Stamford, CT – September 5, 2012 – iTrend LLC, a provider of big data analytics tools, today announced that it joined the Hortonworks Technology Partner Program to extend iTrend business intelligence tools to integrate with the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP). Powered by Apache Hadoop, HDP is a 100% open source data management platform that lets you store, process, and manage data in virtually any format and at any scale. As part of the Partner Program, iTrend will receive access to Hortonworks software and technology updates, enabling development of distributed analytics services on the Hortonworks Data Platform. iTrend will provide technology feedback and will collaborate with Hortonworks to enhance HDP and further the adoption of Apache Hadoop.
