PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cloudera, the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache Hadoop™, recently launched the Cloudera Accelerator Program to help partners develop and certify innovative applications on Impala, the leading analytic database for Hadoop.
