Novetta and Hortonworks Partner to Deliver 360-Degree Views and Unique Visibility into Relationships Across All Enterprise Hadoop Data

Novetta announced that it has joined the Hortonworks(R) Technology Partner Program and has successfully completed testing and has achieved Hortonworks Certification for Novetta Identity Analytics. Novetta Identity Analytics with Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), empowers frustrated Business Analysts with faster access to unlimited types of enterprise data to enable more confident, data-driven decisions based on the unification of entities and their relationships. By joining the Hortonworks Technology Partner Program, Novetta will work to enable and accelerate the deployment of the modern data architecture, integrating with the Hortonworks Data Platform--the industry's only 100% open source Hadoop distribution, explicitly architected, built, and tested for enterprise-grade deployments. Novetta's customers can now benefit from integration with Apache Hadoop for enhanced linear scalability, application manageability, governance, and security. Novetta Identity Analytics builds trust by preserving data integrity and empowering multiple teams and processes to quickly derive value from the same data. It provides Business Analysts a central, multi-dimensional view of the entities across the data silos -- people, locations, organizations, assets, products, events -- and uncovers the relationships within and among those entities to support use cases such as customer intimacy, churn prediction, risk profiling, and fraud analysis and detection. Novetta Identity Analytics uses an adaptive process to unify all types of data, regardless of schema, and allows analysts to look at their data in entirely new ways. Users no longer need to move or alter their data; they can now connect the dots between vast sets of Enterprise-wide data in their Data Lake.
