Next week we’ll be celebrating Customer Experience Day!
October 2nd marks the 6th annual CX Day, which “celebrates the professionals and companies that make great customer experiences happen. It’s an opportunity to recognize great customer work, discover professional development opportunities, and strengthen professional networks.” (CXDay.org)
Hortonworks has seen tremendous growth other the years, since its founding 7 years ago. The company has evolved from the leading Hadoop provider to now become the leading global data management platform company. However, we wouldn’t be here without our customers.
Today we count over 1,400 different customers across every industry. These are leaders and innovators, using complex technical solutions to manage data across the entire life cycle. These solutions solve mission critical challenges to achieve transformative business value.
“What we found was that we were spending more of our time just maintaining the stack together. Going with Hortonworks has taken some of that work that we’d been doing, from a day-to-day operations and basic capability area, knocking our costs down by 20%.” -Leo Garciga, Chief Technology Officer
“We’re convinced Hortonworks is a great option, especially in providing a proven infrastructure for both data at rest and data in motion.” -Fernando Lopez, Business Analytics – Big Data
“There are things that we are able to do with Hortonworks that I cannot imagine how we would do without a big data platform. The business value has been exemplary because we’re able to get in a ton of data from disparate sources.” -Conrad Fernandes, Information Security Engineer
It is clear that big achievements have happened, and the future is even brighter as our customers continue to spark innovation in their industries.
“You put all the pieces in one framework, one umbrella, I think the opportunities are unlimited. We are very serious about it and we truly believe that Hortonworks will help us achieve our end goal.” -Sudhir Menon, VP, Information Management Group
“We feel good about Hortonworks because of the association with the Open Source community. We think there are a tremendous set of opportunities, making the transition to the cloud more effective for us.” – Dennis Tally, Director, Single Family Data Governance
“From the beginning, Hortonworks has worked with us to come up with the most innovative enterprise-grade data governance as a first-class citizen in our process, end-to-end. We see our partnership consistently growing in the future.” -Chris Wojdak, Senior Program Managing Architect
Join us next week in celebrating the achievements of our customers, and the incredible work they continue to do with a modern data architecture!
