Hortonworks’ Shaun Bierweiler Talks Enterprise Open Source Tools’ Use in Emergency Mgmt

Shaun Bierweiler

TYSONS CORNER, VA, December 20, 2018 — Shaun Bierweiler, vice president of Hortonworks‘ (Nasdaq: HDP) U.S. public sector business, has said enterprise open source tools such as Apache NiFi and Hadoop work to support emergency and disaster response operations by deriving actionable intelligence from data, ExecutiveBiz reported Dec. 3.

Bierweiler, who also serves as president of Hortonworks Federal, noted in an interview published Nov. 28 that some tools support data in motion, which he said is important for emergency management because data from disparate sources can automatically move to the involved agencies’ own environments to inform their operations as well as provide a historical basis for more efficient strategies in the future.

The company leverages the open source community to make stored data “enterprise ready” as well as “safe” for government missions, he added.
