System Integrator & Consultant Partner Program

Hadoop consultants and systems-integrators are essential to the success of big data projects for the enterprise. Hortonworks supports our partners’ knowledge and skills to help our customers with their big data and Hadoop initiatives.

Hadoop enables new opportunities for Analytics and business intelligence, multi-use and multi-workload data processing with YARN, and new cost and time saving efficiencies for IT. In all these cases Hadoop consultants and integrators are essential to the success of big data projects for the enterprise. The Hadoop market opportunity is estimated to be in the Billions of dollars and the Big Data market is even larger; estimated by many analysts to quadruple by 2020. One Third of the market is estimated to be Services – the remainder is software and hardware.

The Hortonworks model is unlike any other: we are committed to open source, building enterprise rigor for Hadoop, and enabling the ecosystem through the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). We focus on support for HDP and building our partners’ knowledge and skills to help our customers with their big data and Hadoop initiatives.

Program Goals

Hortonworks’ overriding goal is to focus on the delivery of enterprise grade Hadoop as a reliable data platform that will enable our customer’s transition to a Modern Data Architecture. To this end, we view partners as crucial to educating and enabling clients to realize the diverse ways in which the Hortonworks Data Platform can help them to achieve their business objectives. From cost savings scenarios to business process optimization and new revenue generating use cases, partners play a crucial role in facilitating the discovery, solution development and the on-going operations of Hortonworks Data Platform implementations.
