Strategic partnership aims to enable enterprises to use big data and analytics to fuel business growth

Tata Communications has partnered with Cloudera to launch a new platform for big data, machine learning and analytics aimed at enterprises.

The strategic partnership will leverage Tata Comm’s global tier one network and cloud footprint, giving Cloudera’s machine learning and analytics engine the capabilities to provide enterprises with the quick capture, storage and analysis of data in various formats.

Analysts IDC predict that 163 zettabytes of data will be generated by 2025 – more than 10x that generated in 2016 – meaning enterprises need to manage more data than ever before.

The manged services for Big Data solution being developed by Cloudera and Tata Com tackles this challenge by enabling organisations to structure different types and volumes of data in order to drive connectivity and improve customer experience for enterprises.

“Enterprises are already capturing and storing the data that could fuel their growth, if managed efficiently and effectively. With Cloudera’s leadership in the fields of machine learning and advanced analytics and our network and cloud capabilities, managed services for Big Data will help enterprises tackle this data deluge by consolidating data from all sources, both on-premise and cloud-based, into a centralized big data platform,” said Srinivasan CR, SVP global product management & data centre services, Tata Communications. 

“Our solution provides enterprises with the scale, speed and expertise to quickly transform raw data into structured and meaningful insights that address business challenges.”

The solution will be hosted in tier three data centres in Mumbai, Singapore and the UK, incorporating Cloudera’s ready-to-deploy Enterprise Data Hub.

It is available in multi-tenant private cloud environments meaning it maintains enterprise-grade regulatory and privacy standards. It has a flexible pay-as-you-go cost model.

Mark Micallef, vice president, Asia Pacific and Japan at Cloudera, said: “Organizations are still relying on legacy solutions to deal with today’s challenge of large and growing amounts of data. The managed services offering for Big Data helps enterprises turn this into an opportunity, with a modern and integrated big data platform that deploys machine learning and advanced analytics. 

“Our strategic partnership with Tata Communications empowers organizations with a solution that derives real value from data and truly enables businesses with data-driven decision-making capabilities.”
