SANTA CLARA, Calif. — December 12, 2016 — Hosts Hortonworks® (NASDAQ: HDP) and Yahoo! today announced the expansion of Hadoop Summit to include DataWorks Summit to meet the demands of a growing and accelerating data ecosystem. DataWorks Summit and Hadoop Summit will spark conversation around today’s modern data applications and the importance of a connected data architecture, of which Apache Hadoop and related technologies play integral roles. Starting with the 2017 conference in Munich, Germany on April 5-6, DataWorks Summit and Hadoop Summit will bring partners and customers together to discuss business transformations fueled by data and customer innovation.

“As customers look to the Internet of Things, cloud and modern data applications to fuel business transformation, we saw an opportunity to expand Hadoop Summit to also include the those growing communities,” said Matt Morgan, senior vice president of marketing, Hortonworks. “DataWorks Summit and Hadoop Summit offers a unique opportunity for customers and partners to interact with thought leaders, Apache Committers, industry luminaries and thousands of their peers and learn from the best minds across the open source community.”

For the first time, the event’s Community Showcase will have specific areas that reflect the broader trends and technologies in the ecosystem:

  • Apache Hadoop Zone
  • IoT & Streaming Zone
  • Cloud & Operations Zone
  • Apache Spark & Data Science Zone

DataWorks Summit and Hadoop Summit is a unique event because all technical sessions are voted on and vetted by the community.
