Last November, Cloudera finally exposed its true sentiments by introducing the Enterprise Data Hub in which Hadoop replaces the data warehouse, among other things, as the center of an organization’s data management strategy. In contrast, Hortonworks takes a hybrid approach, partnering with leading commercial data management and analytics vendors to create a data environment that blends the best of Hadoop and commercial software. In short, Cloudera offers revolution, Hortonworks evolution.
You know what? Both are right. To replace existing enterprise data warehouse, the first step is in cohabiting with them.
