Get Started With Zepl and Snowflake In Minutes

Today we are proud to announce our partnership with Snowflake! Zepl’s powerful Data Science as a Service (DSaaS) platform built for the cloud complements Snowflake’s highly scalable cloud data warehouse, enabling Snowflake customers to accelerate the ROI on their data warehouse solutions with machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities.
Digital transformation and innovation have spawned a new era where the sources and quantities of data are growing exponentially. This frequently results in an environment of “tool sprawl” where a number of disparate, siloed tools — such as business intelligence (BI) tools, relational databases, predictive analytics tools, streaming analytics tools, and NoSQL databases — are used for data-driven decision making. For organizations hoping to derive meaningful and strategic insights from these large sets of data, the result is typically data overload, operational bottlenecks, and siloed analytical practices.
Zepl & Snowflake help you break free from systems that inhibit your ability to innovate, scale and grow your business. With Snowflake, you can concentrate on solving business problems rather than managing your data warehouse. Zepl provides your team the data science solutions they need to solve those problems – languages such as SQL, Python, R, and Scala, integrations into solutions like Tensorflow, Keras, Caffe2, and expansive embedded visual analytics – in a cloud-hosted environment. Zepl offers teams of data scientists flexibility, efficiency, and stability in their workflows that simply isn’t possible when working on local machines with traditional or open-source data science tools. Together, Zepl & Snowflake give your analytics users all the insights they need from all your data, when they need it, to advance your business.
After a quick set-up, the Zepl/Snowflake integration enables teams to gather advanced data insights from their Snowflake environment to accelerate and democratize insights, foster collaboration, and more agile decision making.
Getting Started with the Zepl and Snowflake Integration
First, you’ll need Zepl and Snowflake accounts:
Connecting Zepl & Snowflake:
1. Log into Zepl and arrive on the Zepl home screen, and click on “My Notebooks”
2. Click on “Snowflake: basic data store access”
3. Follow the the step-by-step instructions to store a connection to a Snowflake warehouse.
The integration between Zepl and Snowflake provides an easy way for teams to rapidly explore, analyze and collaborate around their Snowflake data. In just minutes, Zepl brings machine learning at scale to Snowflake data across entire data science teams. The new partnership changes the game by automating model-driven insights in a highly secure manner. Zepl rapidly accelerates experimentation, frictionless collaboration, training of ML models, and sharing of insights for Snowflake customers.
