Capgemini and Cloudera Extend Partnership to Help Organizations Accelerate Their Big Data Initiatives
PALO ALTO, Calif. & PARIS --(Business Wire)--
one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and
outsourcing services, has today extended its partnership with Cloudera,
the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache™
Hadoop®, through the launch of two new offerings that combine Cloudera's
data management platform, Cloudera
Enterprise, with Capgemini's (News - Alert) service and support.
The two offerings will help organizations to gain greater value from
their data assets more quickly using the Cloudera Big Data platform:
1. A new "Enterprise Data Hub Accelerator" offering will help
organizations more quickly and effectively execute their first Big Data
projects, by providing a clear and complete roadmap on how to scale data
governance, analytics and data platforms to become part of a full
enterprise-wide Big Data strategy to aid business transformation.
The Enterprise Data Hub Accelerator addresses customers' needs to
better understand where they should start with Big Data
Implementations, how to ensure success and value creation for their
business users, and how to guarantee that the choices made will scale
The solution combines Cloudera's open-source, enterprise data
management platform, with Capgemini's best practices in Information
Strategy and Transformation. Cloudera provides one centralized
platform to manage all data in an agile and cost-efficient way so it
can be integrated flexibly with existing infrastructure and tools.
Capgemini works with the customer to identify business drivers,
transform information governance and rethink analytics processes
through a clearly defined roadmap, to help organizations define what
they should do when.
2. The new "Data Science-as-a-Service" on the Cloudera platform
provides anticipatory intelligence services such as: Supply Chain Risk
Monitoring, Fraud and Anti Money Laundering, Brand Reputation Monitoring
and Key Influencers Intelligence.
Using a Cloudera Enterprise platform and Capgemini's Data Science and
Analytics capabilities, as part of its Elastic
Analytics solution, Capgemini is able to help organizations
distinguish market noise from valuable business insights
This offer is addressing all aspects of Data Science and Analytics
including data inventory and preparation; predictive and prescriptive
modeling; classification and clustering, machine learning, simulation
and optimization, visualization and deployment, without the complexity
of having to develop Data Science skills in-house.
As part of the extended partnership, Capgemini is significantly
accelerating its global investment in the Cloudera platform. To
facilitate Big Data project execution a global reseller agreement
between Cloudera and Capgemini will offer customers access to a 'one
stop shop' for their Big Data projects. In addition Capgemini is ramping
up training within its own delivery team with over 500 additional
consultants to be trained in the next 18 months.
"In today's world, consumers are empowered with data wherever they
are; sensors are being bolted onto all the objects we interact with.
Frontiers between the digital and bricks-and-mortar worlds are
disappearing, so organizations' business models are being disrupted.
Addressing real business challenges such as managing the evolution of
the Customer Experience or the impact of the Internet of Things requires
Big Data," said Manuel
Sevilla, Group CTO Business Information Management, Capgemini.
"Partnering closely with Cloudera allows us to accelerate the execution
of Big Data projects."
"As a leading provider of services, Capgemini has the expertise and
experience to deliver on Big Data projects. They make it easy for
companies to derive value from their Big Data investments," said Tom

one place to store all data for as long as desired in its original
fidelity - and by ensuring that Big Data customers can benefit from
Cloudera's technology leadership and Capgemini's services expertise."
