Syncsort’s Mitch Seigle Visits “The Cube” at Hadoop Summit
What a busy, exciting June it has been at Syncsort! It started with CIO magazine featuring comScore, and their use of our DMExpress data integration software, in an article on taming Big Data. Mike Brown, comScore’s superstar CTO, says that Syncsort’s software made their Hadoop migration a piece of cake and is playing a central role in helping the company save 75 terabytes of data storage a month. Now that translates into BIG savings!
Next up was Hadoop Summit in San Jose where we formally announced our partnership with Hortonworks as well as DMExpress certification for the new Hortonworks Data Platform. If you haven’t already had the chance to check them out, I highly recommend the event recaps that my colleagues Tendu Yogurtcu and Keith Kohl checked in with right here on the Syncsort blog. The cherry on top of Hadoop Summit was Syncsort’s Vice President of Marketing and Product Management Mitch Seigle appearing on “The Cube” with Wikibon’s Jeff Kelly and SiliconANGLE’s John Furrier. It is well worth watching the entire segment, but we’ll soon be making available shorter clips of some of the top highlights.
Finally, we announced this week that Syncsort has joined the Greenplum Catalyst Developer Program and that DMExpress is now certified for high-performance loading of Greenplum Database. There was a lot of excitement and great coverage of the news. In fact, ZDNet blogger Andrew Brust took notice of Syncsort’s big month and Big Data 1-2 punch.
While it is always nice to head into the summer months of July and August with momentum, we aren’t finished yet. We have a lot of exciting things going on and it will be well worth your while to stay tuned.
