The San Jose DataWorks Summit is this Tuesday! Have you registered? A few weeks ago, we announced Tim Leonard of TMW Systems would be presenting a Tuesday keynote, Commoditizing Your Data to Sell – A Transportation Example.

The critical business challenge for healthcare organizations is to effectively manage their data. Success means access to real-time market data, data visualization, and cost-saving opportunities.

My life as part of a high performance team Last week we released Hortonworks DataFlow HDF 2.0. It was a great 1 year anniversary present for me – a new release of the product I’ve been supporting since I joined Hortonworks a year ago. I’ve had the privilege of working with the most talented, quick-thinking, […]

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 […]

Hadoop just turned 10, the first code check-in was on Feb. 2, 2006 by our very own co-founder, Owen O’Malley. I am tremendously proud to have been a part of this first 10 years, and even more excited on where this open movement is going to take us. Congratulations to everyone in the Community! We […]

During 2015, the pace of adoption of the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) continued to accelerate. Both existing and new customers brought massive amounts of data under management using Apache Hadoop technologies. I found it really interesting that new requirements being discussed by our customers showed much less consistency than previous years. In particular, we heard […]

In September, Hortonworks partnered with ManTech and B23 to foster a vibrant open community to accelerate the development of OpenSOC. In December we additionally partnered with Rackspace Managed Security and submitted OpenSOC to the Apache Incubator as a podling under the name of Apache Metron. A decision to rename the project was made to represent […]

An interesting and atypical thing is happening in Healthcare. Leading data driven organizations are not simply looking to share their Hadoop experiences, successes, use cases, and best practices … but more than ever before, they are embracing the opportunity to share their experiences outside their organizations, in a style that resembles the open source community […]
