Going Big and Open in Budapest

Hortonworks is a huge supporter of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) and fully embrace the processes and procedures through the only 100% open source Hadoop platform HDP. As Forrester VP Mike Gualtieri said in the Forrester Wave “Hortonworks lives and loves open source.” And that will be fully on display at the inaugural at Apache: Big Data Europe 2015 event this year in Budapest, Hungary.


The event will be held 28-30 September at the Corinthia Hotel and Hortonworks will be contributing in a big way as a Diamond Sponsor.

During the event there are many ways you can hear about how we are working with the community to enable new Big Data use cases and new workloads through keynotes and scheduled talks. We are covering a broad range of technologies through 15 different talks during the conference. Some of our best and brightest engineering minds will be there and available to talk. Stop by our booth # 2 at the conference to learn more about how we work with the community and customers.

One of the highlights will be the keynote given by Hortonworks co-founder and Architect Arun Murthy. Arun’s talk is titled “Apache’s Key role in the Big Data Industry” and will be on 28 Sept at 9:40am in the Grand Ballroom. Don’t miss this talk from an Apache Hadoop luminary.

Additionally Arun will participate in a keynote panel session on the Open Data Platform (ODP) initiative. The panel titled ODP: Advancing Open Data for the Enterprise will take place on Tuesday morning. This is a great way to understand the complimentary role the ODP plays with the Apache ecosystem.
