Big Data is one of the greatest technologies that have sprung up over the last few years. The transformative power of big data analytics can truly make very big differences to the bottom lines of enterprises. It is no surprise, therefore, that large companies that have massive amounts of data have taken to Big Data with open arms, trying to garner game-changing insights from their treasure troves of data.
The buzz in the startup eco-system around Big Data has also been tremendous. Quick, nimble startups that have been able to exploit Big Data technologies to provide business insights have been quickly snapped up, both by customers and Venture Capitalists! And to help this process along, YourStory.in along with Accel Partners are thrilled to announce that Amr Awadallah from Cloudera will be interacting with Indian entrepreneurs on 14th March in Bangalore.
Cloudera is a leader in the world of big data and Hadoop, with several enterprise-class big data products in its portfolio. In fact, a significant part of Cloudera’s engineering capacity is dedicated to upstream projects that form the foundation of the open-source Hadoop toolchain, making Cloudera an undisputed leader in the big-data space.
Cloudera is believed to be valued over $700 million and its investors include Accel Partners, Greylock Partners and Ignition Partners among others, and is all set to capture a large pie of the massive big data market. Cloudera has an impressive list of customers in the likes of NetApp, eBay, BlackBerry, Nokia, Qualcomm, Trend Micro, The Walt Disney Company and Rackspace.
