These orgs use these information from ensuring compliance and cost reduction to customer intimacy and competitive advantage. According to Teddy Sumulong, Managing Director of Computrade, Cloudera was on his radar for the past 3 years but he waited for the right opportunity to partner with them. These days, companies have started to adapt big data to their businesses, so Sumulong chose to bring in Cloudera to be its partner in the Philippines which he considers the “LeBron James” of Big Data.
