, Product Management, Snowflake. “The Native Application Framework enables every customer to step into the future with a seamless way to build, distribute, and use applications natively in the Data Cloud.”
