Cloudera has added resources, training, certification and communications to its Connect Partner Program. These enhancements give the company's partners access to new enablement programs and offer the opportunity to gain greater access to Cloudera customers, as well as to allow Cloudera to rapidly identify and refer the most appropriate partners to customers.
The Cloudera Connect Partner Program affords a variety of partnering opportunities and ability to deliver integrated big-data solutions to the market, the company said. Cloudera ensures that businesses can deploy an enterprise data hub where and how they need to; build and deploy solutions efficiently; and run a wide variety of applications, tools, frameworks and platforms within their Cloudera deployment.
The Cloudera technology certification program allows partners to work directly with Cloudera to integrate, test and certify their products against Cloudera Enterprise, providing customers with confidence that their choice of third-party products and applications will work seamlessly with the platform powered by Apache Hadoop.
"Enterprise data stores hold the answers to market success and competitive advantage, the most complex business problems and effective decision-making by a global workforce. Unfortunately, most enterprises haven't yet found a way to unlock the full value of their data to find those answers," Neuralytix managing director Benjamin S. Woo said. "Organizations that have access to a wide choice of solutions and products will have the ability to create systems that can manage and make the most of big data. The vendors that can put the widest range of choices front and center for their customers are going to gain a tremendous competitive advantage."
