CIO Survey: Hortonworks Data Platform now a Top IT Imperative

Matt Morgan, Hortonworks.

Having just returned from our Hadoop Summit Europe event, I was struck by the number of sessions that involved large scale businesses outlining the impact of their advanced analytic applications (built on Hadoop) and how those analytics are empowering better business decisions.

The story of business value is significant. Session after session, representatives from various industries talked about how their modern data architectures with Hadoop led to increased agility, new innovative customer experiences, and lower cost structures.

This was further validated by Forrester’s Mike Gualtieri who delivered a thought provoking keynote entitled “Adoption is the Only Option”. Gualtieri outlined the many ways that Hadoop is changing the world.
