Enhance Business Operations with Cloudera

About Cloudera

As per Talend, Cloudera is a software company that, for more than a decade, has provided a structured, flexible, and scalable platform, enabling sophisticated analysis of big data using Apache Hadoop, in any environment.

In 2008, key engineers from Facebook, Google, Oracle, and Yahoo came together to create Cloudera. The idea arose from the need to create a product to help everyone harness the power of Hadoop distribution software.

For years, Hadoop had helped businesses and other organizations store, sort, and analyze large volumes of data. Cloudera was launched to help users deploy and manage Hadoop, bringing order and understanding to the data that serves as the lifeblood of any modern organization.

Cloudera allows for a depth of data processing that goes beyond just data accumulation and storage. Cloudera’s enhanced capabilities provide the power to analyze data rapidly and easily while tracking and securing it across all environments. By using Cloudera’s comprehensive audits and lineage tracing, users can know where data originated and why it matters.

Why do businesses use Cloudera?

Talend explains, amid the new environment, Cloudera helps businesses:

  • Make their data more accessible and secure
  • Understand and respond to their customer’s needs and preferences
  • Save money and time on data storage, management, and retrieval
  • Reduce complexity, enabling a greater focus on research and development
