Data warehouse experts team with Hortonworks to deploy Hortonworks Data Platform for enterprise-class Apache Hadoop data processing
NEW YORK – March 5, 2013 – Caserta Concepts, a consulting and technology services firm specializing in data warehousing, business intelligence and big data analytics, today announced a partnership with Hortonworks, a leading commercial vendor promoting the development and support of Apache Hadoop, to help clients across an array of industries manage and analyze big data with far greater efficiency and effectiveness than ever before.
According to a recent Gartner report, big data will drive $232 billion in IT spending through 2016. Big data is enabling organizations to store, process and analyze very large sets of both structured and unstructured data in ways that were not possible or practical until now. However, implementing a big data solution can be complicated and typically requires a large investment in infrastructure, as well as specialized skills and tools that most organizations do not possess.
Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), powered by Apache Hadoop, is a massively scalable, 100 percent open source platform for storing, processing and analyzing large volumes of data. It is designed to deal with data from many sources and formats in a quick, easy, and cost-effective manner. HDP includes the most popular and essential Apache Hadoop projects including HDFS, MapReduce, HCatalog, Pig, Hive, HBase and Zookeeper.
“Hortonworks Data Platform provides an open, stable and highly extensible platform,” said Joe Caserta, founder and CEO of Caserta Concepts. “Our strategic partnership with Hortonworks greatly simplifies the process of integrating Apache Hadoop into existing data architectures so our clients can maximize the value of data throughout their organizations.”
“We are pleased to partner with Caserta Concepts – Hadoop experts with real life project experience – to help accelerate the adoption of Apache Hadoop in the enterprise,” said Mitch Ferguson, vice president of business development, Hortonworks. “The combination of Hortonworks Data Platform with Caserta’s deep knowledge of financial services, insurance, healthcare, retail and other vertical industries will help organizations extract the most from their data.”
