Within the past 6 months, how has Hortonworks (software company) been covered in U.S. media/news?
Hello! Thanks for your question about how has Hortonworks been covered in U.S. media/news within the past six months. The short version is that I have compiled a list of eight articles on Hortonworks across topics such as products, partnerships, and other general news. Please view the findings in the attached spreadsheet.
I have examined news articles listed on Hortonworks website and also utilized Google News as per the search strategy that you have suggested. I have limited my search to articles published from January 11, 2017, to present day.
I have found two articles that talk about Hortonworks’ new or upgraded products. The company had announced version 2.6 of its data platform, which promises to reduce “systems of record production for its customers.” Another article talks about its new EDW Optimization Solution that “delivers a jumpstart, 7 -8 week services-led engagement to customers who are new to Hadoop and looking to extend their data warehouses.”
I have found one article that talks about Hortonworks’ partnership with Neustar and two articles on Hortonworks’ partnership with IBM. The collaboration with Neustar allows Neustar to utilize Hortonworks' data platform “to extend its OneID identity management tools to open source.” Hortonworks’ partnership with IBM will allow clients of IBM to “run Hadoop analytics directly on IBM Storage without needing isolated analytics storage silos” and IBM to “resell the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) as its official Hadoop product.”
In January, it was announced that Raj Verma had joined Hortonwork as its president and chief operating officer. In an article by Forbes, the CTO of Hortonworks, Scott Gnau said that “for businesses, in this new world where data is everywhere, your product is not only the product, but your data as well.” Lastly, it was reported that the company had generated “revenues of $55.97 million, growing 35% over the year,” for the quarter ended in March.
To wrap it up, I have compiled a list of eight articles on Hortonworks across topics such as products, partnerships, and other general news. Thanks for using Wonder! Please let us know if we can help with anything else!
