Deloitte and Cloudera tackle Ireland’s big data dilemma

Deloitte Ireland and software provider Cloudera have signed an alliance and reseller agreement to tackle Irish businesses’ big data headaches.

Deloitte Ireland and software provider Cloudera  have signed an alliance and reseller agreement to tackle Irish businesses’ big data headaches.

The agreement will help Irish businesses take advantage of the open source nature of Apache Hadoop software to process large data sets, as opposed to being locked-in to hardware vendors. It follows a successful roll-out of Cloudera’s platform with numerous Irish clients, including a major public sector body, global insurers and banks, and will see Deloitte become Cloudera’s premier channel to the Irish market.

Deloitte identified that Irish businesses were struggling with big data issues, such as crunching large numbers, managing new forms of unstructured data and data extraction tasks.

Simon Murphy, head of technology consulting at Deloitte Ireland, said: “We’ve seen huge growth in the big data space and the intersection between big data, blockchain and the Internet of Things. The combination of Cloudera’s software and tools and Deloitte’s business insight, financial expertise and technology capability is proving very strong and impactful for clients.”

David Pieterse, vice president EMEA at Cloudera, said: “I’m enthused about the partnership we have formed with Deloitte Ireland. Our work to date clearly demonstrates the business value that is being delivered through the adoption of Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark and the latest open source technologies.

The alliance agreement will see Deloitte and Cloudera working on further opportunities in Ireland, building on the companies’ successful existing relationships in the UK, Germany and the US.
