Hortonworks was formed by the key architects, builders and operators from the Yahoo! Hadoop software engineering team that led the effort to design and build every major release of Apache Hadoop from 0.1 to the most current stable release, contributing more than 80% of the code along the way.
The partnership between Hortonworks and Jaspersoft provides a good combination– Jaspersoft provides the ideal complement for reporting and analysis of Hadoop-based Big Data systems through a full suite of ETL, Apache Hive, and native Apache HBase connectors for low-latency data exploration.
Our Guest Speaker for this event will be Adam Muise:
