Aptitude Software and Cloudera. The perfect partnership

Innovative companies understand that being truly data-driven is no longer optional. But many businesses face a roadblock between the need to be more data-driven and the cost & complexity of new technologies.

The promise of big data is that it will drive better strategic decision-making, improve customer experience and reduce costs. Unfortunately, the costs, complexity and contemporary nature of big data technologies have limited the operational application of technologies like Apache Hadoop.

The Aptitude™ platform enables enterprises to overcome the barriers by building operational business applications that leverage leading data storage and processing platforms, including Cloudera Enterprise.

Aptitude platform v5.0 and Cloudera Enterprise: greater than the sum of its parts.

The Aptitude platform is used to design, develop and deploy data-driven software systems. With version 5.0 of the Aptitude platform, released today, enterprises can easily apply in-memory, in-database and in-Hadoop processing technologies in operational business applications.

Likewise, Cloudera Enterprise offers the capabilities enterprises need to succeed with Apache Hadoop. It is designed specifically for mission-critical environments, providing advanced system and data management tools and the dedicated support from a world-class community of Hadoop experts.

Together, Aptitude Software and Cloudera provide a step-change in enterprises ability to create software systems that store, integrate, process and control all their data.

Aptitude version 5.0’s support for in-Hadoop processing on Cloudera empowers enterprises to leverage this technology alongside the full range of traditional systems used for data storage and processing.

A better business case for big data

Tom Crawford, President & MD of Aptitude Software, comments:

“By making it easier for enterprises to deploy big data processing technologies, Aptitude Software and Cloudera are empowering enterprise to leverage Hadoop in operational, rather than just analytic, applications.”

“Today’s release of Aptitude v5.0 multi-platform, with in-Hadoop, in-memory and in-database processing, provides a single enterprise application development and run-time environment on which to exploit big data technology.”

“We’re proud to become a Cloudera partner and to help leading enterprises make a better business case for investing in big data technologies.”
