Hortonworks’ New Certification Program Enables the Next Generation Data Architecture With Apache Hadoop

Hortonworks, a leading contributor to Apache Hadoop, today announced the launch of the Hortonworks Certified Technology Program, designed to help customers choose leading enterprise software that has been tested to integrate with Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), the only 100-percent open source Apache Hadoop distribution. By certifying technologies, Hortonworks is taking the risk out of the technology selection, thereby accelerating and simplifying customers’ big data projects. The Program strengthens and expands the Apache Hadoop ecosystem, while helping to increase the enterprise capabilities of Apache Hadoop.

The Certified Technology Program enables Hortonworks’ partners to deliver pre-built and validated Hadoop-based applications, tools and processes that integrate seamlessly with existing enterprise architectures. Certifying their technologies with the only 100-percent open source Apache Hadoop distribution helps their customers make the decision to take advantage of the benefits of Hadoop.

The Program ensures the interoperability of Hadoop-based enterprise technologies, thereby easing big data decision-making. With Hortonworks and its ecosystem of certified technology partners, enterprises can deploy leading big data solutions with tested and validated integrations. Hortonworks Technology Partners that are certified with Hortonworks Data Platform include (but not limited to) Attunity, Datameer, Karmasphere, MarkLogic, Microsoft, NetApp, Pentaho, Simba, Splunk, StackIQ, Syncsort, Tableau, Talend and Teradata.

Many technologies are becoming available today that uncover new insights that Hadoop enables. These technologies each play a different part in the data stack – such as enabling new analytics, robust visualizations, easing data movement and increasing big data storage. Customers are faced with selecting these technologies and testing the integration with Hadoop. By providing reference architectures and tested integrations, The Hortonworks Certified Technology Program makes the selection easier for big data architects in the design and execution phases.

Hortonworks Data Platform, powered by Apache Hadoop, is increasingly becoming a core component of enterprise data management systems as it allows organizations to capture, process and share data in any format and at scale. By refining, exploring and enriching this complex information, organizations can uncover customer and operational insights that drive better business decisions.

The certification process involves validating enterprise technologies against integration test cases and reviewing for architectural best practices. The Program delivers a choice of validated technology to help accelerate innovation, simplify decision-making and reduce risk, all while providing a rapid return on investment for organizations deploying Apache Hadoop within the enterprise.

“Backed by Hortonworks Technology Partners, our efforts to deploy an industry-wide Program to certify Apache Hadoop-based interoperability with leading enterprise technologies will enable the community to make Hadoop the next-generation enterprise data management platform,” said Herb Cunitz, president of Hortonworks. “More seamless and optimized integration with existing enterprise tools with the Hortonworks Data Platform will enable a viable and stable architecture that meets enterprise needs for big data processing and management.”
