PALO ALTO, Calif., March 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cloudera, the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache Hadoop, today announced meinestadt.de, a leading German classifieds and local information portal, has selected Cloudera to build out its data discovery platform to help improve the user experience across the company's web services. Cloudera's Hadoop-based platform for Big Data, Cloudera Enterprise, will enable meinestadt.de to glean new insights from the millions of customer interactions that filter through its web services each day. To boost the company's storage capabilities, Cloudera Enterprise will work in tandem with meinestadt.de's existing Oracle data warehouse to collect its data, making it more secure, resilient, and flexible to react to change.
