The Power of Strategic Partnerships in Thriving Hadoop Ecosystems

Alignment of the organization’s enterprise technology strategy and existing technologies to a Hadoop distribution vendor-partner alliances and product ecosystem is critical on the journey to the successful Data Lake.

In this white paper, we classify the hierarchy of technology vendor-partnerships to provide a method for understanding vendor-partner alliances to recognize key relationships that will matter most for companies adopting Hadoop. Then, we apply these classifications to several of Hortonworks’ strategic vendor-partner alliances to highlight the significant collaborations and shared-vision commitments that provide the most unique competitive advantage for customers.
