With the growth of the Philippine economy, Cloudera sees that the time to enter the Philippines is Now, and they are making their presence known. 

What is Apache HADOOP anyway?

Ten years ago, Doug Cutting named an open-source project: HADOOP. It was inspired by a yellow stuffed elephant his son was playing with. This became the HADOOP known today as an advanced large data processing and management framework. In short, HADOOP is a tool that enables recording, storing and analysing large data for its users.

Now, you may ask why do we need to efficiently and effectively manage and analyse data? That is what Cloudera is here for. They are here to add value to the data gathered from business, health care and the like. 

Attached herewith is the Official Press Release should you like to learn more about Cloudera.


An introduction to Cloudera and Apache Hadoop Cloudera and Apache Hadoop (more commonly known as Hadoop) 
Cloudera delivers a modern platform for data management and analytics, providing the world’s fastest, easiest, and most secure Apache Hadoop platform to help businesses solve the most challenging problems with data. Powered by the world’s most popular Hadoop distribution, Cloudera Enterprise makes Hadoop fast, easy, and secure, so customers can focus on results instead of the technology. 
Cloudera offers the highest performance and overall lowest TCO platform for using data to drive better business outcomes. A little on the technology: First, Cloudera offers the fastest analytic SQL with Impala and the industry’s best support for the high-performance Spark framework. 
The new Kudu storage engine is the first to enable fast analytics on real-time data. Additionally, Cloudera Navigator Optimizer now helps customers put data and workloads in the right system and format for the best performance and economics. Second, Cloudera makes Hadoop easy to manage on premise and in the public cloud through Cloudera Manager and Cloudera Director. 
Cloudera’s customer support leads the industry in its breadth and depth of expertise across the Hadoop ecosystem. Finally, only Cloudera is comprehensively secure, offering unique encryption, fine-grained data access protection, and full audit and lineage capabilities. 
Ultimately, Cloudera is the enterprise choice for leading global organizations who want to gain value from all their data. Some context – 10 years of Hadoop for businesses Hadoop and its community turned 10 years old in January 2016. In 2005, Doug Cutting, currently Chief Architect at Cloudera, named the open source project that he co-created after his son’s stuffed toy elephant – ‘Hadoop’. Now, a leading contender in advanced data processing and management frameworks, Hadoop has been popularized by its yellow elephant mascot. Officially born on January 28, 2006, Hadoop is an ecosystem of open source components that fundamentally changed the way enterprises store, process, and analyze data. 
Unlike traditional systems, Hadoop enables multiple types of analytic workloads to run on the same data, at the same time. Hadoop has been a game changer for businesses and organizations that work with a large amount of data on a daily basis. 
Technologies like Hadoop have helped to transform raw data into useful and meaningful information, allowing businesses and organizations to draw deeper conclusions and derive at insights. This, in turn, has led to informed business decision making, better visibility into business operations, industries and markets.
It has allowed businesses to build strategic programs that intelligently build customer and employee satisfaction, streamline global operations and arrive at cost savings. It has helped product development and research teams break new grounds and drive innovation that was never before possible by working effectively with big data. 
While the initial Hadoop success stories were focused around cheap and deep storage and data processing, enterprises -- both large and small -- have continued to do truly transformative things with this platform and the range of applications continues to grow. For example, Communications Service Providers (CSPs), like True and British Telecom (BT), are building applications to create an integrated 360-degree customer view across their businesses, revolutionizing how they engage with their customers (all to strengthen relationships with them). Financial services organizations, like Northern Trust, are improving the delivery of services and implementing real-time health monitoring for payment processing. 
In fact, across industries, common applications will also continue to modernize, thanks to the technology that is available. The future – data as a skillset While the need to leverage big data for insights is growing quick universally, the general awareness of the benefits of extracting value from data is still a challenge for many in the Asia Pacific region. With this, there is also a lack of skills availability in the region. Increasingly, organizations across all verticals are using Hadoop to extract value from big data and there is clearly a demand for this particular skillset, and therefore, a gap that will need to be filled. 
This is something we are working towards at Cloudera. Over 100 leading tertiary educational institutions from more than 17 countries, have joined the Cloudera Academic Partnership (CAP) program – a program that gives computer science students access to free advanced Apache Hadoop curriculum, training and tools to prepare them for careers in big data. Out of these 100 leading universities, 20 percent are based in Asia, and we are continuing to explore opportunities to grow this initiative in the region and beyond. 
With CAP, the end result is a new generation of Hadoop-aware IT professionals who will fill the skills gap. This is a big step in the right direction, but it is not everything. Technology is just one part of the equation when it comes to re-architecting with Hadoop. Organizations realize that they also need to factor in people and process changes, and often, figuring out how to manage all the change is daunting. On our end, we will continue to simplify the product as much as possible. Take Cloudera Navigator Optimizer, for example, which we designed to provide visibility into workloads, help users understand the ones that are best suited for deployment on Hadoop, reduce development time and improve performance. Incremental improvements like this go a long way to making adoption easier and encourage the use of Hadoop as a desired skill.

The latest news from Cloudera Cloudera Named a Visionary in 2016 GartnerMagic Quadrant for Data Warehouse Data Management Solutions for Analytics Cloudera announced that it has this year been positioned from the Challengers to the Visionaries quadrant of the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse and Data Management Solutions for Analytics. The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) has long been labeled the lifeblood of organizational analytics -- in some cases fueling entire businesses. 
This model proved adequate for many years until the rise of a web-driven digital culture put increased demands on data collection and distributed analysis. As some organizations struggled to scale to meet the demands of more data for business decision making, others saw the need to complement their existing data warehouse infrastructure with robust, easy to use and secure Hadoop-based technologies that enable them to address challenges that demand more than a traditional EDW alone. 
Built with Apache Hadoop at its core, Cloudera Enterprise is a powerful and scalable data platform with the flexibility to run a variety of workloads — batch processing, interactive SQL, enterprise search, advanced analytics — together with robust security, governance, data protection and management that enterprises require. Cloudera and Fusionex Form Strategic Allianceto Bring Joint Big Data Offerings Fusionex and Cloudera announced a strategic alliance to bring together each company's big data and technological expertise that will include bundled big data offerings.
