Hortonworks Expands Australian Office
Posted on 4-Jun-2015 15:40 | Tags Filed under: News



Hortonworks, contributor to and provider of enterprise Apache Hadoop, today announced a significant expansion of its operations in Australia in response to growing demand for enterprise Hadoop in addressing the looming challenges of big data.

Hortonworks has hired several senior sales and technical staff in Australia, adding experience from industry-leading vendors.

In addition, the company has established an Asia Pacific (APAC) regional support centre in Sydney, which, added to existing hubs in the United States, United Kingdom and India, rounds out the company’s international network to deliver genuine 24/7 support for customers worldwide, but especially those in Australia and throughout APAC.

“Australia and APAC are a key focus for Hortonworks moving forward as a growing number of organisations in the region seek help understanding what big data is and then taking action to uncover value from that data,” said Andy Leaver, international vice president, Hortonworks.

“Hadoop is one of the most important and disruptive technology platforms to emerge in enterprise IT over the past several years. It provides both the technology and vibrant developer community to support cost-effective and efficient management of massive data sets while helping organisations extract intelligence from them.”

Australian businesses across key verticals including financial services, telecommunications, retail, manufacturing and mining are all grappling with exponential increases in data. As a result, these companies are looking for new solutions to help them optimise their IT spend, while creating new analytic applications for deeper insight into their business.

One of the missions of Hortonworks’ expanded office and team on the ground in Australia will be to further enable a vibrant ecosystem of partners locally and throughout the region, including Independent Software Vendors (ISV) and System Integrator (SI) ecosystem partners to help organisations take advantage of their big data.
