Snowflake, Data Cloud startup, and Streamlit, a framework that makes data application development easier and faster, officially announced that they have signed a partnership agreement. As a result of this strategic acquisition, the two companies will work in unison to unlock unused data capacity and make it easier to create better applications.

Streamlit CEO and Co-Founder, Adrien Treuille said, “Streamlit’s community of developers, open-source contributors, and creators is core to our success and we’re always looking for ways to further support the community with simple and powerful tools to build apps. By joining forces with Snowflake, both the Streamlit and Snowflake developer communities will be able to tap into cutting-edge technologies for unlocking data’s true potential.”

The Streamlit open-source framework allows data engineers and scientists to build and share data applications quickly and repeatedly, without the need for an advanced development expert. Streamlit is already trusted by data engineers and scientists by creating data applications and interactive data sensors. Streamlit has over 8 million downloads, and its framework has been used to build more than 1.5 million applications.

Both the companies aim to make it convenient for developers to build apps using tools they already have an understanding about, simultaneously simplifying data access and governance.
