Teradata Corp., a big data analytics and marketing applications provider, and Cloudera, an enterprise analytic data management company powered by Apache Hadoop, announced on Oct. 9 an expanded partnership that covers broad technology integration and development road map alignment, and a unified go-to-market, sales and support offering.

The two companies are optimizing the integration between Teradata’s integrated data warehouse and Cloudera’s enterprise data hub offering to facilitate access to multiple data sources through the Teradata Unified Data Architecture.

“The hallmark of the Unified Data Architecture is processing any analytic on any data, and this capability requires multiple technologies to be integrated. Adding Cloudera to the UDA offers our customers additional choices. The Unified Data Architecture combines the enterprise data hub and the integrated data warehouse into one large analytic ecosystem. Our respective product roadmaps are now better aligned to make this a reality,” said Scott Gnau, president of Teradata Labs.

“Our vision for an enterprise data hub is that it complements key solutions like an integrated data warehouse to deliver real value in big data. Our partnership with Teradata ensures customers have the access to best-of-breed solutions to solve today’s challenging problem of getting the most value from all of their data,” said Tom Reilly, chief executive officer, Cloudera.

“We are firm believers of specialized processing platforms and the Teradata vision around the Unified Data Architecture (UDA),” said Faker Zouaoui, vice president of enterprise data, analytics and business intelligence, Sabre GLBL, Inc. “We are excited to see how Teradata and Cloudera are joining forces to provide a more robust, manageable and integrated environment. Loading large amounts of travel data into CDH and having the right SQL-on-Hadoop integration capabilities of Teradata QueryGrid is critical for Sabre.”
