Cloudera and T-Systems launch cloud-based analytics platform

Data analytics Europe

GERMANY — Big data platform provider Cloudera and European IT systems provider T-Systems have teamed up for a cloud-based data analytics platform.

Based on Cloudera’s Platform for Big Data, Cloudera Enterprise, the platform aims to allow customers to derive value from their data more quickly and easily.

Cloudera Enterprise, powered by Cloudera Impala RTQ for real time analytics, will provide the data management infrastructure layer, enabling native data integration, visualisation and analysis at scale. T-Systems will integrate its existing cloud computing infrastructure with Cloudera’s platform, to enable easily accessible and affordable analytics-as-a-service solutions with a high cloud standard.

The joint solution will first be made available to T-Systems’ enterprise customers in Europe with additional markets to follow worldwide.

“Our customers don’t want to have to worry about the hardware and software for big data. They don’t want technology, just a reliable service. We can offer precisely this – which is what makes our new offer with Cloudera so special,” says Christian Wirth, vice-president BI & Big Data at T-Systems.
