Hortonworks, Open Enterprise Hadoop


Open Enterprise Hadoop is an emerging category of solutions that help businesses translate information into competitive advantage. Across industries, you can find companies using Open Enterprise Hadoop in large-scale projects to enable deep data discovery, to capture a single view of customers across multiple data sets, and to help data scientists perform predictive analytics. In these ways, companies meet current customer needs, anticipate shifting market dynamics and consumer behaviors, and test business hypotheses—all crucial capabilities to help them outmaneuver and outperform their competitors.

Hortonworks is pioneering the Open Enterprise Hadoop category, and it is gaining market momentum. Join Hortonworks’ BBBT Ranked Event on August 28 to learn more about drivers and benefits of Open Enterprise Hadoop.
