This is a perfect canvas for building equally reliable systems for big data challenges.”

This partnership offers our mutual customers a highly robust big data solution to gain new insights into their customers, operations and markets,” said Tim Stevens, vice president, Business and Corporate Development, Cloudera. “What makes Unico stand out is their ability to take a strategic view of the customers’ business and their collaborative approach to co-creating truly innovative system solutions, based on their deep domain knowledge and the agility of a niche player”.
