Cloudera: Why the Enterprise Data Cloud Is Indispensable

For this sponsored Cloud Wars Live conversation, I spoke with Mick Hollison, CMO of Cloudera. Mick just came back from a Cloudera customer event in New York City called Strata Data, during which they unveiled the new Cloudera Data Platform to the world. He says that customers wanted the platform to be open-source, with open APIs, open compute, and open storage.

Mick quotes Peter Levine of Andreesen Horowitz, who says that the early phase is about convincing developers and technologists to start programming. The next phase is to get users. And the third phase is figuring out how to extract meaningful analytics and insight from the data.

Mick goes on to say that they have a customer, Komatsu, which makes massive mining equipment that costs hundreds of millions of dollars. Cloudera put sensors on the devices to ingest the data, analyze it, and and then offer predictive maintenance recommendations. Quite a feat for machines so large, they can literally sink into the earth if they get stuck too long!

Cloudera recently announced that the Cloudera Data Platform is available on AWS. Soon, it will be available on Microsoft Azure. And early next year, on Google Cloud Platform.
