Big Data Partnership Announces Support for Microsoft's HDInsight

Big Data Partnership joins Microsoft Big Data Partner Incubation Program

LONDON, November 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Big Data Partnership, a leading 'Big Data' specialist service provider, today announced that it has been chosen as one of a few select organizations from around the world to participate in the Microsoft Big Data Partner Incubation Program. Big Data Partnership's participation in the program followed a rigorous nomination process that was supported by Microsoft SQL Server global marketing managers and industry leads.

Under this agreement, the two companies will work closely together to drive customer engagement and the roll-out of Microsoft HDInsight, which is Microsoft's distribution of Apache Hadoop for the Windows Azure and Windows Server platforms. Microsoft's HDInsight is an Enterprise-ready Hadoop service based on the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), enabling customers to seamlessly store and process data of all types, including structured, unstructured, and real-time data in order to achieve rich insights and drive operational efficiencies and increased revenue opportunities.

Big Data Partnership's inclusion on the Microsoft Big Data Partner Program will deliver many benefits to its clients; enabling them not only to understand the growing variety of the data but also to achieve simplified deployment of solutions via HDInsight.

"Big Data Partnership is excited to work with Microsoft to help accelerate the adoption of its big data solution in Enterprise," said Mike Merritt-Holmes, CEO at Big Data Partnership. "By combining the simplicity of Windows Server with the power and reliability of the Hortonworks Data Platform, we will be able to deliver compelling advanced analytics and ensure that a wider audience reap the benefits big data promises using the familiar tools of Excel, including PowerPivot and Power View. We commend Microsoft for their commitment and contribution to the open source Apache Hadoop community and for helping to democratize big data."

Big Data Partnership is a partner of both Microsoft and Hortonworks, the market-leading pioneer of Apache Hadoop. As a Hortonworks' Certified Training Partner, Big Data Partnership will also be delivering the 'Hortonworks Hadoop on Windows for Developers' training course for customers across Europe in early 2013.

"Microsoft HDInsight will allow customers to run Hadoop on Windows Server and on Windows Azure," said Bob Baker, Director, Microsoft Server and Tools Marketing. "Combined with the business intelligence capabilities of SQL Server 2012, HDInsight enables customers to obtain great insight from structured and unstructured data. We see the services market around these capabilities as growing rapidly, and Big Data Partnership is well positioned to execute. We are pleased that Big Data Partnership is supporting Microsoft HDInsight, and we are excited about the value this relationship will bring to our joint customers."
