For Hortonworks, working with and enabling the Hadoop ecosystem is one of our core tenants, and we’re proud of the 1,100+ partners that have joined us in the journey to ensure that Open Enterprise Hadoop interoperates with your existing data center technologies. Today, we’re delighted that we have been named to The Channel Company’s exclusive 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List. The annual list features technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create solutions for customers. The Channel Company recognizes Hortonworks’ demonstrated commitment to developing new technologies that meet growing market demands.
Community initiatives rally Hadoop users, developers and vendors toward common objectives to deliver innovation. Our most recent contributions are showcased in the recent release of the Hortonworks Data Platform 2.3. Our work around the Data Governance initiative is particularly exemplary of the way we drive innovation—in the open, with our ecosystem that includes technology partners and customers. Our philosophy and work around enabling our partners has been acknowledged and validated by our partners: last week we were awarded the US EPG Cloud Partner of the Year from Microsoft, wining the Teradata EPIC awards in both 2013 and 2014 and being named 2014 Partner of the Year from HP AllianceOne.
We are honored with this recognition from The Channel Company and we are excited about the growth and success with our partners to drive the Hadoop ecosystem forward.
