This year’s Strata Santa Clara, Hortonworks will also participate in a number of presentations on all things about data – don’t miss any of them!…

We’re kicking off 2014 with an evolution to our Modern Data Architecture webinar series. Last year we focused on how your existing technologies integrate with Apache Hadoop. This year we will focus on use cases for how Hadoop and your existing technologies are being used to get real value in the enterprise. Join Hortonworks, along with Microsoft, Actian, Splunk and others as we continue our journey on delivering Apache Hadoop as an Enterprise Data Platform.…

Congrats to our partner, Revolution Analytics, on the general availability of Revolution R Enterprise 7 (RRE7). With this release, you can now run R natively in Hortonworks Data Platform by simply moving their R-powered analytics to Hadoop. Users will be able to run the high-performance distributed R functions in Revolution R Enterprise without having to move the data out of Hadoop, and using the Hadoop nodes as a parallel computation grid.…

A consequence of living in a globalized, connected world  is the unfortunate presence of online fraud. Fraud applies to all industries and affects businesses of all sizes. Given that we’re coming up on the holidays, and specifically with North America’s love of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this week we partnered with Datameer on a very topical discussion  about best practices on how to fight fraud using Hortonworks Data Platform to integrate Hadoop and Datameer.…

Today our partner Rackspace announced their Big Data solution for dedicated and cloud environments, powered by Hortonworks Data Platform. This collaboration between Hortonworks and Rackspace provides customers a flexible choice of deployment offerings of Apache Hadoop from one of the most trusted vendors in the cloud computing market.

Enterprise adoption of Apache Hadoop

This expanded collaboration is a strong indicator of the ecosystem rallying around Hortonworks Data Platform and our goal at Hortonworks of making Apache Hadoop a core component of the modern data architecture, whether on premise, in a VM, as an appliance, or in the cloud.…

Today we announced the Analytics Advantage with Hadoop offering from SAS, Teradata and Hortonworks. The new offering leverages the capabilities for in-database data preparation, analytic model building and deployment and combines Teradata’s Appliance for SAS® High-Performance Analytics offering with the Teradata Appliance for Hadoop built on Hortonworks Data Platform. Using Teradata’s Unified Data Architecture (UDA), this high-speed integrated offering allows customers to discover, build and deploy analytic models across data stored in Teradata and Hadoop, promoting businesses’ ability to act upon analytic insights from any type of data across a seamless environment and faster than ever before.…

Today, we are pleased to announce our strategic alliance between Hortonworks and SAS. Through this alliance we are committing to expand the integration between the SAS business analytics and data management capabilities and the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP).

By better integrating SAS Business Analytics and HDP, SAS users can easily incorporate Hadoop as a component of their data architecture to capture, process and analyze data of any type and scale. This allows businesses to leverage powerful SAS analytic and data management capabilities across massive data sets, including new data sources that previously could not be captured and analyzed.…

We’ve been hosting a series of webinars focusing on how to make Apache Hadoop a viable enterprise platform that powers modern data architectures.

Implementing modern data architecture with Hadoop means that it must deeply integrate with existing technologies, leverage existing skills and investments and provide key services. This guest post from David Smith, Vice President of Marketing and Community at Revolution Analytics, shares his perspective on the role of a Data Scientists in a Big Data world.…

It’s not an easy task to find the right hardware configuration for Hadoop. Thanks to our partner Dell, we’ve detailed a configuration for Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) on the Dell PowerEdge R720XD. This reference configuration introduces the server set-up that can run the HDP and is intended for organizations looking on configuring Apache Hadoop clusters within their information technology environment for big data analytics.

Why is it so important for companies today to adopt a modern data architecture and why is next generation data integration on Apache Hadoop such a critical component?…

Chances are you’ve already used Tableau Software if you’ve been involved with data analysis and visualization solutions for any length of time. Tableau 6.1.4 introduced the ability to visualize large, complex data stored in Hadoop with Hortonworks Data Platform via Hive and the Hortonworks Hive ODBC driver.

If you want to get hands on with Tableau as quickly as possible, we recommend using the Hortonworks Sandbox and the ‘Visualize Data with Tableau’ tutorial.…

For the last couple months, Hortonworks has been excited to be a proud sponsor of the Big Analytics 2012 roadshow.  These roadshows have provided us some great insights into the role of Apache Hadoop in this emerging Big Data market.  We had some great discussions with attendees regarding their current and future plans for the use of Hadoop and other Big Data technologies. Another interesting insight was the need for Data skills, people who know what to ask of that data and how to use tools like Hadoop to provide patterns, answers, interpretations and present the data.…
