Cloud data platform company Snowflake has launched a new connector for Microsoft Power Platform for use in apps and flows.
The Snowflake Connector eliminates the need to manually integrate against API endpoints, according to the company. Their documentation explains that the connector "is a wrapper around the Snowflake SQL API that allows users of both platforms to read and write data to and from Snowflake from their Power Automate flows."
A Power Apps app can use a Snowflake data source in the context of an app, including read, write, and insert actions. The integration, using a Power Automate instant cloud flow, supports synchronous and asynchronous queries. The connector uses Azure AD authentication.
Snowflake Connector is available for installation as a Power Platform Connector for premium Power Platform licensees, according to Snowflake.
“This integration is a direct result of strong customer demand to help them expand the value of Snowflake’s robust data capabilities across their organization through Microsoft’s low-code offerings,” says Ashvini Sharma, Partner Group Product Manager, Power Automate at Microsoft.
Microsoft and Snowflake have had a native Power BI connector with SSO since 2020.
Snowflake recently reported its Q1 2024 earnings with $590 million in revenue and a net loss of $273.2 million.
