Hadoop Ecosystem

Industry news, partner stories, buzz and happenings

We are living in a hyper connected world. Digitization has lead to massive improvements in human productivity and enabled us to find solutions that would otherwise be simply impossible. Spurring digitization has been a perfect confluence of network, compute and analytics. Thanks to cloud computing, individuals and enterprises of any scale can continuously collect & process data using dynamic compute resources. Advanced scale out analytics has enabled enterprises to derive insight and operationalize them for improved outcomes.…

Have you ever wondered how to share content infrastructure that transparently synchronizes information with your existing systems? Are you looking for ways to build an open standards-based platform for deep analysis and data monetization? If so, you will want to join our webinar on Wednesday, January 21st, at 10 AM PT.

Our Big Data experts will teach you how to:

  • Leverage 100% of your data, including text, images, audio, video, and many more data types to be automatically consumed and enriched using HP Haven and Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP).
  • Cindy Maike, GM, Insurance at Hortonworks

    Financial services and the insurance industry are projected by many research organizations to benefit significantly from the usage of new information and advanced analytics by blending new data sources. As an industry, insurance depends on data; however, we have always had to struggle with it and now, we have an explosion of new data available.

    The key is to determine what new information is important to your business strategy and what new questions it can provide insights for, and weave that into existing data sources.…

    Our SI partner Ingenious Qube worked with a customer who wanted to price auto insurance based on driving behavior insights obtained from sensors on cars using Hortonworks Data Platform. Rajnish Goswami, CEO of Ingenious Qube, describes the customer story below.

    The Situation

    Insurance companies around the world strive to provide lower insurance rates, and auto insurance is no exception to this phenomenon. The automobile insurance companies are devising ways to derive innovative pricing models that will help customers reduce their insurance premiums; however, it requires an understanding of how one drives their vehicle.…

    This guest blog post is from Srikanth Venkat, director of product management at Dataguise, a Hortonworks security partner.

    Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose As Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr noted “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” Often, that’s not what we hear when looking at Hadoop security: people tend to call out how different Hadoop is, and how different its security solutions need to be.…

    Hortonworks introduces HDP Operations Ready, HDP Security Ready and HDP Governance Ready certifications to showcase solutions that deeply integrate with enterprise Hadoop.

    Customer adoption of Apache Hadoop continues to accelerate the pace at which the community works to meet the requirements of Enterprise Hadoop. Once the place of HDFS and MapReduce only, the introduction of Apache Hadoop YARN a little over a year ago has unleashed many new ways to get value from a Hadoop cluster.…

    As more organizations consider the cloud as a component of their Apache Hadoop deployments, we can look to our partners for a range of solutions designed to meet these needs. This is the first post in a series on partner solutions available for deploying Hadoop in the cloud. We will build on the Hybrid deployment post with general use cases for Hadoop in a Hybrid cloud. Through our partners we have broad set of options for the cloud available today spanning on-premises, virtual and cloud-based deployments.…

    Data platforms within Enterprises are in midst of a generational shift. After successful reliance on databases for decades, leading organizations today are complementing their data platforms to create a Modern Data Architecture (MDA) with Apache Hadoop in a Data Lake environment. Hadoop with its scale out and schema free architecture enables organizations to store and analyze all its structured and unstructured data in a single consolidated data environment. A key partner in the Hadoop journey has been the complementary infrastructure of server, storage and networking.…

    I’m incredibly excited to announce the launch of a combined HP Vertica – Hortonworks Sandbox. Available now, you can download this new, combined Sandbox for free from the HP Vertica Marketplace. All you need to do is signup for a free account.

    Once you have an account setup, you can easily navigate to the Hadoop Icon on the left hand side of the page and click through to the Hortonworks Icon.…

    The successful Hadoop journey typically starts with new analytic applications, which lead to a Data Lake. As more and more applications are created that derive value from the new types of data, an architectural shift happens in the data center: companies gain deeper insight across a large, broad, diverse set of data at efficient scale. They create a Data Lake.

    Cisco and Hortonworks have partnered to build a highly efficient, highly scalable way to manage all your enterprise data in a data lake.…

    Hortonworks is pleased to be part of the “going green” movement and even more pleased to introduce guest bloggers from Actian and Slingshot Power. In this blog, Slingshot Power describes their use case on how Hadoop and analytics can influence and increase the adoption of clean energy use.

    By Ashish Gupta, CMO & SVP Business Development, Actian

    Recently, we announced with Slingshot Power their use of Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) and the Actian Analytics Platform – Hadoop SQL Edition.…

    Big data continues to dominate the discussion as businesses both big and small seek to make sense of what exactly it is, and more importantly, what they should do about it. The three biggest challenges associated with big data investments include determining how to get value from data, defining the big data strategy, and obtaining the skills and capabilities needed to make sense of it in a meaningful way.

    Increasingly, companies around the world are adopting Apache Hadoop as a core component of their Modern Data Architecture (MDA) in order to collect, store, analyze and manipulate massive quantities of data on their own terms—regardless of the source of that data, how old it is, where it is stored, or under what format. Once they build their Modern Data Architecture, what is the best way for them to manage and monitor their Hadoop clusters?…

    News of customer data breaches seems to hit the headlines every week and we know that attackers have become more sophisticated in their tactics. Organizations too must step up their capabilities and build robust, data-driven defense systems. Join us for a webinar on Nov. 12 to learn about the current threats against enterprises like yours, and how a Modern Data Architecture (MDA) with Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) and Sqrrl Enterprise can enable intuitive exploration, discovery and pattern recognition over your big cyberdata.…

    In part 1, Kenneth Peeples, JBoss technology evangelist and principal marketing manager for Data Virtualization and Fuse Service Works at Red Hat, gave us an overview of the Red Hat and Hortonworks webinar series and offered insights into JBoss Data Virtualization and HDP. He started with an overview of data virtualization with the Hortonworks Data Platform and went over the first use case, Sentiment and Sales Analysis. Today, he describes the three other use cases.…
