Hewlett-Packard made significant progress this week to establish itself as a player in the market for big data products and services.
This week the company's Enterprise Services Group launched a cloud-based analytics-as-a-service offering aimed at letting customers easily test-drive big data solutions. The service includes data models, connectors and accelerators combined with technical expertise, all based the vendor's Haven big data platform.
HP this week also said that Haven is itself gaining momentum among the company's partner base, with 120 solution providers now signed up to sell at least one piece of the Haven portfolio. Haven was launched three months ago as the core of the company's big data initiative.
