We’re heading to the States with Snowflake Software Inc.!
We are very excited and pleased to announce the opening of our first US office and the launch of Snowflake Software Inc.
Snowflake Software is expanding into North America as a direct result of positive business growth within the Air Traffic Management (ATM) sector. “Opening our first US office is a strategic move to develop both our ATM business and our partner base in North America. It’s also about being closer and more accessible to our current US customers”, explains Ian Painter, CEO at Snowflake.
The new office will be in the Capital Gallery Building in Washington, D.C., close to Independence Avenue, where the Federal Aviation Administration is based. A local team is being recruited who will be supported on a regular basis by senior management from the UK.
Based on open standards, our unique GO Loader and GO Publisher software products enable organisations to build NextGen infrastructure on top of existing systems. Importantly we take a ‘configuration only’ approach where our products act as an open standards ‘wrapper’ enabling organisations to exchange Aeronautical (AIXM), Weather (WXXM) and Flight (FIXM) information in accordance to the net-centric goals of System Wide Information Management (SWIM). Through adopting such an approach, organisations de-risk their move towards NextGen whilst at the same time increasing the interoperability of their existing technology investment. We recently received the SESAR SWIM MasterClass Best in Class Award and the ATC Global Excellence Award for our work in building SWIM B2B Web Services using open standards.
The newly incorporated Snowflake Software Inc. will operate as the North American subsidiary of parent company Snowflake Software Ltd.
Ian Painter will be out in the US for the ATCA Technical Symposium on 21-23rd May in Atlantic City, New Jersey. This is a great opportunity for us to meet with US organisations specifically involved in the ATM domain. To arrange a meeting with Ian at the Technical Symposium please get in touch or look out for the Snowflake stand during the event.
