Hortonworks Data Platform Selected by Nissan Motor Company to Power its Data Lake

Adoption of HDP promotes cross-functional data analysis to discover valuable insights


TOKYO – October 10, 2017 — Hortonworks® (NASDAQ: HDP), a leading provider of global data management solutions, today announced that Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP®) has been selected by Nissan Motor Company Ltd. to power its data lake.

HDP will power Nissan Motor’s data lake infrastructure and will enable the collection of all data across the business, including data related to driving and vehicle quality. Powered by Apache Hadoop and enabled by a robust ecosystem, HDP enables Nissan Motor to use big data applications that require cross-functional data analysis, such as analyzing the battery usage in electric vehicles and quality management of vehicles to ensure users have a smooth and seamless enhanced driving experience.

HDP is the industry’s only true secure, enterprise-ready open source Apache Hadoop distribution. It includes Apache Spark and Apache HBase column-oriented database, enabling modern data architecture by linking the data lake to the existing data warehouses. This configuration allows enterprises to integrate diverse data from a variety of sources and provide users valuable information required for decision-making.

“Nissan Research Center’s Silicon Valley team has been evaluating Hadoop as a foundation for our modern data architecture since 2014,” said Satoshi Kitsuki, division general manager, global IT division, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. “After comparing a variety of vendors, Hortonworks and HDP received the highest marks by our team because of its open source approach, enterprise readiness and vibrant partner ecosystem.”

“Among those who have built data lakes, Nissan Motor’s deployment of HDP is one of the most sophisticated of our global customers,” said Kamal Brar, vice president of Asia Pacific, Hortonworks, Inc. “Hortonworks will continue to support Nissan Motor as a strategic partner to utilize data, including that from the Internet of Things, to further build its data lake.”
