It’s been a few months since I joined the Hortonworks management team, and I thought it made sense to tell you a few things that led me to that decision. First let me just say clearly and unambiguously that I believe Hortonworks is among the most exciting and consequential new companies. I can also say […]

Syncsort and Hortonworks working together to drive the success of a modern EDW solution Enterprise Data Warehouse has become a standard component of the corporate data architecture. In the past 15 years, a variety of product offerings were introduced into the market on building EDWs, operational data stores, real-time Data Warehouses. The differences is the […]

A Faster Horse?

The interesting challenge that product managers and innovators grapple with everyday is balancing what customers are asking for with what customers actually need. As an example in the late 19th century, purely focusing on customer requirements might have led to trying to breed a faster, more healthy and longer living horse. Then came Henry Ford […]

Welcome back to my blog series, the CISO’s View.  We started with  CISO’s View: metrics part 1, looking at metrics and why they are the foundation of a successful security program. In CISO’s View: metrics part 2, we figured out how to create metrics that are tied to the company strategy and show the value […]

As we kick off the new year I wanted to thank our customers, partners, Apache community members, and of course the amazing Hortonworks team, for an amazing 2016. Let’s take a step back and look at some of the Hortonworks highlights from last year… IN THE ECOSYSTEM there was tremendous acceleration. At the beginning of […]

We just wrapped up our global customer roadshow.  Since early September, we’ve been live with customers and partners in 18 cities across five Continents, from Coast to Coast across the United States and as far away as Seoul, Sidney, Paris, London and Dubai. Over the course of the tour, more than 3,200 people have spent […]

I started my journey at Hortonworks a little over five years ago and have been to many Hadoop Summits in the US, Europe and now Asia.  I just kicked off a two day sold out show in Tokyo and shared my thoughts and stories on architectures and business transformation.    John Kreisa’s post here has […]

Last week we announced third quarter results, and it was a milestone quarter.   Customers in 60 countries chose Hortonworks to help with their on-premise, hybrid and public cloud data management strategies. A big thanks to the Hortonworks team. I wanted to stop for a second and note the significance of the fact that we just […]

One of the privileges of my job is working with many different technology leaders who are major users of big data. In all types of company and industry. I get a bird’s eye view of the playing field. There’s definitely a number of skirmishes happening at the moment in the cultural revolution created by the data […]

If you’ve been reading along, you’re aware of the lightbulb moments from my article, “echo: hello world”, that allowed me to discover the benefits of an analytic approach to cybersecurity.  This is the start of my new blog series, The CISO’s View, where I focus on the executive level business concerns facing security leaders. Today, […]

The Financial regulators are driving a Data Evolution Traditionally technology moves fast, regulators react slow. When technology leaps forward, it enables financial firms to change the nature of their business – often into un-regulated territory; Regulators react to pass regulation to catch up. This model can work in slow moving markets, but in todays interconnected […]

Cloud Computing is one of the big three trends impacting IT architectures today.  What some may not realize is that an underlying connected data architecture is not only essential for cloud, but sits at the confluence of all three trends. Here’s why. The first big trend is IoT. According to BI Intelligence, we can now […]

Rob and I […]

I want to personally thank Herb for his contributions to Hortonworks. Herb has been a terrific partner of mine for over a decade and across several […]
