As we announced a few weeks ago, well over half of the Fortune 100 companies, and over one quarter of the Fortune Global 500 companies, leverage Hortonworks’ open source data platforms, HDP and HDF. Open source has won.
What these top companies recognize is that open source is an opportunity to develop and implement data management on their own terms. Many of these top companies also leverage Hortonworks Enterprise Support, which gives them access to a uniquely qualified and skilled team of Apache™ Hadoop® professionals with deep experience running the entire Apache Hadoop stack in production, at scale on demanding workloads.
Take, for example, Worldpay.
Worldpay is a London-based company that provides secure payment services for small and large businesses, including online card machines and telephone payments. The company chose Hortonworks for its open source approach, which enables Worldpay to influence the direction of Hortonworks software to meet their specific enterprise requirements.
In this video, David Walker, Enterprise Data Platform Programme Director & Technical Architect at WorldPay, talks about the company’s Big Data journey, and how Hortonworks support helped them influence the direction of the open source software.
David Walker also spoke at our Munich Summit in March, where he presented “WorldPay: Delivering Multi-Tenancy Applications In A Secure Operational Platform”. He was one of the many speakers to highlight current Hortonworks use cases in Europe, and the future of data technologies as well.
