Telkomsel Announces Hadoop-Centered Partnership with Cloudera
April 13, 2015
Cloudera, already one of the most relied upon firms in the world when it comes to managing big data platforms, recently announced it has been selected by Telkomsel (News - Alert) to support the company’s evolution when it comes to voice and SMS based business to one that offers sensibly priced broadband connections. This announcement is big for Cloudera, considering Telkomsel is the largest mobile operator in Indonesia with more than 140 million subscribers.
One of the reasons Telkomsel picked Cloudera is because the firm is quite familiar with Apache Hadoop. When Telkomsel started looking for a Big Data partner in order to help roll out its broadband services, Cloudera stood out. The firm is known as having a maturity level when it comes to Hadoop distributing that is second to none. The firm also has a market share that Telkomsel finds quite attractive.
"One of the first use cases we looked at was storing xDR data for longer data retention. With 100 percent data growth annually, Hadoop is the best option to offload the data from the EDW," said Metra C. Utama, vice president of IT Planning at Telkomsel in a recent statement. "We're looking forward to the next phase of adoption of our Cloudera environment, which will drive new analytical insights. The level of ongoing support and day-to-day interaction we have with the Cloudera team will expedite the advancement of our platform, and we look forward to the additional benefits this will offer our business.”
As the partnership first gets off the ground, Telkomsel will be running Cloudera in an on-premise environment, and will continue exploring the various uses of Hadoop. The firm is looking at also using Apache Hive, Apache Spark, and Impala. The firm is currently using data ingestion in order to take advantage of Apache Sqoop, Apache Flume and Apache Kafka.
