In the general context of cloud data platforms like Snowflake, “native apps” typically refer to applications or tools that are purpose-built and optimized to work seamlessly with the platform. These apps are designed to leverage the platform’s capabilities efficiently and provide a streamlined user experience.
For Snowflake, native apps could include tools or applications developed by Snowflake itself or by third-party vendors that closely integrate with Snowflake’s architecture and services. These native apps may offer functionalities such as data visualization, data transformation, data integration, data cataloging, monitoring, and more.
On Snowflake’s marketplace, there’s an entire section dedicated to Snowflake Native Apps. Currently, there are 27 Data products available. These apps are ready to be installed and run directly in your Snowflake account.
Here, at ITS Snowflake Solutions, we’ve been exploring Snowflake Native Applications since February 2022. Our team is doing some of the most advanced Native Applications for Snowflake, and we are tremendously excited to roll out new Native Applications now on Private Listings and later this year as public listings.
