Connected Data Platforms

At Hortonworks, we believe that every business is now a data business, data is your future and your most valuable business asset. At the Business Analytics Conference, we will enable attendees to learn more about big data, its future, and how you can transform your business by unlocking its full potential.

A new category of big data solutions known as Connected Data Platforms delivers actionable intelligence to leaders in business, government, and academia by managing data-in-motion and data-at-rest. These Connected Data Platforms power the creation of modern data applications.

Hortonworks DataFlow (HDF) manages data-in-motion, by securely acquiring and transporting data to Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). HDP manages data-at-rest for all types of data, with enterprise-grade governance, security, and operations.

Only Hortonworks integrates these Connected Data Platforms and maximizes the value of the information from the Internet of Anything (IoAT).

What are the top two trends you see shaping the analytics space in 2016? How are you positioned to help data professionals address these?

  1. Ever increasing data is coming from the Internet of Anything. By the end of the decade, 44ZB of information will be generated by the Internet of Anything. Those who can find the value in this information will be best equipped to provide the next generation of products and services. Today, every business needs to be a data business. Hortonworks brings together data in motion and data at rest will find the next generation of modern data applications
  2. Agile analytics and Interoperability is essential. Choice is increasingly important when dealing with Data Analytics, Processing, and storage decisions. Hortonworks’ use of 100% Open Enterprise Hadoop gives our customers the capability to leverage technology from all the major technology companies. Our partnership with Microsoft gives customers seamless options to deploy Hortonworks Data Platform in the cloud as both Infrastructure as a service (via Azure Marketplace) or leverage HDInsight, Microsoft’s Hadoop as a service offering, powered by HDP. Finally, Apache Spark at scale with HDP gives our customers’ data scientists seamless access to data, unmatched economics, combining the speed of in-memory processing with HDP’s cost efficiencies.

What should attendees look forward to learning about at your exhibit at the PASS Business Analytics conference?

Attendees should look forward to gaining a better understanding of their options for leveraging HDP in the cloud and gaining a better understanding of how Hadoop, HDP, and HDF can help them better understand not just the volume of all their different data types, but also the value they can derive from it when it is harnessed to create Actionable Intelligence for their organization.
