TYSONS CORNER, VA, August 13, 2018 — Hortonworks (Nasdaq: HDP) has helped the Defense Department‘s Joint Improvised Threat Defeat Organization deploy an enterprise information technology platform built on the Hadoop data management software and other open source technologies, ExecutiveBiz reported July 30.

Federal News Radio reported July 27 that the open source project is in line with JIDO’s effort to deliver capabilities to warfighters and provide updates more quickly amid emerging threats.

“Having a consistent platform from which you are able to access your data is essential, and having something that is secure and able to be consistent is huge as you are building your data-driven applications and data-driven systems,” Shaun Bierweiler, vice president of Hortonworks’ U.S. public sector business, told the station.
