MicroStrategy And Hortonworks Team Up To Advance Big Data Analytics

Hortonworks, a leading open source contributor and provider of enterprise Apache™ Hadoop®, and MicroStrategy® Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence (BI) and mobile software, are joining forces to usher in the next-generation of big data analytics.

MicroStrategy has certified the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) 1.3 with MicroStrategy 9.3.1 in order to provide a solution that enables business users to quickly and easily leverage Hadoop data sources and perform advanced analytics that improve decision-making. HDP 1.3 incorporates the most recent advances from the open source community allowing customers to leverage the latest enterprise-focused Hadoop innovations and optimizations. Hortonworks also joined the MicroStrategy Technology Partner Program in order to have access to MicroStrategy technology, technical resources, marketing and sales support to further accelerate Hadoop as the next-generation data platform.

“MicroStrategy is proud to welcome Hortonworks to our Technology Partner Program,” explained MicroStrategy President Paul Zolfaghari. “We work closely with our Technology Partners not only in optimizing our integration points, but also in defining a clear and consistent roadmap for keeping pace with the ever-increasing amounts of structured and unstructured data,” he added.

“Hortonworks is pleased to be partnering with BI industry pioneer MicroStrategy to help companies with their big data initiatives,” said Shaun Connolly, vice president, corporate strategy, Hortonworks. “Our goal is to enable Hadoop as the foundational component in a modern data architecture by working closely with and enabling leading vendors in the ecosystem, like MicroStrategy. Through this effort, we are enabling the large community of MicroStrategy users to interact simply with data stored in Hadoop.”

Hortonworks and MicroStrategy will continue to collaborate closely on Hadoop integration and optimization advancements. “As data demands continue to accelerate, it is imperative for MicroStrategy to work hand-in-hand with Hortonworks and the Hadoop community to develop joint solutions that meet tomorrow’s business analytics needs today,” declared Zolfaghari.
