Capgemini and Cloudera Extend Partnership to Help Organizations Accelerate Their Big Data Initiatives

Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, has today extended its partnership with Cloudera, the leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache™ Hadoop®, through the launch of two new offerings that combine Cloudera’s data management platform, Cloudera Enterprise, with Capgemini’s service and support.

The two offerings will help organizations to gain greater value from their data assets more quickly using the Cloudera Big Data platform:

1. A new “Enterprise Data Hub Accelerator” offering will help organizations more quickly and effectively execute their first Big Data projects, by providing a clear and complete roadmap on how to scale data governance, analytics and data platforms to become part of a full enterprise-wide Big Data strategy to aid business transformation.

  • The Enterprise Data Hub Accelerator addresses customers’ needs to better understand where they should start with Big Data Implementations, how to ensure success and value creation for their business users, and how to guarantee that the choices made will scale long term.
  • The solution combines Cloudera’s open-source, enterprise data management platform, with Capgemini’s best practices in Information Strategy and Transformation. Cloudera provides one centralized platform to manage all data in an agile and cost-efficient way so it can be integrated flexibly with existing infrastructure and tools. Capgemini works with the customer to identify business drivers, transform information governance and rethink analytics processes through a clearly defined roadmap, to help organizations define what they should do when.

2. The new “Data Science-as-a-Service” on the Cloudera platform provides anticipatory intelligence services such as: Supply Chain Risk Monitoring, Fraud and Anti Money Laundering, Brand Reputation Monitoring and Key Influencers Intelligence.

  • Using a Cloudera Enterprise platform and Capgemini’s Data Science and Analytics capabilities, as part of its Elastic Analytics solution, Capgemini is able to help organizations distinguish market noise from valuable business insights
  • This offer is addressing all aspects of Data Science and Analytics including data inventory and preparation; predictive and prescriptive modeling; classification and clustering, machine learning, simulation and optimization, visualization and deployment, without the complexity of having to develop Data Science skills in-house.

As part of the extended partnership, Capgemini is significantly accelerating its global investment in the Cloudera platform. To facilitate Big Data project execution a global reseller agreement between Cloudera and Capgemini will offer customers access to a ‘one stop shop’ for their Big Data projects. In addition Capgemini is ramping up training within its own delivery team with over 500 additional consultants to be trained in the next 18 months.

“In today’s world, consumers are empowered with data wherever they are; sensors are being bolted onto all the objects we interact with. Frontiers between the digital and bricks-and-mortar worlds are disappearing, so organizations’ business models are being disrupted. Addressing real business challenges such as managing the evolution of the Customer Experience or the impact of the Internet of Things requires Big Data,” said Manuel Sevilla, Group CTO Business Information Management, Capgemini. “Partnering closely with Cloudera allows us to accelerate the execution of Big Data projects.”

“As a leading provider of services, Capgemini has the expertise and experience to deliver on Big Data projects. They make it easy for companies to derive value from their Big Data investments,” said Tom Reilly, Chief Executive Officer, Cloudera. “Together, we are helping define the future of data management by enabling enterprise data hubs – one place to store all data for as long as desired in its original fidelity – and by ensuring that Big Data customers can benefit from Cloudera’s technology leadership and Capgemini’s services expertise.”

Capgemini and Cloudera first announced their global partnership in October 2013 for enterprise data management.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningf...
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...
In his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Bruce Swann, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Adobe Campaign, explored the key ingredients of cross-channel marketing in a digital world. Learn how the Adobe Marketing Cloud can help marketers embrace opportunities for personalized, relevant and real-time customer engagement across offline (direct mail, point of sale, call center) and digital (email, website, SMS, mobile apps, social networks, connected objects).
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new da...

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessi...
The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity. As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, exploreed the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and t...
Continuous processes around the development and deployment of applications are both impacted by -- and a benefit to -- the Internet of Things trend. To help better understand the relationship between DevOps and a plethora of new end-devices and data please welcome Gary Gruver, consultant, author and a former IT executive who has led many large-scale IT transformation projects, and John Jeremiah, Technology Evangelist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), on Twitter at @j_jeremiah. The discussion...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
