He loves me, he loves me not… using daisies to figure out someone’s feelings is so last century. A much better way to determine whether someone likes you, your product or your company is to do some analysis on Twitter feeds to get better data on what the public is saying. But how do you take thousands of tweets and process them?  We show you how in our video – Understand your customers’ sentiments with Social Media Data – that you can capture a Twitter stream to do Sentiment Analysis.…

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.…

As summer comes to a close, we bid a fond farewell (again!) to our excellent marketing intern, Tanya Maslyanko. Tanya has been a terrific help to us with her can-do attitude and marketing intuition so the tears we shed are because we’ll miss our friend and because we’ll have to start doing our own work again. Over to Tanya…

A few years ago, I sat in a freshman-filled auditorium at my university’s orientation listening to successful graduates talk about how important it was to get involved with your career early on.…

There are myriad of use cases for Big Data applications across industries.

I’d like to share some thoughts on the recent news that Eric Baldeschwieler has decided to leave Hortonworks. I’d like to start off first by thanking Eric for his contributions to the Hadoop community since its inception over 7 years ago, and I’d like to express my personal appreciation for his help in getting Hortonworks off the ground.

It’s hard to believe it’s been over two years since Hortonworks was founded by over 20 engineers from the original Yahoo!…

    Almost time to spend a relaxing weekend in the garden, or crushing some data in your garage-based homebrew Hadoop cluster – whichever you prefer. But before we choose our path, let’s take a look at the last two weeks of happenings (I was lost in Oregon last week).

    PORTLAND – The Rose city is a great place and this week it got even more interesting with the OpenStack Summit in town.
