DURHAM, N.C., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Open Software Integrators, LLC (OSI), the open source professional services company, today announced a partnership with Hortonworks, one of the leading Apache Hadoop players in the big data market.

Hortonworks develops, distributes and supports the only 100% open source distribution of Apache Hadoop explicitly architected, built and tested for enterprise grade deployments.  Formed by the original architects, builders and operators of Hadoop, Hortonworks stewards the core and delivers the critical services required by the enterprise to reliably and effectively run Hadoop at scale. Hortonworks vice president of business development, Mitch Ferguson states, "We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Open Software Integrators and are eager for them to provide big data solutions that include Hortonworks Data Platform to a variety of industries. They are a leader in the open source space and will make a great addition to our team of partners."

Open Software Integrators is a professional services company with a strong background in open source and a commitment to the community. OSI specializes in big data consulting for a diverse clientele and is thrilled to now provide solutions surrounding Hadoop. OSI president, Andrew C. Oliver states.  "To some degree this feels like a reunion.  Hortonworks is backed by some of the same minds I worked with at JBoss. It is a pleasure to work with Hortonworks and Hadoop, the leading platform for big data.  This partnership will allow us to go further in helping companies make a transition from thinking of data, as something tactical you have to store, to something strategic you use to plan and get answers. As someone who has spent the better part of his career in open source, it pleases me that the big disruptive movements in the industry continued to be dominated by open source solutions like Hadoop."

OSI has experience with providing professional solutions in the education, financial, healthcare, gaming and non-profit space. OSI will provide systems integration, consulting and support for Hortonworks.
