WPS delivers easy access and powerful analytics for Hadoop using SAS and R languages

LONDON, UK – 11 October 2016 – World Programming today announced that its WPS industrial analytics and data science platform software has been certified on Cloudera Enterprise 5.

Certification by Cloudera provides assurance that enterprise-grade WPS software is fully-supported by both World Programming and Cloudera when WPS is used within a Cloudera environment.

WPS software provides a consistent, reliable, high-performance analytics platform offering the choice of SAS and R languages. The certified combination of WPS software on Cloudera simplifies access to Hadoop data for analysts and data scientists, avoiding the need to learn complicated infrastructure technologies and retaining focus on the key task of understanding data. Those wishing to bring the benefits of big data and Hadoop technologies into existing analytics environments now have a low-risk entry while maintaining the existing core analytics capabilities their business depends on.

“We have worked with Cloudera for some time now and we are pleased to provide official WPS product support to our customers that choose to use Cloudera for their Big Data initiatives,” said Thor List, Product Manager at World Programming. “Cloudera is a great technology partner to work with and we look forward to further developing our Hadoop feature set.”

Cloudera has established a market-leading position as the dominant modern analytic platform based on Apache Hadoop. Cloudera certification is essential for any commercial software seeking to operate with Hadoop.

“The certification of WPS empowers Cloudera users to quickly and easily develop analytics applications whilst taking advantage of their existing workflows and workloads — written in SAS and R — to maximise value from an enterprise data hub,” said Tim Stevens, Vice President of Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera.
