Deloitte Named Snowflake GSI Partner of the Year

NEW YORK, June 14, 2022 — Deloitte today announced it has been named Global Systems Integrator (GSI) Partner of the Year award winner by Snowflake, the Data Cloud company. The award was presented this week at Snowflake Summit 2022 “The World of Data Collaboration” and marks the second year in a row that Deloitte has been recognized as GSI Partner of the Year, signifying the impact Deloitte has made in developing Snowflake competency and successfully delivering the value of Snowflake to joint clients.

“Snowflake’s strong partner ecosystem is foundational to our mission of enabling every organization to be data-driven. Together with Deloitte, we can help our customers better activate and unlock their data for business value,” said Colleen Kapase, SVP, global alliances at Snowflake. “We have helped joint clients realize the value of cloud modernization and business transformation opportunities and we look forward to expanding our work together to fully leverage Deloitte’s expertise.”

Deloitte and Snowflake are delivering business value to clients as demonstrated with the recent work completed for Illumina, a leading global medtech company. Illumina engaged Deloitte to help migrate its legacy analytics platform to Snowflake’s single, integrated platform. By offloading legacy data ecosystems to Snowflake, Illumina was able to make data accessible and actionable for stakeholders company-wide and empower a data-oriented culture. Deloitte’s implementation of Snowflake’s Data Cloud helped Illumina to optimize data processes and integrate analytics into existing workflows, improving data processing by 80% and reducing operating costs by 25%.

“Deloitte has been a collaborative alliance throughout the data analytics modernization project, bringing a multi-functional team to the table with in-depth data, industry knowledge and strong competency in Snowflake,” said Greg Apker, director of analytics and insights, commercial operations admin dept., Illumina. “With Deloitte and Snowflake, decision-makers across the company now have access to the right data and insights at the right time.”

Deloitte’s alliance with Snowflake enables clients to generate significant value and addresses common challenges of cost, disruption and the need for stronger insights that can prohibit clients from embarking on large scale legacy modernization. Deloitte’s approach to modernization focuses on five key areas: intelligent automation that removes human interaction needed for low value and often repetitive activities; hyper-intelligent insights that improve decision making and understanding from complex sources; transformed engagement between humans and machines; innovation of new products, markets and business models; and fortified trust to secure the organization from potential risks such as fraud and cyber to enable greater transparency and enhance brand trust.

“We are proud of what we have accomplished with Snowflake for our joint clients as we help them redefine their modernization efforts and we are grateful to be recognized as GSI Partner of the Year,” said Frank Farrall, principal - AI and data alliances leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “We look forward to cultivating more opportunities with Snowflake that enable organizations to tackle their transformation priorities faster and more efficiently.”
