Attunity and Hortonworks Team Up to Optimize Big Data and Hadoop Integration

Attunity, experts in the realm of data integration software solutions, and Hortonworks, the industry’s foremost commercial vendor of Apache Hadoop, recently announced a partnership aimed at simplifying the integration of big data with Apache Hadoop.  If successful, the partnership would increase the usability and accessibility of big data by making it available for analytics not only in enterprise data centers, but also the cloud.

The Attunity and Hortonworks partnership can definitely be seen as a timely one, as many companies currently struggle with the difficulty that often comes with using big data.  If organizations can properly handle big data and apply business intelligence and predictive analytics, they can gain a decisive advantage over their competitors.  That’s where Attunity and Hortonworks come in. 

Attunity offers innovative data integration technology, while Hortonworks brings plenty of Apache Hadoop expertise to the table.  Thanks to the Hortonworks Data Platform, the tasks of installing, managing, and using Apache Hadoop become much simpler.  In addition, the platform allows users to build and deploy big data solutions in an open and stable environment.  Combine that with Attunity’s data integration solutions that can quickly load masses of data from various sources into the platform in a cost-friendly manner, and you have yourself a solid system for storing, processing and analyzing data in enterprise data centers and the cloud. 

Mitch Ferguson, Hortonworks’ VP of business development, discussed the benefit of partnering with Attunity: “As the volume of data continues to grow, organizations worldwide are quickly adopting Hadoop to store, manage and process Big Data for use in analytics, Business Intelligence (BI), and decision support.  Since data integration is traditionally one of the most time-consuming and challenging aspects in the Hadoop process, we are pleased to partner with Attunity. Working together, we can accelerate the adoption of Apache Hadoop by making it easier to deploy Big Data initiatives.”

Itamar Ankorion, Attunity’s VP of business development and corporate strategy, added: “Organizations that are able to leverage Big Data can become smarter about their customers, operations and business environment.  We believe that Attunity is uniquely positioned to facilitate the integration of Big Data with Hadoop, leveraging our robust portfolio of high-performance data integration and file transfer technologies. Our partnership with Hortonworks helps ensure that enterprises can make use of their Big Data and capitalize on the value of the Hadoop platform.”
