NEC has launched the reinforced Data Platform for Hadoop (DPH), an integrated analytics platform for collecting, storing, processing and analyzing data.
NEC DPH is a pre-designed and pre-validated Hadoop appliance integrating with NEC's specialized hardware and "Hortonworks Data Platform", that was introduced by the Company last year.
The initial platform has already been deployed across a variety of sectors, ranging from the telecom sector to finance and manufacturing, claims NEC.
In addition to existing "Data Storage & Processing" capabilities that provide centralized management for structured and unstructured data in a common platform, NEC's reinforced DPH includes new features, such as "Data Collection" and "Data Analytics" to provide advanced analytics capabilities.
Data Collection includes real-time, secure and easy management of dataflow design, the accumulation and storage of a wide range of data from relational databases, and streaming systems, such as sensors and logs.
Data Analytics further enhance the value offered to customers by leveraging open-source-based analytics engines that can be integrated with cutting-edge AI technologies from 'NEC the WISE' in the future.
NEC will be providing professional services for helping customers solve their real-world business challenges.
NEC and its partner Hortonworks have also agreed to strengthen their collaboration in areas that include product development and sales expansion.
In addition to "Hortonworks Data Platform" and "Hortonworks DataFlow," NEC will start providing all Hortonworks products and services, such as their OSS-based cybersecurity solution "Hortonworks CyberSecurity Platform" for detecting security threats in real-time. Moreover, this partnership will enable NEC to distribute Hortonworks products and services worldwide.
