The core of the relationship between EY and Hortonworks focuses on the vast number of organizations that are currently leveraging or plan to leverage Hadoop for their complex data storage needs and EY’s ability to help address key business and technological considerations such as:
- The ability to store large volumes of unstructured data enabling forward looking, actionable intelligence (as evidenced by EY’s recently released warranty analytics solution).
- Real time collaboration and monitoring of information to drive faster response and performance (i.e., monitor a patient’s vital signs real time in healthcare)
- Enabling a 360 degree view of a customer that enables tailored offerings and service level agreements based on customer segmentation
- Quickly mining data and converting them into insights to help clients in their efforts to increase revenue, decrease cost and drive the customer experience
The strategic business relationship will utilize EY’s emerging technology enablement, analytics, and program management practices to deliver new offerings using HDP. Leveraging Hadoop will help businesses create the right infrastructure to support their data analytics efforts and increase their ability of gaining a real time understanding of their business through Big Data.
