Hortonworks Named a Visionary in 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse Data Management Solutions for Analytics

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 8, 2016 Hortonworks, Inc.® (NASDAQ: HDP) today announced it has been named a Visionary in the Gartner 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse and Data Management Solutions for Analytics.

According to Gartner, “Organizations now require data management solutions for analytics that are capable of managing and processing internal and external data of diverse types in diverse formats, in combination with data from traditional internal sources. Data may even include interaction and observational data — from Internet of Things sensors, for example. This requirement is placing new demands on software in this market as customers are looking for features and functions that represent a significant augmentation of existing enterprise data warehouse strategies.”

Hortonworks’ Connected Data Platforms, which include Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP™) and Hortonworks DataFlow (HDF™), enable customers to unlock the transformational power of all data with an open approach to securely managing data-in-motion and data-at-rest. HDP allows customers to accumulate, analyze and act on information derived from data, while HDF is a cornerstone technology for the Internet of Anything that powers the ingestion of data from any source to any destination in real-time.

“Hortonworks’ Connected Data Platforms go beyond data management—they provide customers with actionable intelligence into all their data,” said Scott Gnau, chief technology officer, Hortonworks.

Hortonworks recently announced a comprehensive strategy with new product advancements across its Connected Data Platforms.
