This past Thursday, Hortonworks announced financial results for the first quarter of 2017. As always, our CEO Rob Bearden began the call by thanking our customers.
Rob began his industry and use case examples by describing the DataWorks Summit in Germany, which featured presentations from the thought leaders of large European enterprises that are transforming their businesses with connected data platforms. These included: Worldpay, ING, Danske Bank, Centrica, Munich Re and Société Générale.
Later in the call, Rob chose to give a bit more detail on 5 of our more than 1,000 subscription customers, because they serve as specific examples of the many ways that Hortonworks connected data platforms help our customers be first.
CSL Behring, a leading biopharmaceutical company, is using HDP to synchronize data between their enterprise resource planning (“ERP”) and manufacturing execution systems (“MES”) systems to give their data scientists a single view of data, and will soon be leveraging HDF for streaming analytics aimed at optimizing plasma production globally.
PerkinElmer is a global technology leader building a next generation data platform in the cloud. It is building this platform on HDF and HDP, which will help its customers optimize real-time data analysis and bring drugs to market faster.
Inovalon is a leading technology company providing advanced, cloud-based platforms empowering the value-based, data-driven transformation of the healthcare industry. It uses HDP to implement its data lake, which is a key component of its analytics and data-driven platforms.
DNV GL in Norway provides advisory and certification services to clients primarily in the maritime, oil & gas and energy industries. The company used Hortonworks solutions in its development of Veracity, an industry data platform designed to help companies improve data quality and manage the ownership, security, sharing and use of data.
Norfolk Southern is planning to use HDP for big data analytics use cases.
Thank you, Hortonworks customers, for a strong start to your year, and to ours!
