Face to face in the news:
2014 - Cloudera bought data-visualization startup DataPad to take on Pivotal
Cloud-based big data platform Cloudera has acquired a data-visualization startup DataPad which specializes in data analysis using the Python programming language. As Hadoop competition heats up, Cloudera might be ramping up its Python tooling in order to attract more data scientists and developers (DataPad co-founders are known in the data science community for having developed a Python-based data analysis library Pandas). It's not surprising considering the billions of dollars up for play in the commercial Hadoop market. Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR, Pivotal and more are all trying to win over as many users as they can for their respective flavors of Hadoop and general big data infrastructure. Spreading the cheerleading base beyond IT staff and systems architects, to include the people actually developing applications and doing data analysis within the company, is a good way to help ensure your stuff is the stuff that gets used.
2014 - Pivotal brings its cloud services to Mobile to keep up with Cloudera
Pivotal, the enterprise cloud platform, is launching new services for mobile development that are designed to work side-by-side with the company’s previously announced data services. The new CF Mobile Service will include push notifications, an API gateway and data-sync services. The service also offers IT the ability to set different policies and service level agreements to ensure that the data remain under the enterprise’s control. Pivotal CF is based on the company’s open source Cloud Foundry PaaS. Given its heritage, it’s no surprise that Pivotal CF supports a wide range of open-source tools (and especially databases), including database services like MongoDB, Riak, Apache Cassandra and the Neo4j graph database.
