BMC Joins the Hortonworks Technology Partner Program to Integrate Hadoop Workflows for the Enterprise

BMC Workload Automation Cuts Batch Processing Time and Integrates Workflows for Hortonworks’ Customers


Big data management for the enterprise received another booster shot today as BMC Software and Hortonworks announced a new partnership to help customers integrate and manage their Apache Hadoop deployments.

The partnership is fueled by BMC Control-M for Hadoop, a powerful, easy-to-use big data management framework that simplifies the creation of big data applications, automates batch processing for extremely large data sets, and accelerates integration of Hadoop and other business-critical enterprise application workflows. BMC Control-M for Hadoop is a purpose-built version of its market-leading workload automation software.

To strengthen the partnership, BMC announced that effective immediately BMC Control-M for Hadoop now supports Hortonworks Data Platform, the industry’s only 100-percent open source enterprise Hadoop distribution. The combined software offering works to empower customers with big data management products and services to help drive their businesses forward. Big data analysis is expected to become an $11 billion software and services market this year, growing at 50 percent annually, according to consultancy Wikibon.

Key Facts

  • Predictive analytics and intelligent monitoring of Hadoop application workflows help improve service delivery by detecting slowdowns and failures.
  • Hadoop applications are implemented faster by automating batch workflow creation and management using a drag-and-drop interface integrated with Hadoop projects.
  • Control-M integrates with Hadoop File System, Pig, Scoop, Hive, and MapReduce – eliminating the need to write scripts for these applications to automate workflow.

Big data analytics and management are foundational services of the modern technology component of the New IT, helping business and IT leaders monitor and analyze high-volume data to accelerate strategic decisions and make operational changes that ultimately enable new kinds of services for enterprise users and customers.
