The Hortonworks Blog

Our guest blogger is Bob Taylor, Alliances Director at Concurrent, a Hortonworks Technology Partner. In this blog, Bob describes three factors that helped in the success of HomeAway in their big data initiative and are applicable to all projects. HomeAway is a customer of Hortonworks and Concurrent. HomeAway is a great example of an organization that […]

Earning the prestigious Teradata EPIC award is no easy feat. Partners who would like to have a shot at winning the top recognition need to demonstrate how their solution provides a unified, high-performance big data analytics system for an enterprise and show measurable return on investment. After receiving Teradata’s EPIC award recognition for Big Data […]

Apache Spark’s momentum continues to grow and throughout 2015 we saw customers across all industries get real value from using it with the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). Examples include: Insurance Optimize their claims reimbursements process by using Spark’s machine learning capabilities to process and analyze all claims. Healthcare Build a Patient Care System using Spark […]

When you count on your Hadoop environment to power business-critical applications, you can’t afford to let problems get in the way of performance. By getting ahead of issues before they lead to cluster degradation or downtime, you can deliver the Big Data insights your business relies on with the speed and reliability competitive markets demand. […]

This post was co-authored by Eric Thorsen, Hortonworks GM for CPG and Retail, and Jeff Seibert, Analytics Strategist at Blue Granite. More and more, consumers interact with their retailers through mobile devices. Because communication is easier, consumers tend to assume that customer service is similarly responsive. And so, they are more likely to become frustrated and […]

We are very excited to announce that Grant Bodley will speak about Big Data, the Internet of Anything (IoAT) and the Connected Car at this year’s West Coast Automotive Data Event on Wednesday October 27th in San Diego. Telematics West Coast is the premier event that explores and develops new ideas and business practices opening up […]

We are excited to announce that Arun Murthy will be one of the keynote speakers and will be talking about how to simplify Data Science with Spark and Hadoop next week at the Spark Summit Europe 2015 next week in Amsterdam. Spark Summit is the premier event that brings the Apache Spark community together. This will be the […]

Hackathons, Hackfest, and Codefests have an initial air of invincibility. They challenge participants, even veterans—not if the attendees work together or if the community collaborates and innovates together. That air of invincibility quickly dissipates. Last Saturday, because of such camaraderie and collaboration, a harmony of innovative ideas flourished and came to fruition at an Ambari […]

Geospatial data is pervasive—in mobile devices, sensors, logs, and wearables. This data’s spatial context is an important variable in many predictive analytics applications. To benefit from spatial context in a predictive analytics application, we need to be able to parse geospatial datasets at scale, join them with target datasets that contain point in space information, […]

Is a Lake Big Enough to House Your Ocean of Data? Contrary to popular belief, Hadoop was not the elephant-in-the-china-shop that marauded and disrupted the data center. The real culprit is data and how it has exploded in volume. The past two or three years have seen a rise in the number of successful Hadoop […]

The banking and financial services industries are very data-centric as every interaction that a client or partner system has with a banking institution produces actionable data that has potential business value associated with it. Big Data technology (led by Hadoop) is changing the landscape in areas as diverse as Risk Management, AML Compliance, Fraud Detection, […]

Our guest blogger today is Rob Rosen, Senior Director Partner Solutions at Platfora, describes how to help customers achieve strategic advantage through data discovery. While many people have heard the notion of “known unknowns” and “unknown unknowns,” it may surprise you to discover that the concept was first popularized by a NASA scientist. In a presentation […]

The advent of connected manufacturing has ushered in an era where low-cost machine sensors take thousands of measurements per second at many points across the manufacturing process. This stream of sensor data enables manufacturers to quickly detect emerging anomalies and solve issues before they impact yield and quality. Big Data insights enable predictive analytics for […]

Recent innovations in the Internet-enabled Connected Cars that we drive today have spawned a whole new set of opportunities and challenges for carmakers. The opportunities come from the ability to capture detailed, current data on how drivers actually operate their cars and how those cars respond to that use. Register for the October 22 Webinar […]

I recently had the pleasure of visiting with Arvind Battula, Sr. Data Scientist at Schlumberger. We discussed his background as a chemical and mechanical engineer and his move onto the Data and Analytics team as a data scientist. The following is a transcript of my conversation with Arvind. We discussed his background, his interesting focus areas for […]
