One of a company’s main measures of success is through its customers. Nothing is more rewarding for us than learning about how data analytics experts are implementing a data-driven strategy. I spoke with a handful of our customers across Government, retail, telecommunications and automotive organizations to find out how things were going and what lessons they […]

Cindy Maike, our General Manager for Insurance, visited our London office recently and we managed to find time between her customer meetings to discuss the role and impact of machine learning. While Cindy is obviously focused on the insurance sector, this summary provides solid insight for anyone considering how to manage the technological and cultural […]

We opened our Budapest office back in April 2014 and since then, we’ve had new Hortonworkers join every month.  Home to our Cloudbreak, Ambari and Sustaining engineering teams, we have 43 people based in the office with more scheduled to join early 2017.  Over the last week, I’ve been fortunate to spend time with various […]

In our final video of the ‘5 Minutes with….’ series with Eric Thorsen, VP of industry solutions, following his recent trip to our London office, he explores the different trends emerging by industry organisations in each embark on the shift to being a data-driven business. Within Hortonworks, we have a focus on seven industries led […]

How many retail loyalty cards do you have?  Personally, I’ve only been loyal to one programme consistently over the past 10+ years (Boots Advantage Card, fantastic points system!) while the ‘new kids on the block’ in my purse include Waitrose and John Lewis but beyond that… well, I either lose or forget about them.  I […]

Last week, Eric Thorsen, our vice president for industry solutions, visited Europe to meet with customers and we managed to get some time with him to talk specifically about trends we are seeing in the retail sector as part of our ‘Five Minutes with….’ video series. As we hit the ramp up the busy shopping […]

While we are out in Tokyo for the Hadoop Summit (#HS16Tokyo) this week, the Irish contingent of the Hortonworks’ international team also has had great cause for celebration – the official opening of our new office in Cork on Wednesday! At 12,499 square feet and a maximum capacity for 83 Hortonworkers (+ one regular guest, […]

Given my role, and as I’ve outlined in my previous blog, the role of big data in marketing is a topic I’m particularly interested in. Recently, I hosted a webinar with Luca Olivari, chief data officer at Contactlab and it reignited my interest in how my fellow marketing peers are – or are not – […]

I cannot believe we are less than one week out for Hadoop Summit Melbourne! Following on from our first guest blog from Rikki-Lee Brandon, she’s been kind enough to pull together as list of her top restaurant and bar spots in the City. If you visit any of these recommendations during Hadoop Summit week, please […]

Needless to say, partners are a crucial part of the Hadoop community and that’s evidenced by the number of organisations Hortonworks is connected with as part of our PartnerWorks Programme.  Back in October 2011, we announced our partnership with Microsoft to collaborate on a Hadoop distribution for Microsoft Azure and Windows Server.  Since that announcement, […]

Financial Services is arguably one of the most complex industry sectors in terms of customers, services and regulation. While there are obviously areas of overlap, the contrast between capital markets to private banking, retail banking to corporate banking and lending, or hedge funds to credit cards and payment networks is considerable. Last week, our general […]

With only three weeks to go until Hadoop Summit Melbourne, anticipation is building for what looks set to be a fantastic event for the Hadoop community.   Whether it’s pre-event training, our keynotes, sponsor sessions or the 3-4 business or technical sessions you have to choose from every hour, your agenda is undoubtedly going to be […]

Earlier today, we announced that Open Energi has tripled its investment in data analytics by adding Hortonworks DataFlow to its existing use of Hortonworks Data Platform to manage its data in motion. Open Energi is at the forefront of smart grids and the Internet of Things in the UK. Put simply, it allows its customers’ […]

I was out visiting our HQ in Santa Clara for the first time last week. My main reason for visiting was to spend time with our industry team to better understand the specific motivations and experiences with customers in different vertical sectors. As I’m getting back into London life, I’ve been reflecting on things I […]

June has got off to a great start – and not only because it seems like summer has arrived in London!  Yesterday, our team gathered in our International HQ a stone’s throw from Liverpool Street Station for a session with Mike Schiebel, our cyber security strategist, who is visiting from the west coast.  We have […]
