Epsilon Implements a Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub to Gain Meaningful Insights for Clients Into Customers' Brand Engagement

Leading Global Marketer Offers a Complete View of an Individual Faster and More Efficiently

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Cloudera, the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache Hadoop™, today announced that Epsilon, the global leader in creating customer connections that build brand and business equity, is powering Agility Harmony with a Cloudera enterprise data hub. Agility Harmony is Epsilon's next-generation digital messaging platform designed to enable marketers to create meaningful connections with customers by leveraging data stored and processed through Cloudera Enterprise. With the proliferation of channels and changing consumer behavior, it can be challenging and overwhelming for brands to gain a complete view of the individual customer. Through this partnership with Cloudera, Epsilon is able to provide marketers with that complete picture that will fuel relevant one-to-one communications across channels.

Epsilon provides complex modeling and analytic workloads with the data they manage to support programs on behalf of leading global brands across industry verticals such as retail, consumer packaged goods, automotive, financial services, healthcare and more. Epsilon needed a way to process unstructured data at scale and speed, an increasingly difficult task for relational databases. Now with Hadoop, Epsilon is able to use growing amounts of unstructured data to help clients -- all optimized in real-time.

"We were drawn to partnering with Cloudera because they share our focus on innovation and they offer scaling capabilities while maintaining reliability," said Bob Zurek, senior vice president, Products, Epsilon. "Leveraging Cloudera has helped us in a number of ways and we are confident in their commitment and support. Data security, reliability, and attentiveness are critically important to Epsilon and our clients."

Benefits of an Enterprise Data Hub
In an industry continually looking to manage costs, data storage is one of the first areas that companies consider reducing spend. With the volume of data increasing rapidly, costs associated with storing that data have grown exponentially. Hadoop is inherently more cost effective than legacy systems and approaches. Epsilon's relationship with Cloudera provides the company with the ability to seek and find insights in the most cost effective manner for clients.

"Epsilon is at the forefront of the digital marketing industry and by working with Cloudera they have been able to propel their business even further and provide insights for their clients that were not possible before," said Alan Saldich, vice president, Marketing, Cloudera. "An enterprise data hub alongside an enterprise data warehouse opens doors and provides opportunities that may have been too costly or time-consuming before."

A Cloudera-powered enterprise data hub delivers the most secure, managed, governed, and open data management platform to give customers a choice for storing, accessing and analyzing any amount and any kind of data in one centralized repository. Cloudera has all of the key attributes necessary for customers to make data the true focal point of any business.

Epsilon is using Sentry in its enterprise data hub as well as Impala and Cloudera Manager. Key partners that helped to ensure Epsilon's success include SAS and Tableau.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure.

We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
