IDC predicts that 163 zettabytes of data will be generated by 2025, which is ten times the data generated in 2016.

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, Senior Vice President, 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 suite includes key features such as data lifecycle management across acquisitions, awareness and modelling, analytics and governance, managed analytics and visualization tools and professional services to help enterprises define, design and implement their big data strategy.

“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,” said Mark Micallef, vice president, Asia Pacific and Japan at Cloudera.
