Big Data was challenged from the day it was coined…it’s a problem looking for an answer. Likewise, data science presents an amazing opportunity to answer our biggest questions, but its fate has been tied to the breadth, quantity, freshness and speed of the data it relies upon. For years, these competing issues have been left […]

Simon Meredith, Chief Technology Officer – CSI, IBM Europe explains the significance of IBM & Hortonworks working together in the era of Big Data What is fuelling IBM’s commitment to Apache Hadoop and Spark? The pressures of day to day business are delaying companies doing more with their data. IBM’s commitment is to initiate, simplify […]

Destination Autonomous The march towards autonomous vehicles continues to accelerate. While expert opinion differs on the specific timing and use cases that will emerge first, few deny that self-driving cars are in our future. Not surprisingly, when reviewing Big Data strategies with my automotive clients, discussions on data management strategies for autonomous driving research inevitably […]

Apache Hadoop has always been associated with storing & processing vasts amount of data. But did you know it’s also an awesome engine to power interactive data exploration and visualization? With the development of Apache Hive LLAP (a recent innovation included in the Hortonworks Data Platform), you can use Hadoop with Business Intelligence tools (like […]

OPEN SOURCE HADOOP NOW RUNS ON AN OPEN COMPUTE PLATFORM The software market is undergoing a major transition, moving away from proprietary software that leads to customer lock-in. Open source software offers freedom, more flexibility, and faster innovation – all at a lower cost. With the release of HDP 2.6 now available on IBM Power Systems, […]

Let’s take a step back and look at some of the Hortonworks highlights from last year… IN THE ECOSYSTEM there was tremendous acceleration. At the beginning of […]

Bob Glithero Analytics Product Marketing Manager, Pivotal Over the last five years, mobile network operators (MNOs) realized 15% lower compound revenue growth on average than other types of communication service providers. With few exceptions, MNOs globally have seen a long-term decline in average revenue per user (ARPU). To reinvigorate growth, innovative MNOs are searching for […]

It’s no secret that there is a data explosion. A recent IDC analyst report from April 2014 indicated the volume of data, known as the digital universe, is doubling in size every two years. And by 2020, there will be as many digital bits as there are stars in the universe. There are many reasons […]

Guest author: Jeff Kelly, Data Strategist, Pivotal The phrase “digital transformation” gets bandied about a lot these days, but what exactly does it mean? When you strip away the hyperbole, I believe digital transformation is the process by which enterprises evolve from using traditional information technology to merely support existing business models to adopting modern […]

(In fact, there’s even confusion about the meaning of the term “hybrid” itself—this video helps clear it up: In the real world, of course, virtually every implementation is hybrid—no company puts 100% of its IT environment into one single cloud. […]

One the most enjoyable parts of my job is working with customers and partners who have innovated on the Hortonworks Connected Data Platform.  Companies like Servient. Here’s a great real example of a recent use case for a customer we worked together on in the energy vertical.  I’ve removed the actual name for obvious reasons. […]

Hadoop’s ability to work with Amazon S3 storage goes back to 2006 and the issue HADOOP-574, “FileSystem implementation for Amazon S3”. This filesystem client, “s3://” implemented an inode-style filesystem atop S3: it could support bigger files than S3 could then support, some its operations (directory rename and delete) were fast. The s3 filesystem allowed Hadoop […]
