2015年2月17日、米国カリフォルニア州サンフランシスコ発: ビッグデータ分野の業界リーダー各社は、業界団体として ODP を結成することを発表しました。今回この発表を行ったのは、ODPのプラチナ(Platinum)メンバーのPivotal、ゼネラル・エレクトリック (GE)、Hortonworks 、IBM、Infosys、SAS、大手国際通信企業およびゴールド(Gold)メンバーのAltiScale、Capgemini、CenturyLink、EMC、Splunk、Verizon Enterprise Solutions、Teradata、VMwareです。ODPは、 Apache Hadoop® エコシステムからのオープンソース ソフトウェアを基盤にしたビッグデータ テクノロジーを普及促進するとともに、Apache Hadoopエコシステムを構成しているベンダー各社間におけるテストを最適化する活動を展開します。ODPの活動により、企業のデータ 駆動型 アプリケーションの構築や導入の能力が高められます。

既存のビッグデータ テクノロジーが企業の関心を引き付けている環境を背景に、ODPメンバーの業界リーダー各社は、それぞれが協力し、ビッグデータの普及と生産性向上を支援します。今回のODPイニシアチブにおいて、まずメンバー各社はApache Hadoopのコアユースケースに焦点を当てたソリューションの開発と活用に注力します。ODPは、Apache Hadoopのテスト済みのリファレンスコア、Apache Ambari、関連するApacheソースアーチファクトへのアクセスを提供します。これにより、アップストリームとダウンストリーム両方の検証プロセスが簡素化され、「test once, use everywhere (1回のテストで、どこでも使用可能)」なコアプラットフォームが実現されます。

ODPは、Apacheの具体的なプロジェクトに直接取り組み、Apache Software Foundation(ASF)のガイドラインに従いアイデアやコードの部分で貢献していきます。ODPにとって、この活動には、メンバー各社がエンタープライズレベルのニーズを満たすというゴールに向けて、幅広いApacheプロジェクトおよび他のオープンソース ライセンスに基づくビッグデータ プロジェクトを通じてコラボレーションを展開できるという大きなメリットがあります。ODPは、一連の標準オープンソース テクノロジー とバージョンの普及促進に取り組んでいく予定です。これにより、ビッグデータ ソリューション間の互換性が高められるとともに、アプリケーションやツールをあらゆる準拠システムと統合し実行するプロセスが簡素化されます。

Supporting Quotes from Platinum Member Founding Sponsors

John Magee, Chief Marketing Officer, GE Software

“Analytic insights from industrial big data are transforming sectors such as energy, healthcare and transportation, and GE is focused on enabling our customers to take full advantage of the productivity and efficiency gains made possible by the Industrial Internet. GE is uniting with other technology leaders to promote open-source-based standards that will help customers better manage and gain insight from their data. The Open Data Platform will foster compatibility and interoperability that will accelerate innovation and adoption of new data-driven solutions.”

Shaun Connolly, vice president of corporate strategy, Hortonworks

“The best way to accelerate innovation and adoption of platform technologies like Hadoop is through an open source model. The Open Data Platform initiative will rally both enterprise end users and vendors around a well-defined common core platform against which big data solutions can be qualified. This will free up the broader big data ecosystem to focus on data-driven applications that deliver proactive insights for businesses.”

Beth Smith, General Manager, Analytic Platform, IBM

“As a founding member of the Open Data Platform Initiative, we're excited to be part of the expanding community collaborating to shape and promote open source standard technologies for Hadoop. IBM has been a long time open source leader and community participant. With this announcement, we continue this tradition to accelerate Hadoop adoption as part of our broader analytics and big data architecture, enabling our clients, and ecosystem of partners, to infuse insight everywhere.”

Navin Budhiraja, Head Architecture and Technology, Infosys

“Infosys is seeing rapid adoption of open source software in the world’s largest enterprises across all major industry segments. As all businesses strive to become digital, they see an increasing need for a platform that can support real-time and actionable insights, self service exploration, and fluid data schemas to quickly adapt to the dynamic business needs. This will require them to deploy new web-scale architectures, and the adoption of these modern architectures can be greatly accelerated if they are based on open standards, and easy access to trained talent. Open Data Platform will create such an ecosystem, preserving the rapid innovation cycles of open source software, while still providing the benefits of broad vendor support and interoperability.”

Sundeep Madra, vice president, Data Product Group, Pivotal

“Just as Pivotal and industry leaders focused the open source community around a common platform for the cloud, the Open Data Platform will rally an industry around a common platform for big data. This foundational step will provide a well-defined, mature, predictable and interoperable core to build on, furthering enterprises to adopt the best big data and analytical software to support data driven applications.”

Craig Rubendall, VP of Platform R&D, SAS

“Hadoop and the ecosystem around it have been built on new ways to attack big problems. SAS remains committed to innovation in big data analytics and to providing high-quality software that our customers can count on. SAS’ participation in the Open Data Platform Alliance aligns with these commitments, and will benefit the increasing number of organizations – and SAS customers – that are turning to Hadoop to store and process big data. With SAS software managing and analyzing data from Hadoop, our customers can solve their most pressing challenges – better interacting with their customers, fighting fraud, managing risk, improving product quality and more.”

Raymie Stata, CEO, Altiscale

“Apache Hadoop is an interrelated ecosystem of solutions that serve the greater purpose of providing a broad platform for big data processing and analysis. As the business value of Apache Hadoop is increasingly recognized by enterprises, the need grows for a rigorously tested, consistent, well-defined release of this ecosystem. While the Apache Software Foundation continues in its critical role of spearheading the development of new capabilities for each of the Hadoop ecosystem components, the Open Data Platform will serve as a complementary body, providing a proven base against which product and service provider companies can certify enterprise-class solutions. We at Altiscale are excited to be contributing to this important effort.”

Steve Jones, Global VP of Big Data, Capgemini

“Information and Insight is the competitive differentiation of a modern company, which means they need to be able to drive new innovations more rapidly than at any time in history. With the Open Data Platform we see an initiative that allows us to focus on business value and outcomes and that will help our clients adopt Hadoop with both confidence and pace. We see it as important that the Hadoop ecosystem can thrive and we look forward to helping the Open Data Platform community grow and flourish.”

Gary Gauba, President CenturyLink Cognilytics

“Data is key to unlocking value in business today more than ever before. Those companies that invest wisely in their ability to tame and utilize their data can reduce costs, improve operational efficiency, drive new revenue and compete more effectively at market speed. Transforming to become a data-driven organization requires not only the data and infrastructure, but also the analytics and advanced predictive algorithms to solve key business problems. CenturyLink is excited to join other industry leaders in developing a robust, scalable and enterprise-grade open platform. It is time to lift ‘Big Data’ out of IT and into the world of solving the next big business problem.”
