Spark NZ's big data and analytics venture Qrious has become the first local managed service provider for global data and analytics heavyweight Cloudera.

Qrious said it is preparing to further extend its footprint in the big data market through the imminent launch of a new big data platform.

The Cloudera partnership completes a full end-to-end data offering which Qruious believes to be unique in New Zealand.

“Using Cloudera as the technology underpinning our big data platform means we are standing on the shoulders of giants," said Qrious CEO, David Leach.

"We are localising it for the needs of the New Zealand market, and then applying Qrious’ world class data analytics, data science and machine learning capability, along with the added value of unique and complementary data sources."

That combination can provide a genuine end-to-end data management and analytics solution for government and enterprise clients across New Zealand, Leach said.

Qrious, which Spark launched in 2014, isn’t yet revealing details of its data platform product, however, it will be hosted by Spark cloud services and datacentre provider Revera.

“We are launching our big data platform within months and are already talking to early adopters,” Leach, who joined Qrious in November from Orion Health, said.

Built on open source technology, the Cloudera platform offers one place to store, access, process, secure, and analyse all of a customer’s data in batch or real time – extending the value of existing investments and helping to unlock fundamental new ways to derive value.

Cloudera’s regional director for Australia and New Zealand, Shyam Srinivasan, said they saw a natural fit with Qrious.

“We believe Qrious is in a unique position in the New Zealand market… its data scientists, architects and engineers are world class and, coupled with the value of its unique data sources, customers are able to see success much quicker than previously,” Srinivasan said.

Leach says that Qrious sees the opportunity to be a game changer for New Zealand businesses that will help accelerate their data-driven journey.

“The pace of change is accelerating and driving increasing levels of new and disruptive competition. Harnessing the value of data to make better, faster business decisions and improve customer experience will give savvy businesses the edge they need to compete and stay relevant over the long term.”
