153 Years of Mission-Critical Data: Why DNV GL Turned to Hortonworks

DNV GL has an impressive 153 years of history, dating back to 1864 when the company inspected and evaluated Norwegian merchant vessels. Fast-forward to today, DNV GL now operates in over 100 countries and provides services for several industries including maritime, renewable energy, oil & gas, electrification, food & beverage, and healthcare.

According to Rene Castberg, Senior Research at DNV GL, “Data has always been important for our company in DNV GL, [it’s] something we’ve relied on, so from the earliest beginning…nowadays we are moving over to newer technology, [such as] digital sensors…”

DNV GL manages structured, sensor, and image data and produces batch and AI/Deep Learning analysis. The company uses Hortonworks both in the data center and in the cloud. Through using Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP®), DNV GL has developed Veracity, an industry data platform designed to help companies improve data quality and manage the ownership, security, sharing, and use of data. This platform would not have been possible without Apache™ Hadoop® and Hortonworks.
