Hadoop Insights

Having just returned from our Hadoop Summit Europe event, I was struck by the number of sessions that involved large scale businesses outlining the impact of their advanced analytic applications (built on Hadoop) and how those analytics are empowering better business decisions. The story of business value is significant. Session after session, representatives from various […]

Opportunity abounds According to the enterprise data usage experts at Appfluent, the typical Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) dedicates 70% of its storage volume to unused data and 55% of its processing capacity to low value ETL workloads. This represents a waste of what could otherwise be a high performance, finely tuned analytics and reporting environment […]

Hortonworks subscribers across all major industries use Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) to power advanced analytics applications for data discovery and predictive analytics. The insurance industry uses Hadoop to drive this type of innovation for usage-based insurance (UBI). Cindy Maike is the GM for Insurance Solutions at Hortonworks, and later this month she will present on […]

As we are finalizing our preparations for what will surely be another successful Hadoop Summit Europe event, one thing has become unequivocally clear: the Hadoop challenge is no longer about acceptance. It’s no longer about adoption. It’s about Hadoop being pervasive. Hadoop is everywhere. As Mike Gualtieri of Forrester wrote in a recent report: Hadoop […]

The factory of the future will merge the virtual world with the real world. Domhall Carroll, industry sector head of Siemens Ltd, made this point as he addressed the Engineers Ireland annual conference in May 2014. Carroll described prior industrial revolutions, leading up to today’s transformations that are creating a fourth industrial revolution, based on […]

Changes in technology and consumer expectations create new challenges for how retailers create a single view of their customers, predict consumer preferences and discover fine-grain detail to manage their supply chains. Of course, these have always been important goals for retailers, but it used to be easier to understand the market signals (because there were […]

Changes in technology and customer expectations create new challenges for how insurers engage their customers, manage risk information and control the rising frequency and severity of claims. Carriers need to rethink traditional models for customer engagement. Advances in technology and the adoption of retail engagement models drive fundamental changes in how customers shop for and […]

Hortonworks provides enterprise Hadoop for the telecommunications service provider, and Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) is architected from the ground up with the centralized YARN-based architecture and core enterprise services for data governance, security and cluster operations that can revolutionize your telecommunications business. As the originators of Hadoop, leaders in the developer community, and partners for […]

This is a unique moment in time. Fueled by open source, Apache Hadoop has become an essential part of the modern enterprise data architecture and the Hadoop market is accelerating at an amazing rate. The impressive thing about successful open source projects is the pace of the “release early, release often” development cycle, also known […]

Since our founding in 2011, Hortonworks has had a fundamental belief: the only way to deliver infrastructure platform technology is completely in open source. Moreover, we believe that collaborative open source software development under the governance model of an entity like the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) is the best way to accelerate innovation that targets […]

The Beginning of our Oil and Gas Journey Hortonworks began working with the Oil & Gas industry in November of 2013 and our involvement accelerated during a very busy 2014 campaign. Our momentum was set against a backdrop early in the year of milestones in drilling and production across unconventional shale plays in North America, […]

The public sector is charged with protecting citizens, responding to constituents, providing services and maintaining infrastructure. In many instances, the demands of these responsibilities increase while government resources simultaneously shrink under budget pressures. How can Intelligence, Defense and Civilian agencies do more with less? Apache Hadoop is part of the answer. Within the public sector, […]

Modern retailers collect data from a multitude of consumer engagement channels, including point of sale systems, the web, mobile applications, social media, and more. They hope to use this data to derive greater customer insights, promote increased brand engagement and loyalty, optimize pricing and promotions, streamline the supply chain, and enhance their business models. Data […]

Merv Adrian couldn’t have said it better. In his blog post from the weekend, he continued in his quest to define Hadoop. And it is no easy quest as the components of, and evolution of, Hadoop is happening at a pace that is, frankly, astounding. The continuous evolution of Hadoop has even given rise to […]

We certainly live in interesting times. About 20 months ago, in an effort to find proprietary differentiation that could be used to monetize and lock in customers to their model, Cloudera unveiled Impala and at that time Mike Olson stated “Our view is that, long-term, this will supplant Hive”. Only 6 months ago in his […]
