TOP 100 GLOBAL SALES LEADERS 2019

Chris Degnan

Chief Revenue Officer
Snowflake Computing

Degnan, the chief revenue officer of Snowflake Computing since 2013, has been a stalwart in ushering in the cloud-based data-warehousing start-up’s state-of-the-art multi-clustered shared data architecture. The 21st-century move has enlivened the six-year-old San Mateo, California–based firm. “Effectively, what that allows us to do is have multiple compute-clusters access the same data at the same time, and from a business standpoint, the ultimate problem that we solved is the ability for thousands of users to access the same data at the same time,” Degnan said in an interview with Alex on Tech on Youtube in April. “If you actually go into talking to folks with large enterprise data warehouses, concurrency is probably the No. 1 pain point that the customers have in the enterprise data warehousing space.”
