Syncsort a Featured Partner at Cloudera Sessions 2014

Attendees to Learn How the Enterprise Data Hub & Hadoop Can Put Them on Path to Big Data Success

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. – April 23, 2014

Syncsort, a global leader in Big Data integration solutions, today announced that it will be a featured partner in Cloudera Sessions 2014. The series, taking place from March through September, will introduce organizations to how the enterprise data hub and Hadoop will allow them, at a low cost, to absorb large amounts of data and gain unprecedented levels of valuable business insight.

As a featured partner for the second year in a row, Syncsort will be on hand to share experiences with real-world deployments and discuss best practices for achieving operational efficiency in Big Data Integration, including the most resource and cost efficient ways to leverage mainframe and legacy data with Hadoop. 

“Line of business managers are looking to gain advantage from enterprise-wide data, while using existing infrastructure and practices, meeting all compliance requirements, and reducing costs,” said Tim Stevens, vice president, Business and Corporate Development, Cloudera. “We are pleased to have Syncsort join us in helping attendees learn how to deploy an enterprise data hub to achieve this goal.”

The single-day, interactive events include presentations in the morning, and technical breakouts in the afternoon – designed to help attendees identify where they are on their journey with Apache Hadoop, and how to keep that journey going in a low-risk, productive way. They will benefit not only from Cloudera and Syncsort’s experiences with customers, but also hear directly from some of the Hadoop users who planned and manage them.
