EY and Hortonworks Announce New Strategic Business Relationship

Today, Ernst & Young LLP announced today a strategic business relationship with Hortonworks, Inc.® to provide new data management offerings that leverage and extend Hortonworks Data Platform (HDPTM) together with EY’s data and information management services. EY has been building expertise and solutions around Hadoop to help data driven organizations leverage newly available data (structured and unstructured) to gain better insights and increase operational efficiency, improve profitability and reduce costs, ultimately with a goal to obtaining a competitive edge in the marketplace.

We are delighted that EY has chosen Hortonworks for this relationship that will utilize EY’s emerging technology enablement, analytics, and program management practices to deliver new offerings using HDP.  Leveraging Hadoop will help businesses create the right infrastructure to support their data analytics efforts and increase their ability of gaining a real time understanding of their business through big data.

The core of the relationship between EY and Hortonworks focuses on the vast number of organizations that are currently leveraging or plan to leverage Hadoop for their complex data storage needs and EY’s ability to help address key business and technological considerations such as:

    • The ability to store large volumes of unstructured data, enabling forward-looking and actionable intelligence (as evidenced by EY’s recently released warranty analytics solution)
    • Real-time collaboration and monitoring of information to drive faster response and performance (i.e., monitoring a patient’s vital signs in real-time in healthcare)
    • Enabling a 360-degree view of a customer that enables tailored offerings and service level agreements based on customer segmentation
    • Quickly mining data and converting them into insights to help clients in their efforts to increase revenue, decrease cost and drive the customer experience

We  welcome EY as a Platinum Level partner in the Hortonworks System Integrator program — the highest level possible in the program. They are in elite company as this program level is for global partners that invest significantly in their Hortonworks practice, meeting specific proactive sales, certification and specialization goals across multiple international theaters, providing the ability to support clients around the world.
