Overview

Business analysts use data discovery tools to deliver advanced analytics and actionable insights from diverse data sets. HDP® enables data analysis using Hadoop to explore new data types and large data sets that were previously too big to capture, store and process. They unlock insights from data such as clickstream, geo-location, sensor, server log, social, text and video data.

This new data enriches existing analytic applications with new perspectives and insights. New data also drives the creation of innovative new apps that provide new value to the business. Organizations can access and visualize relevant business intelligence faster with data discovery tools that help accelerate enterprise decision-making. Hortonworks empowers businesses in every type of industry by bridging the gap between data and insights with its data discovery and analysis platform based on Hadoop.
