I would be remiss in discussing how open source is getting a higher enterprise profile if I didn’t mention the announcement made by SAP’s Aiaz Kazi at the sold out SparkSummit event that SAP HANA has a ready to go certified Databricks distribution.
Coming on the same day that Alteryx and Databricks announced a co-innovation and go to market strategy, this additional announcement provides an interesting backdrop against which to assess the progress of the open source ‘big data’ analytics movement alongside the part that established application vendors can play.
Ion Stoica, CEO of Databricks positions this announcement as:
“SAP HANA is both an incredibly powerful and fast analytics engine, as well as a repository for some of the most valuable enterprise data by virtue of the enterprise applications that it helps run. This integration will help enable the large and growing community of Hadoop and Spark developers and applications to harness these capabilities immediately via Spark as well as extend the reach of SAP HANA.”
