AccuWeather Brings Innovative Solutions to Retailers on Snowflake’s Retail Data Cloud
AccuWeather’s data can improve operational efficiencies, optimize supply chains and deliver more personalized customer experiences for retailers on Snowflake’s easy-to-use platform
AccuWeather Global Weather Center, April 14, 2022 — AccuWeather today announced the availability of its superior weather data on Snowflake Retail Data Cloud, empowering retailers, manufacturers, distributors, consumer packaged goods (CPG) vendors, and industry technology providers to leverage the world's most accurate weather data to improve performance and drive efficiency. Retailers can use massive amounts of weather data to train models to determine weather’s impact on sales, seasonal inventory, consumer behavior and more.
AccuWeather’s latest historical weather data set, the most complete and comprehensive collection of historical weather data available, is also generally accessible in Snowflake’s Retail Data Cloud via the Snowflake Data Marketplace. In addition to the decades of comprehensive weather data, data scientists can now leverage a data set with 10+ years of historical weather data with 100+ parameters that are consistent throughout the dataset, including the patented and exclusive AccuWeather RealFeel® temperature. Using an enhanced technique, AccuWeather provides weather data at only precise locations that matter, giving retailers what they need most to make actionable decisions.
“We are thrilled to bring our historic weather data capabilities and resources to the Snowflake Retail Data Cloud,” said AccuWeather Chief Data Officer, Chris Patti. “The combination of AccuWeather’s sophisticated historical weather data and content solutions, with Snowflake’s secure data sharing capabilities, can give the user a significant strategic advantage against the competition.”
“AccuWeather is a brand that people trust for global forecasts, and businesses can use these same forecasts for their business strategy, from supply chain management to distribution,” said Rosemary Hua, Retail and CPG Industry GTM lead at Snowflake. “Weather is an important piece of this process and relevant to the way consumers make purchase decisions. Will summer arrive later this year? When should I begin stocking up items for outdoor home renovations? We are thrilled to now provide users with reliable, accurate data and insights that can help answer those important questions.”
When retailers utilize AccuWeather’s historical data and daily forecasts, they can strengthen their machine learning and artificial intelligence efforts, and see their profits surge, despite the challenge retailers are experiencing, getting ahead of the difficult operating environment. Weather can help retailers determine when to stock their shelves and keep up with consumer demand.
