I’m thrilled to note that the Apache Hadoop community has declared Apache Hadoop 2.x as Generally Available with the release of hadoop-2.2.0!

This represents the realization of a massive effort by the entire Apache Hadoop community which started nearly 4 years to date, and we’re sure you’ll agree it’s cause for a big celebration. Equally, it’s a great credit to the Apache Software Foundation which provides an environment where contributors from various places and organizations can collaborate to achieve a goal which is as significant as Apache Hadoop v2.…

In March of 2013 we announced our plans to enter the European market and just six months we have not only landed but also are expanding and operating across Europe with field teams in UK, France and Germany.  Those teams are growing and, more importantly, our customer base is expanding.

What would expansion be without customers?

European customers are actively looking for solutions that enable the processing and analysis of large quantities of data, and Apache Hadoop is meeting those needs.  …

We are excited to announce that the call for abstracts for Hadoop Summit Europe 2014 (April 2-3, 2014) is now open and closes on October 31st. One of the new things for this year are updated tracks providing attendees with new options.  Last year was a wildly successful event  and we received a lot of feedback on how to make things better… and we listened.

Providing high value content is what the conference is all about and we received some great suggestions from the community on how to improve the sessions.   …

If you are an enterprise, chances are you use SAP.  And you are also more than likely using – or planning to use – Hadoop in your data architecture.

Today, we are delighted to announce the next step in our strategic relationship with SAP as they announce a reseller agreement with Hortonworks.  Under this agreement, SAP will resell Hortonworks Data Platform and provide enterprise support for their global customer base.  This will enable SAP customers to implement a data architecture that includes SAP HANA and the Hortonworks Data Platform and in so doing leverage existing skills to take advantage of the massive scalability and performance offered by Apache Hadoop.…

Hadoop jobs have grown 200,000%. No, that’s not a typo. According to Indeed.com, Hadoop is one of the top 10 job trends right now.

When you look at LinkedIn, the growth in profiles that have SQL in them is on the downswing — about -4%, but the growth of profiles that have Hadoop in them is up 37%. Hadoop is becoming a clear resume differentiator. Updating and maintaining technical skills has always been part of the job and is part of ensuring a long and healthy career.…

Airline pricing has always been a mystery to me, a combination of art and science allowing the airline to make as much money as possible on each flight while providing the customer the options and flexibility they want. Under the covers I know there are complex models the airlines use to determine how many seats have been sold and how much they can get for the remaining seats. I didn’t realize how seriously complex the models were but more importantly, the opportunity available to the travel industry to become more customer-centric while staying competitive by harnessing the data now available to them.…
