L'inclusion de Big Data Partnership dans le Programme de partenaires de big data de Microsoft offrira de nombreux avantages à ses clients, leur permettant non seulement de comprendre la variété grandissante de données mais aussi d'obtenir un déploiement de solutions simplifié via HDInsight.
« Big Data Partnership se réjouit de travailler avec Microsoft pour contribuer à accélérer l'adoption de ses solutions de big data en entreprise », a déclaré Mike Merritt-Holmes, PDG de Big Data Partnership. « En combinant la simplicité de Windows Server avec la puissance et la fiabilité de la Hortonworks Data Platform, nous serons en mesure d'offrir une analytique avancée convaincante et de nous assurer qu'un plus grand nombre de personnes bénéficient des avantages promis par les big data à l'aide des outils familiers d'Excel, y compris PowerPivot et Power View. Nous félicitons Microsoft pour son engagement et sa contribution à la communauté open-source d'Apache Hadoop et pour avoir aidé à démocratiser les big data. »
