Continuing our ecosystem momentum for the next generation of SQL in Hadoop, here to share his insights with us on the potential that Stinger.next holds for both the individual data worker as well as the data driven company alike is Dustin Smith, Product Marketing Manager at Tableau Software.

The work delivered over the last year as part of Stinger has made a tremendous impact for our customers who are using Tableau to analyze Hadoop data, and we are excited to see this momentum continue under the leadership of Hortonworks within the Apache Hive community. …

In case you missed it — earlier this week, Alan Gates and team provided some insights into Stinger.next roadmap around the delivery of Enterprise SQL and Hadoop Scale. We’re excited to continue the conversation and include some of our key partners around their excitement on this important initiative.

I can’t believe it’s been 6 months since we first announced for expanded strategic alliance with Red Hat. For those that have been following this partnership, you know our goal is simple — to help organizations adopt enterprise Apache Hadoop as part of their modern data architecture. Our expanded relationship with Red Hat is closely aligned around a strategy of innovating in the open and applying enterprise rigor to open source software, thereby de-risking it for the enterprise, and allowing faster adoption for Enterprise Apache Hadoop.…

With the release of Apache Hadoop YARN in October of last year, more and more solution providers are moving from single-application Hadoop clusters to a versatile, integrated Hadoop 2 data platform. This allows them to host multiple applications — eliminating silos, maximizing resources and bringing true multi-workload capabilities to Hadoop. 

That is why we’re  extremely excited to have Paul Kent, Vice President of Big Data at SAS, share his insights on the value of Apache Hadoop YARN and the benefits it brings to SAS and its users. …
