Data is the currency for a digital transformation is a theme that came out loud and clear during last week’s Gartner Data and Analytics Summit.  This event for the first time brought together two popular conferences – Analytics and Master Data Management (MDM). The result was a very enjoyable time with tons of great conversations and […]

I figured I’d step away from my Cybersecurity Architecture series and CISO’s View series and share my experience in speaking to folks about cyber security.  Ideally, you should have a quick 20 second elevator pitch ready that explains the value a security program delivers to the business without using an security terminology. Using a security […]

Next week (March 6 – 9) Gartner will host their annual Data and Analytics Summit in Grapevine, TX.  This is where analysts from Gartner, vendors and many leaders of businesses of all sizes all get together and talk about data and analytics. Personally, I have not attended the conference for the past few years, but […]

Flexibility to alter and extend your most vital software assets is more important today than ever before, giving open source software an enormous advantage. Traditional software vendors aren’t able to keep up with what’s happening. Just look at the reality as the world has rapidly gone digital: Business models are undergoing insane change. Companies that […]

I decided to take a break from my Cybersecurity Architecture series and CISO’s View series to give my thoughts on this year’s RSA conference while things are still fresh.  First off, I enjoyed meeting with old colleagues and many security people that I respect which justified the trip as far as I’m concerned.  I’m really amazed […]

With the introduction of the Hortonworks Data Cloud (HDCloud), deploying clusters and starting to process data has become an order of magnitude faster. When Apache Hadoop evolved from being an on premise solution to a cloud based solution, the time it took to make a cluster went from weeks to days. The same magnitude of […]

Hortonworks has achieved quite a bit of success with online dating. Personally, I haven’t just yet, but hey it warms my heart to think about all those that we’ve helped bring together. Valentine’s Day is upon us and so I wanted to launch this cupid’s arrow with a missive about how Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) […]

It is that time of year again, right before Christmas in Las Vegas, where nearly 30,000 technologists gather to see the latest in innovation around the Cloud. Hortonworks is honored to participate as an exhibitor for the first time. If you are in Vegas this week for the AWS re:Invent, please stop by our booth #2732 […]

A guest blog post from Scott Schlesinger, Principal, America’s EY Advisory EY and Hortonworks formed a strategic business alliance in August 2015 that is focused on helping our valued clients turn big data challenges into big business opportunities.  Recognizing that big data is transforming business and technology is driving that change, EY plays a significant role in […]

Debugging distributed systems can be difficult largely because they are designed to run on many (possibly thousands) of hosts in a cluster. This process typically involves monitoring and analyzing log files spread across the cluster, and if the necessary information is not being logged, service restarts and job redeployment may be required. Not only is […]

Dinah Washington sang “what a difference a day makes” and having lived in London for a year this month, I’m feeling that multiplied by 365!  And what a year it has been…. I joined Hortonworks back in 2012 when the company was barely 8 months old and moved to be part of the International team […]

Part 1: A Little History In this series of blog posts, we will provide an in-depth look select features introduced with the release of Apache Storm (Storm) 1.0. To kick off the series, we’ll take a look how Storm has evolved over the years from its beginnings as an open source project, up to the […]

This blog focuses on moving streaming analytics outside the confines of the traditional data center. Moving streaming analytics closer to where data originates can be accomplished by leveraging an enterprise grade data movement application, married with an extremely lightweight streaming engine. This combination is being used by forward-looking organizations to solve usage cases in a […]

Apache Hadoop® exists within a broader ecosystem of enterprise analytical packages. This includes ETL tools, ERP and CRM systems, enterprise data warehouses, data marts and others. Modern workloads flow from these various traditional analytical sources into Hadoop and then often back out again. What dataset came from which system, when and how did it change over […]
