Cloudera, Fusionex to bring joint big data offerings

Fusionex and Cloudera have formed a strategic alliance to bring together each company´s big data and technological expertise that will include bundled big data offerings, the companies said.

Organizations all over the world will be able to kick start or implement Big Data projects with increased simplicity and carry out analytics where it is required, either on premise, in the cloud, or via a hybrid approach, using the companies´ solutions.

Fusionex is a multi-award winning, international provider specializing in analytics, Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT), and Cloudera is a global provider of the fastest, easiest, and most secure data management and analytics platform built on Apache Hadoop and the latest open source technologies.

With a firm presence in the Asia Pacific region, Fusionex will seek to further engage prospects and clients by integrating GIANT, the company´s big data analytics software, into Cloudera´s platform, Cloudera Enterprise, for a faster, more powerful, secure, precise and personalized data analytics and cognitive computing solution.

Cloudera, which is focused on helping companies large and small solve their most demanding business challenges with data, brings a modern platform for data management and analytics to the collaboration. Customers will also be able to receive from Cloudera the first and only proactive and predictive support for Hadoop.

This partnership between US-based Cloudera and UK-listed Fusionex is expected to transcend boundaries, as the combined effort will allow both companies to extend their reach across the global marketplace. Both companies will also be able to utilise each other´s customer base and wide distribution network to further expand their reach.
