Cloudera launches SaaS platform for the data warehouses

Lastly for this week, a software company, Cloudera has a fully managed software as a service (SaaS) version of its data platform which it claims is more open than rivals in the over-crowded market.

The SaaS platform is referred to as Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) One, and it was initially available only on AWS, as Cloudera promises analytics and data exploration in a single platform.

Cloudera merged with Hortonworks in 2018 after both firms had ridden the wave of the big-data-on-Hadoop hype. As its selling point, Cloudera claims that this CDP is more open to giving customers choice over the tools they use to manage and analyze their data.
