The Emerging Architecture for Modern Data Applications

As organizations journey from structured-data-only databases, to data lakes, and to connected data platforms, it has empowered a shift to more user-centric systems.

Hortonworks Sandbox for HDP and HDF is your chance to get started on learning, developing, testing and trying out new features. Each download comes preconfigured with interactive tutorials, sample data and developments from the Apache community.

Modern Enterprises Run on Data.

As part of our work at Hortonworks, we have been working with industry delivering Open and Connected Data Platforms that enable organizations to manage all data, data-in-motion and data-at-rest to empower actionable intelligence.

This week at Hadoop Summit, the industry’s premier community event for  enterprise Hadoop and all things big-data,  the community is thrilled to be hosting well over 4000 attendees from all over the world as they showcase the business transformations and mission-critical use cases powered by Hadoop.

The Shift to User-Centric Systems

As organizations continue to take the data journey from structured-data-only databases, to data lakes, and to connected data platforms, it has empowered a shift to more user-centric systems. These breakthrough user-centric systems are exemplified by the world of mobile, social, and connected computing. Modern Data Applications are dynamic, with consistent and global views of assets, customers, activities, etc., pulled together with breakthrough logic that empowers new levels of computing value.


The Data-Plane Requirement

With the shift to user-centric systems and Modern Data Applications, projects and initiatives around the Internet of Anything continue to accelerate. Today’s Modern Data Applications require a data architecture that addresses data in various, multi-dimensional locations across both cloud and data-center infrastructure.

A Connected Data Platforms strategy delivers unique value by enabling an organization to establish the data-plane for all data across the datacenter and cloud. A Connected Data Platforms strategy helps deliver the capabilities to manage data where it needs to be managed, analyze it in all forms and states, and provide actionable intelligence in real-time, through a 100% open source approach. This idea of “hybrid data” is very much a reality and a hard-requirement for user-centric, modern data applications.


At this week’s Summit keynotes, we will be hearing from organizations such as CapitalOne, Macy’s, Progressive Insurance, Microsoft, Google, Arizona State University and Hortonworks as they talk about the business transformations being powered by a Connected Data Platforms architecture.
