Tata Consultancy Services, an IT services, consulting, and business solutions organization, has partnered with Cloudera, a provider of enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache Hadoop, certifying TCS' global team of big data experts through the Cloudera Certified Professional (CCP) program. TCS' products are also validated through the Cloudera Certified Technology Program (CCTP), which was created to simplify technology buyers' adoption of Apache Hadoop platforms and applications that have been tested, validated and certified to work with a Cloudera enterprise data hub.
"In our client engagements and market research, we find that big data is playing a central role in helping enterprises reimagine their businesses. Hadoop is fast becoming the platform of choice for big data analytics. We have seen Cloudera's pioneering contributions to the Hadoop ecosystem right from 2008 and have been partnering with them in several client engagements across several industries in the last few years," said Satya Ramaswamy, global head of TCS Digital Enterprise, in a statement. "We are excited about our partnership with Cloudera in bringing cost-effective big data analytics to our customers around the world by combining TCS' deep domain knowledge, big data products, and engineering strength with Cloudera's Hadoop distribution, innovation, and expertise."
TCS enables its customers to fully leverage Cloudera Enterprise data hubs through its extensive range of big data solutions, including strategy definition, use case identification, infrastructure setup and management, application development and maintenance, testing, advanced analytics, and predictive modeling. Moreover, TCS' Global Network Delivery Model (GNDM) leverages diverse technical, language, and domain-specific capabilities to deliver the highest quality, timely solutions.
"TCS has invested in Cloudera by forming the world's largest group of Cloudera-certified professionals, while also developing capabilities on Cloudera Enterprise," said Tom Reilly, CEO of Cloudera, in a statement. "Together, we have a strong track record of delivering results to customers on their big data journey. By working with TCS, customers can be confident that they have the right foundation and capabilities to reach success. We are proud to be partners with TCS and continue our combined growth in the years ahead."
In late June, Accenture forged a similar partnership with Cloudera.
