RCG partners with Hortonworks

| June 22, 2015

Edison, NJ, May 29, 2015 — RCG Global Services today announced it has attained Gold level partnership with Hortonworks, demonstrating a commitment to helping organizations develop new applications and manage their Hadoop deployments.

Hadoop consultants and systems integrators are essential to the success of big data projects for the enterprise. Hadoop enables new opportunities for analytics and business intelligence, multi-use and multi-workload data processing with YARN, and new cost and time-saving efficiencies for IT. In all these cases Hadoop consultants and integrators are essential to the success of big data projects for the enterprise.

The Hortonworks model is unlike any other: committed to open source, building enterprise rigor for Hadoop, and enabling the ecosystem through the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). To earn the Hortonworks Gold level, partners must successfully prove their level of technology expertise

In support of clients’ entry in the Hadoop space, RCG has established an Emerging Technologies Lab to accommodate client data in a Proof-of-Concept (PoC) situation to demonstrate data science and analytics unique to their industries like Retail, Healthcare, Financial Services, Energy, and Hospitality.

RCG forayed into the Big Data phenomenon at a very early stage.  They are one of only a few Gold Status partners for Hortonworks, which demonstrates their large investment in Hadoop certifications.  RCG’s Emerging Technologies Lab in Chicago is unique in the vendor universe.

RCG’s Big Data PoC validates the business value of Big Data using client data in RCG’s Emerging Technologies Lab with Hadoop-based technologies and analytics. No kind of investment in Big Data hardware, software, or skills from client IT or business units is required for this. RCG’s Big Data PoC also provides business insights using client data. The PoC provides clients with access to RCG’s skills, experience, and facilities to jump-start the learning curve and application of Big Data analytics.
