“Hadoop is a constantly evolving ecosystem, so we purposely created an open architecture that allows us the flexibility to always provide businesses with the best future-proof technologies and capabilities,” said Stefan Groschupf, CEO of Datameer. “We want businesses to focus on getting to the fastest time to insight and implementing business value rather than on the technical details.”
