Last Friday, I wrote about how TMW Systems leverages Hortonworks to crack the last mile problem. TMW, the leading transportation technology provider, consolidates the data of their carrier customers to deliver fresh analytical insights to these small carriers, thereby giving them the legs to walk the last mile. TMW’s use case also highlights the importance […]

In many industries, the last mile problem is the most difficult problem to crack. This is especially true in the carrier industry, where 91% of the total carriers operate fleets of six vehicles or less. TMW Systems (TMW) solves the last mile problem, and an array of other transportation and business challenges, by consolidating the […]

As we announced a few weeks ago, well over half of the Fortune 100 companies, and over one quarter of the Fortune Global 500 companies, leverage Hortonworks’ open source data platforms, HDP and HDF. Open source has won. What these top companies recognize is that open source is an opportunity to develop and implement data […]

Last week I wrote about our sustained growth, and why over half of the Fortune 100 US companies, and over one quarter of the Global 100 companies, trust Hortonworks. The top retailers, financial services, automotive manufacturers, and beyond all embrace Big Data, and most with the help of Hortonworks Connected Data Platforms. What these top […]

Did you hear our earnings announcement on Thursday? The herd is on the move! It was an outstanding Quarter that’s generating all kinds of buzz. My job at Hortonworks is to tell our customer’s stories. How companies of all sizes, and from all industries, went big with Big Data and transformed their enterprises. How innovators […]

Last week I wrote about how Big Data is transforming the oil & gas industry. This week I want to touch on the healthcare industry. This is yet another front in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which is transforming our lives in ways Dr. Quinn never could. Consider some of the ways the healthcare industry is […]

Last Saturday, the Financial Times published an article titled, “BP looks to big data to help weather weak oil price” which explained why BP is expanding their data storage from one petabyte to six petabytes. It almost seems counter-intuitive, especially in an age of increased competition and renewable energies. Yet BP, along with the rest […]

Famed businessman John Wanamaker once remarked, “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don’t know which half.” The digital advertising industry is rapidly evolving. Hortonworks customers are leveraging their structured and unstructured data to generate real insights into their customers and their customer’s behavior. From trends, to patterns, to […]

On Tuesday I blogged about Pinsight Media’s DataWorks Summit keynote. Pinsight leverages Hortonworks to ingest over 60 terabytes of data coming from 65 million devices across multiple mobile network operators. This network-level data provides right-time advertising to consumers. What’s most interesting about Pinsight’s use case is that the data is not their own, yet they […]

Last month at our DataWorks Summit in San Jose, the CEO of Pinsight Media (Pinsight) presented The 8 Second Data Rule. Pinsight is the mobile data company that uses verified, network-level data to fuel intelligent brand decisions. Its data management platform ingests over 60 terabytes of data coming from 65 million devices across multiple mobile network […]

On Wednesday I posted a keynote from Day 1 of our DataWorks Summit, on how a healthcare organization is using Big Data and Hortonworks to deliver precision medicine to its patients. Day 2 of the Summit was equally as engaging and informative. Tim Leonard, EVP of Operations and CTO of TMW Systems, a Trimble company, […]

Last month, at our DataWorks Summit in San Jose, we were treated to a host of keynote speakers from a variety of industries, all leveraging the power of Big Data and Hortonworks to usher in groundbreaking, and even life-saving, transformation to their respective industries. One of the speakers was Dr. Wade Schulz, Resident Physician and […]

Tuesday night I had the opportunity to visit Hacker Lab, where the Sacramento Women in Data Science hosted Dr. Ian Brooks, one of our super-talented Solutions Engineers. SWDS has over 500 members and regularly hosts data science events to help grow the data science and analytics community for, but not exclusive to, women. Groups such as […]

We’ve just published our most recent customer case study! This one comes from straight from Japan and is emblematic of the trend towards connected data architectures throughout the North Asian region, and Hortonworks’ continued growth in the same. Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (Mitsubishi Fuso) is a leading manufacturer of trucks, buses, and industrial […]
