This week we made a huge step forward in accelerating genomics-based precision medicine in research and clinical care, starting a consortium of experts and organizations who will help to define the next generation of genomics research. We’ve already been joined by Arizona State University, Baylor College of Medicine, Booz Allen Hamilton, Mayo Clinic, OneOme and […]

On the tree of automotive evolution, the modern car is a closer cousin to the computer than classic clunker. That’s the influence of tech at work — and the consumer’s appetite for it. It’s caused OEMs to prioritize infotainment and connectivity instead of just horsepower and MPGs. That shift has resulted in the expectation that […]

According to Gartner Research, by 2020 the total number of connected cars will be nine times more than that of 2015. Additionally, 80% of all new vehicles will have data connectivity, 30% of connected-vehicles will have built-in, over-the-air software capabilities, and over one billion connected automotive subsystems will be shipped. With the exponential growth of […]

The world’s top authorities on Apache Hadoop convene at Hadoop Summit San Jose and one of the top questions that will be answered will be around the future and direction of Hadoop. Sanjay Radia – Founder and Architect, Hortonworks lead the track which selected 13 sessions around this topic. I asked Sanjay what he hoped would […]

I’m just reaching the end of my first month at Hortonworks based in our London office.  Most of that time has been spent with our customers understanding their use cases, reading about trends and developments in data analytics or watching videos about everything from connected data platforms to modern data apps to the bits and bytes […]

In the era of consumer-centric “agile” supply chain strategies, manufacturers are forced to act more like retailers in terms of how they capture, analyze and use consumer data. This gives visibility to internal and external supply chain partners on how products are made, sold and used. But that visibility demands more data from more points across […]

This post was co-authored by Eric Thorsen, Hortonworks GM for CPG and Retail, and Jeff Seibert, Analytics Strategist at Blue Granite. More and more, consumers interact with their retailers through mobile devices. Because communication is easier, consumers tend to assume that customer service is similarly responsive. And so, they are more likely to become frustrated and […]

Telematics West Coast is the premier event that explores and develops new ideas and business practices opening up […]

Geospatial data is pervasive—in mobile devices, sensors, logs, and wearables. This data’s spatial context is an important variable in many predictive analytics applications. To benefit from spatial context in a predictive analytics application, we need to be able to parse geospatial datasets at scale, join them with target datasets that contain point in space information, […]

The advent of connected manufacturing has ushered in an era where low-cost machine sensors take thousands of measurements per second at many points across the manufacturing process. This stream of sensor data enables manufacturers to quickly detect emerging anomalies and solve issues before they impact yield and quality. Big Data insights enable predictive analytics for […]

Recent innovations in the Internet-enabled Connected Cars that we drive today have spawned a whole new set of opportunities and challenges for carmakers. The opportunities come from the ability to capture detailed, current data on how drivers actually operate their cars and how those cars respond to that use. Register for the October 22 Webinar […]
