I am pleased to report that Hortonworks has been named a leader in the recently released Forrester Wave report on Enterprise Hadoop Solutions. We scored well across all three rating areas: current offering, market presence and strategy.
We appreciate the recognition, particularly this sentence that highlighted our role in the marketplace: “(Hortonworks) is the technology leader and ecosystem building for the entire Hadoop industry and has recently released its Hortonworks Data Platform, which incorporates purely open-source Apache Hadoop software.”
Being named a Leader in the Forrester Wave on Enterprise Hadoop Solutions is one of many achievements for Hortonworks over the past seven months (stay tuned for a blog on this topic). While we proud of our past, we are much more focused on our future. We know that we must continue to drive innovation and work with the community to deliver high-quality Apache Hadoop releases. It’s important that the Apache Hadoop core remains strong in order to avoid forking. A strong code base, rapid innovation and a vibrant ecosystem will ensure Apache Hadoop remains unified and well positioned to become the foundation for the next generation data platform. This has always been our focus and we appreciate Forrester’s recognition for this commitment.
