Hortonworks Introduces Enterprise Data Warehouse Optimization Solution

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 1 — Hortonworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: HDP), a leading innovator of open and connected data platforms, today announced its Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) Optimization Solution, the industry’s only turnkey Hadoop-powered Business Intelligence (BI) solution. Available today, this solution from Hortonworks is powered by Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) and technology from partners Syncsort and AtScale. With the EDW Optimization Solution, customers can extend the value of existing EDW investments and overcome the challenges, risks and costs of introducing new solutions into legacy infrastructure.

Hortonworks delivers connected data platforms for more than 1,000 of the world’s leading enterprises to power new data strategies and amazing business outcomes. To further accelerate time to value and simplify data-driven transformations for customers, Hortonworks is introducing Hortonworks Solutions. Each of these solutions, which are built on connected data platforms, will combine key open source technologies from Hortonworks with modern partner applications. The EDW Optimization Solution is the first Hortonworks Solution.

Today, many organizations are forced to cobble together their own applications and solutions from Hadoop and other supporting components, resulting in high resource costs and risk. By packaging technology and expertise from Hortonworks, AtScale and Syncsort into a single solution, the EDW Optimization Solution accelerates the value customers realize from their data initiatives.

Tested and validated, the EDW Optimization Solution forms a complete, easy-to-implement and modern BI solution that unlocks actionable intelligence from data without heavy lifting or steep cost. The EDW Optimization Solution includes Hortonworks’ core offering of HDP Support, as well as Syncsort’s DMX-h and AtScale’s Intelligence Platform, and is capable of storing and analyzing data of all types and from all sources. With the solution, customers can:

  • Make fast business intelligence on Hadoop a reality. The solution gives customers the choice of querying select data sets for maximum performance or full data sets when fine-grained detail is needed.
  • Free up EDW capacity for more business-critical workloads. The solution makes it easy to offload ETL jobs by providing high-performance ETL tools, a powerful SQL engine and integration with all major BI vendors.
  • Take advantage of cost-effective data archiving in Hadoop. At one tenth the cost of traditional EDW solutions, the EDW Optimization Solution enables customers to store years of data rather than months.
  • Enrich EDW data with new sources of corporate insight from web, social, the Internet of Things and more. Because of the flexibility and extensibility of the Hadoop ecosystem, easy onboarding and sophisticated analysis of emerging data types is now a possibility.

Hortonworks will host a webinar on February 21, 2017 at 10:00 AM Pacific Time to provide an overview of the EDW Optimization Solution and its primary use cases. To register for the webinar, please visit http://hortonworks.com/webinar/3-real-use-cases-optimal-edw-solution-using-hadoop/

“Data is the digital currency of this fourth industrial revolution. Organizations rely on data to deliver actionable business and customer insights, and the EDW remains a centerpiece for delivering much of this information. But EDWs require the biggest re-architecting since their inception to adapt to the demands of modern agility and scale in the digital age,” said Scott Gnau, chief technology officer of Hortonworks. “Our new EDW Optimization Solution offers an integrated, tested and certified solution that eases the complex and costly process for customers, ultimately allowing for faster business transformation.”
