Snowflake makes it easy to access data of all kinds, including external data sources through the Snowflake Data Marketplace, in one secure, central location. Meanwhile, Alteryx helps you make full use of that data by enabling employees across skillsets and functions to prep, blend and analyze that data in a low code / no code interface.


Whether you’re using Alteryx in-database processing tools to take advantage of Snowflake’s compute engine for greater analytic speed, or using Alteryx to combine disparate data sources from Snowflake for richer insights, this native integration makes it easy and accessible for knowledge workers across the organization to drive high-value outcomes. Before you create your Snowflake account and start a trial, make sure you check whether you’ll need a credit card to begin. Pricing will depend on the option you choose, and you can always check with Snowflake support to see which option is best for you.
