Business Focus:
Founded in 2011 by 24 engineers from the original Yahoo! Hadoop team, Hortonworks has amassed more Hadoop experience under one roof than any other organization in the world. Our team works every day to enhance the Hadoop core, creating new code to improve the open product we have stewarded since its inception. Simply put, we are your best choice to support you in your Hadoop journey. We deliver the components of Enterprise Hadoop as Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), the keystone of the Modern Data Architecture designed to meet the needs of enterprise data processing. With YARN at its architectural center, HDP enables a unified platform for batch, interactive and real time data access. HDP incorporates a common approach to Security, Operations and Governance all delivered completely in the open. HDP is deeply integrated with existing systems to create a highly efficient, highly scalable way to manage all your enterprise data

Within the public sector, Apache Hadoop delivers data-driven 
actions in support of IT efficiency and good government. In one 
example, the United States Internal Revenue Service had to reduce 
its auditor headcount due to budget cuts. Hadoop-driven analysis 
and "robo-auditors" could trace the digital footprint of tax evaders 
from Internet and social media sites and then provide that 
information to revenue investigators. Hadoop enables that type of 
efficient categorization and analysis of large data sets, freeing up 
resources for higher-value activities in the public sector.

Hadoop's economic, secure storage and processing gives 
government agencies new options for optimizing their IT 
infrastructures and developing new applications. For these reasons, 
administrators within Intelligence, Defense and Civilian agencies 
adopt Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) as part of their investments 
in a modern data architecture. 

Hortonworks partners with organizations within the public sector to 
gain value from Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) and Hadoop by 
decreasing costs through more efficient systems or by uncovering 
new opportunities using Hadoop based advanced analytics. 


Access to Contract Vehicles:
Government agencies at the federal, state and local levels can purchase support for Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) from the immixGroup off of the GSA Schedule.
