Hortonworks’ Cork office will provide space for an expanded global technical support team for the more than 750 customers as well as space for other operational professionals. Additionally it will offer an ideal location to welcome both partners and prospective customers.
Hortonworks’ local presence in the region has already seen Trustev, the Cork-based technology company for the financial and e-commerce sectors, opting to enhance its analytics proposition based on the Hortonworks Data Platform. Hortonworks is the Palo Alto-headquartered company driving adoption of Apache Hadoop, freely-downloadable software for storing, analysing and managing large amounts of data. Founded in 2012, the company became the first of Hadoop distributor in late 2014 to file for IPO.
In 2015, Hortonworks has developed an extensive network of partners and customers to fuel the international adoption of Hadoop and deliver ‘best-in-class’ technical support. Bluemetrix, a Cork-based big data specialist delivering web analytics and data consultancy, recently became the first Hortonworks Silver Certified Partner in Ireland.
“Our presence in Ireland is yet another step towards making Enterprise Hadoop as widely available as possible,” said Andy Leaver, Vice President of International Operations, Hortonworks. “Hortonworks will also be working towards the recruitment of up to 50 new employees for our new Cork facilities to continue to meet the significant uptake in Hadoop across Ireland and the rest of Europe.”
