Technology services and outsourcing firm, Accenture, has joined forces with Cloudera, a specialist in analytic data management powered by Apache Hadoop, to give clients access to Cloudera’s enterprise data hub.

This big data platform could help clients to better utilise their big data and compete in today’s increasingly digital world.

Cloudera’s enterprise data hub is a central place for clients to store and analyse data, with the flexibility to run a variety of enterprise workloads – including batch processing, interactive SQL, enterprise search and advanced analytics. Through the new agreement, Accenture and Cloudera hope to accelerate the speed in which enterprises in all industries can intake, access and analyse data to enable real-time decision-making and data-driven outcomes.

To gain a competitive advantage from its enterprise data, an organisation must be able to quickly and efficiently operate with all available structured and unstructured data, ranging from text data created five years ago to social media data created five seconds ago. As companies are rapidly transitioning into becoming true digital businesses, they are looking to remodel their technology infrastructures. Some companies will consider Hadoop solutions such as Cloudera’s enterprise data hub that puts data at the heart of their data platform. This approach helps enterprises to pursue an enhanced speed to insight with manageability, governance and data protection that they require.

Narendra Mulani, senior MD, Accenture Analytics, part of Accenture Digital, said: “Accenture has a strong focus on big data and open source technologies like the Hadoop ecosystem, which includes data mobilisation, data management and data access at a large scale.

“Our new alliance with Cloudera further emphasizes our commitment to build an emerging technology ecosystem that complements our existing alliances, offering our clients the greatest opportunity to drive real business results from big data.”

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
