PALO ALTO, Calif., July 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Responding to the growing need to deliver more data to the right people at the right time, Cloudera, the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache Hadoop™, and Teradata, (NYSC: TDC) the big data analytics and marketing applications company, today announced the Teradata Appliance for Hadoop with Cloudera-the enterprise-ready Hadoop distribution.
Hadoop continues to mature into a transformational business platform for the enterprise.
