International Integrated Solutions, Ltd. (IIS), a comprehensive, end-to-end IT solutions provider with more than 25 years of experience, has joined forces with Hortonworks®, the developer behind the only 100 percent open source Apache™ Hadoop® data platform, to forge an alliance to bring together the expertise of IIS and the benefits of Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) to enterprises.
As the "third platform" alongside mobility and cloud, big data promises to deliver substantial value to the enterprise, and a multi-billion dollar opportunity as well. The IIS and Hortonworks partnership fulfills the need to bring business value to big data, filling a gap in the big data market by providing the underlying data fabrics required to enable opportunities to gain new insights from big data. With an expert solution provider like IIS to shepherd enterprises into the world of Hadoop and big data applications, delivering real value to the business from big data and analytics becomes a reality.
What differentiates Hortonworks as an elite partner is the fact that Hortonworks is the only 100 percent open source distribution of Apache Hadoop on the market. Hortonworks is unique in this aspect of the big data space, which is central to why IIS has teamed up with Hortonworks to continue to leverage open source to its fullest extent.
Together Hortonworks and IIS can offer their joint customers the knowledge of the business levers and technology driving big data in the enterprise. As an end-to-end solution provider with more than 25 years of experience, IIS has recently made significant investments in people, technology and a unique solution-set perspective that compliments and adds even higher value on top of Hortonworks' capabilities.
As stated by Jeff Smith, Director of New Business Development and Strategic Alliances for IIS, "Our customers today require data fabric technologies to meet the demands of their business. All customers today are facing infrastructure and technology constraints with the influx of data. Clearly, Hortonworks is a leader in Hadoop, which allows us to better solve these problems and provide a cost-effective solution," Smith added.
"There has been a gap in technologies to address customer needs, and Hortonworks fills this gap, which will allow us to better serve our customers," Smith continued. "Our customers are flooded with data from all types that they need to organize and monetize. The partnership with Hortonworks provides a critical tool that helps us build better solutions for our customers that will solve these big data problems."
"The partnership with IIS and Hortonworks allows us to better solve these problems and provide a cost-effective solution," Smith stated.
By combining forces, IIS and Hortonworks now give enterprises the opportunity to gain a hold of big data and leverage analytics to deliver real-time insights into today's business challenges. As the challenges of optimizing big data monetization come to light, IIS' expertise and Hortonworks' capabilities will be key differentiators in the big data market for years to come.
“Hortonworks is dedicated to expanding and empowering the Apache Hadoop ecosystem, accelerating innovation and adoption of 100 percent open source enterprise Hadoop,” said John Kreisa, vice president of strategic marketing at Hortonworks. “We welcome IIS to the Hortonworks Systems Integrator Partner Program and look forward to working with them to help strengthen Hadoop’s role as the foundation of the next-generation data architecture.”
Through its alliance with Hortonworks among other key players in the big data market, IIS stands poised to become a truly elite solution provider.
