The Hortonworks Blog

Apache Hadoop has emerged as a rising star in open source technology since it not only disrupts the economics of big data and analytics, it also empowers enterprises to solve many of the growing problems associated with managing massive datasets.

The IoAT and Big Data means big business It is now common knowledge that the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the data it brings can offer valuable business insights for the vast majority of industries. However, data analytics and the IoT are continuing to develop at an accelerated pace and, from this […]

To compete in the age of IoAT, organizations are tapping into data sources from a network of physical objects to design new customer experiences. The companies that are furthest along are removing operational inefficiencies from their internal processes. They are using self learning algorithms and dynamic model deployment for predictive maintenance to accelerate success in […]

The Data Tipping Point

We all hear about how much has changed in the world of data and analytics over the last decade. All of this is driven by the explosion of data… and I don’t think we’ve seen anything yet. The real impact of Internet of All Things (IOaT) will be bigger than anything we’ve seen, and it’s […]

The series will discuss the reasons for Healthcare’s surging interest in, and rapid adoption of, Hadoop. We’ve all heard a lot lately about Hadoop, especially within the Healthcare industry. Well, this is really important stuff! Healthcare represents the […]

As all of us know, the advent of big data has revolutionized analytics and data science allowing enterprises to store, access and analyze vast amounts of historical data.  But existing data platforms need to evolve to deal with the tsunami of data-in-motion being generated by the Internet of Anything (IoAT). We need a fresh approach to maximize […]

Today our guest blogger is Keith Manthey, CTO from EMC. As part of my job, I regularly meet with clients around their Apache Hadoop journey. I often meet executives after they have encountered a catalytic event. In one particular meeting I vividly remember, the client had suffered over 24 hours of downtime on their Hadoop […]

The world’s data now doubles in volume every two years.  We’re living in an Age of Data fed by the Internet of Anything. Life in the Age of Data is always-on and always-connected with easy access to incredibly rich sources of analyzed information coming from the Internet, mobile devices, servers, machines, sensors, and so on. […]

During 2015, the pace of adoption of the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) continued to accelerate. Both existing and new customers brought massive amounts of data under management using Apache Hadoop technologies. I found it really interesting that new requirements being discussed by our customers showed much less consistency than previous years. In particular, we heard […]
