SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 23, 2016) - Trifacta, the global leader in data wrangling, strengthened its partnership with Hortonworks, Inc., today, announcing deepened technical integration with the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). The announcement includes joint customers, new industry certifications and groundbreaking technical integrations for the Hortonworks Data Platform, including the industry's first certification for Apache Atlas. Learn more about these integrations and certifications at Hadoop Summit, San Jose between June 28-30, 2016.
The Atlas integration enables Hortonworks customers to more effectively leverage metadata within the Hortonworks Data Platform by enhancing it with user-generated metadata from the Trifacta data wrangling process. This seamless connection gives data analysts an easy way to publish metadata to Atlas, and data architects a single, consolidated view of technical and business metadata. The result: better collaboration between Line of Business and IT, and faster time-to-value for Hadoop initiatives.
"Trifacta empowers business analysts to interact with and visualize the data stored in the Hortonworks Data Platform. We are excited that Trifacta further extends its visualization and wrangling capabilities with Apache Atlas integration within the Hortonworks Data Platform. Leveraging Atlas' unmatched cross-component lineage features, customers can now track dataset activity and lineage across traditional platforms and HDP," said Matt Morgan, vice president of product and alliance marketing, Hortonworks.
Trifacta has also received the Hortonworks Security Certification through integration with Apache Ranger, the security and encryption framework for the Hortonworks Data Platform. Customers can seamlessly support security policies established within HDP when using Trifacta.
"Trifacta and Hortonworks are foundational pieces of our analytics strategy at PepsiCo. The Hortonworks Data Platform gives us the scale and flexibility to work with virtually any type of data while Trifacta's data wrangling solution provides our analysts with an extremely intuitive and efficient application for exploring and preparing data for various analytic uses. With Trifacta's expanded support of HDP components such as Apache Atlas and Ranger, we'll be able to accelerate the adoption of Hadoop at PepsiCo to handle new use cases and more users," said Mike Riegling, data analyst, customer collaborations & VMI planner, PepsiCo.
The new integrations build upon Trifacta's existing Hortonworks Data Platform and YARN Ready certifications, making Trifacta the presumptive data wrangling choice for Hortonworks customers. Trifacta has also collaborated with Hortonworks on industry-focused big data solutions in insurance and retail with common customers in both verticals.
"Integrating with Hortonworks' compliance and security frameworks is critical to providing our customers with an industry-leading data wrangling solution on Hadoop," said Wei Zheng, vice president, products, Trifacta. "We are excited to be the first data wrangling application to integrate with Apache Atlas and believe it's a critical step toward providing a more holistic approach to data governance and metadata management on Hadoop that both business and IT can benefit from. This integration and our ongoing relationship with Hortonworks is fundamental to driving more analytics use cases on Hadoop and enabling a broader set of users to work directly with the HDP."
