So, I failed at the first hurdle in trying to do this weekly, however let’s carry on regardless.

This week - new products from Cloudera and Hortonworks, a bunch of Hortonworks and Cloudera releases that got missed last time, plus a collection of blog posts I’ve been collecting for a while.

In terms of the new products from Cloudera and Hortonworks, we’ve seen Cloudera Data Science Workbench and Apache Metron formally released recently. I’m aiming to do tech summaries for both this week and we’ll look at these a bit closer.
