Call it kismet or just plain-old great collaboration, but the relationship between Snowflake, Matillion and InterWorks continues to produce some real data magic. We’ve worked together for a few years now, but 2020 was a particularly notable year (in a good way) in terms of helping others streamline the way they work with their data, especially in the Asia-Pacific market. But before we get into the details, let’s break down the players in this relationship for anyone who might be unfamiliar:
- First, you have Snowflake – the only data platform built for the cloud. Thanks to its scalability, performance and flexibility, it’s rapidly becoming the cloud data platform of choice.
- Next, you have Matillion – creators of Matillion ETL and Matillion Data Loader, both of which were purpose-built for the cloud and capable of powerful data integration and transformation.
- Finally, you have InterWorks (that’s us) – we’re a people-driven tech consultancy that helps people get the most out of their data to make better business decisions.
Together, this partnership trio can cover a lot of ground on the data continuum, which puts our shared clients in an excellent position to access and utilize data however they need.
Brian Bickell, InterWorks Global Data Practice Director, weighs in: “As businesses continue to face an uncertain future, we believe one certainty is that they will need to take advantage of all of the data they have to make better decisions. The organizations who realize the analytical value of their data and treat it as a competitive differentiator will outcompete those who do not. Developing this capability for customers, in the cloud, with the best partners is our goal.”
The Partnership Trio Takes on Asia-Pacific
Now, back to that bit about Asia-Pacific. It’s true that Snowflake, Matillion and InterWorks are all global companies. Together, we help clients of all shapes and sizes in markets around the world, but each market is a little different. In 2020, interest in Snowflake and Matillion among our Asia-Pacific clients skyrocketed. The result is our biggest year in the market yet, earning both Matillion and InterWorks Partner of the Year honors from Snowflake.
Matillion earned Data Integration Partner of the Year, while InterWorks earned Regional Solutions Innovation Integrator for Asia-Pacific and Japan. In other words, Matillion is great at augmenting Snowflake with their data transformation technology, and InterWorks is great at connecting all the dots within a data stack. The best part is that all along the way, Snowflake, Matillion and InterWorks were working towards the same goals – making data more accessible and useful.
“Global enterprises need solutions that provide access to insights quicker. Together, InterWorks and Matillion deliver cloud data integration and management solutions to enable top enterprises to accelerate their critical data projects,” said Daniel Shah, senior director, consulting partners at Matillion. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with them and serving more customers in the APAC region.”
Notable Work Examples from 2020
It’s always nice to get awards, but we’re prouder of the organizations we’ve helped along the way, especially in the face of uncertain circumstances like those of the past year-and-a-half. The trio of Snowflake, Matillion and InterWorks has made a real impact in organizations large and small across virtually every industry. In fact, you can see exactly what that impact looks like at the following organizations:
- Transurban (Case Study)
- The Australian Football League (Case Study)
“We had an amazing year working with amazing clients last year. I think that’s reflected in the recognition that we’ve received from Snowflake, Tableau and Matillion, our key partnerships,” said Robert Curtis, Regional Director, APAC for InterWorks. “And I’m even more excited for the great things that we’re doing in 2021.”

If there’s one thing we hope you take away here, it’s this: Snowflake, Matillion and InterWorks are well positioned to help you accelerate your success with data. The beauty of technologies like Snowflake and Matillion is that they make it easy to find success, whether you have a mature data practice in place or you’re just laying the groundwork.
