phData Awarded Snowflake 2022 Partner of the Year

By Mitch Rudolph

phData just hit a spectacular, and frankly, gigantic milestone today as we were announced as the 2022 Snowflake Partner of the Year at Snowflake Summit in Las Vegas.

This recognition is a big deal for us, our customers, our employees, and our partners.

The Snowflake Partner of the Year award is the highest attainable partner recognition possible within the North American Snowflake Data Cloud partner ecosystem. We couldn’t be happier and more excited!

“We are excited, honored, and humbled to receive this prestigious award from our partners at Snowflake,” said Ryan Bosshart, CEO of phData. “This award is a spot-on reflection of the passion, grit, and dedication we’ve poured into helping our clients succeed with Snowflake and the investments we’ve made in training our experts on the platform.”

Why Did Snowflake Choose phData?

Snowflake selected phData for several reasons. The most influential metric is phData’s positive impact on joint customers. This includes everything from completed migrations, number of platform management engagements, automation projects, creation of machine learning foundations, and so much more.

Additionally, phData’s expertise in the entire data cloud: data sharing, data engineering, data cleanrooms, and Powered by Snowflake continue to propel us within the ranks of Snowflake’s growing partner network. 

What Does This Award Mean for phData?

What makes this award so important is that it validates and recognizes all of the long hours, collaboration, grit, education, and expertise we’ve poured into every customer engagement with our partners at Snowflake. We’ve been thrilled with the results and outcomes Snowflake delivers to our customers and we’re elated to have been selected as the Americas Snowflake Partner of the Year. 

It would be irresponsible to accept this award without thanking our customers for their continued faith and trust in phData as we help them build a more data-driven future, together. Without our customers, we, of course, wouldn’t be here but more importantly, our customers give us the ultimate gift that a team of data and analytics junkies loves, a good challenge. 

At phData, we love solving complex and challenging problems for our customers, and it’s this type of work that has accelerated the capabilities and expertise of our team within the Snowflake platform and beyond. With over 60 joint Snowflake customers, we’ve done some fantastic work. 

To showcase just one example, we invite you to explore our work with NextGen Healthcare. This project had a little bit of everything, the creation of a custom software solution, successful migration to Snowflake, analytics reporting, and if we may be so bold, a crazy fast timeline.

We’re so grateful for every customer and frankly, without them, we’d never make it on the radar to prestigious awards like this. On behalf of the entire phData team, we’d like to extend the most sincere and heartfelt thank you to Snowflake and our amazing customers. 

Lastly, we couldn’t possibly accept this award without thanking the now “award-winning” team at phData for all their hard work, passion for learning, next-level collaboration, and grit to get shit done, and get it done well.
