We know the saying, “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas,” but we can’t keep this all to ourselves. We’re super excited to be among 12 of HP AllianceOne Partners to receive the HP Partner of the Year award at HP Discover 2014.
The HP AllianceOne Award for ConvergedSystems recognizes Hortonworks for its strategic relationship and reseller agreement for the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) and for delivering solutions that drive meaningful business for our shared customers.
“Congratulations to Hortonworks on its HP AllianceOne Partner of the Year Award for HP ConvergedSystems,” said Doug Oathout, vice president, Global Marketing, SMB and Alliances, Enterprise Marketing, HP. “Hortonworks has demonstrated outstanding dedication and expertise in addressing the business and technology needs of its customers by helping them process multiple data streams and build complex applications to meet their business’ go-to-market strategies.”
This award is a great reinforcement to the momentum of last week’s Hadoop Summit further proving Hadoop is a core component of the modern data architecture and the adoption and acceleration of Hadoop is real.
We’re seeing similar momentum at HP Discover. Big Data and HAVEn seem to be on top of people’s minds. Being the only Hadoop partner at this show, we’re able to participate in conversations with attendees on how HDP is a key component of HP’s big data platform, HAVEn. Our joint solutions enable customers to deploy a modern data architecture built on Hadoop, powering new applications and supporting existing ones with additional data. By combining HP technologies and HDP, organizations can quickly explore and analyze vast amounts of multi-structured data including machine generated, web, social and geospatial.
The Hadoop momentum carried on throughout the exhibit hall and into sessions. Attendees were able to participate and learn all the amazing things HP is doing in the Big Data space in the HP Big Data/HAVEn pavilion. They also took part in the discussion around HP HAVEn and a Hadoop with our very own Mitch Ferguson.
We’re really excited on the growth and deepening of our alliance. It’s nice to be validated with the HP Partner of the Year Award. We also want to congratulate the other 11 winners as well. Thanks HP; we’re excited for more of what’s to come from our partnership and joint technologies.
