FREMONT, CA: Saama Technologies, a data science services and solutions company, has partnered with Hortonworks, a provider of enterprise Apache Hadoop, to provide data analytics platform to insurance companies. The combined offering will assist insurance companies to quickly uncover and operationalise planned data assets and deploy pre-integrated analytics solutions across their companies.

With the data analytics platform, analysts, underwriters and actuaries will have direct access to the data in native format in a self-service mode. They will be able to surface and experiment with new data sources and combinations of data objects, increasing competitive edge for their companies.

Hortonworks offers Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), an enterprise-grade data administration platform that enables its customers to capture, store, process, and analyze increasing amounts of existing and new data types without the need to replace their existing data center infrastructure.

HDP powers a single view of customers which helps insurance companies to provide personalized customer experiences. Modern data architecture with HDP provides this single view and helps to acquire new customers. More and different data stored in HDP can replace incomplete sample data with abundant and accessible empirical data, mentioned Cindy Maike, General Manager, Insurance, Hortonworks, in a blog.
