Top HP Partners Launch Haven Big Data Solutions


Six of Hewlett-Packard's top partners, including Avnet and Wipro Limited, have launched new solutions based on HP's Haven platform.

The new Haven offerings are among the first formal applications to be brought to market by 120 partners that have committed to shipping Haven solutions in what is shaping up to be a fast-moving big data solutions offensive from HP.

Among the new offerings launched at HP's Discover Conference in Barcelona Spain last week are a health-care analytics solution from distribution giant Avnet; a service analytics platform from India-based services giant Wipro; a threat intelligence solution from Accenture; a commercial risk assessment solution from Capgemini; an insider threat analysis solution from Deloitte; and an e-commerce predictive analytics solution from PwC.

"What we are really excited about is the uptake we are seeing from our partner community with what we are calling Haven 2.0," said John Knightly, vice president market development for HP Software Marketing. "The proof of success is the building of apps on the platform. This is a juggernaut!"

HP is pressing for even wider adoption among independent software vendors (ISVs) with a new developer program that includes a dedicated website aimed at educating and recruiting developers.

The new solution offerings come with a Haven platform update that includes Vertica 7.0 with beefed up analytics capabilities and a Flex Zone fast-track offering that lets partners quickly load and analyze big data; version 10.5 of Autonomy's IDOL product; and ArcSight 6.5c.

A new HP ConvergedSystem 300 for Vertica is also going to kick up the Haven effort a notch, said Knightly. The new Vertica ConvergedSystem features what HP is calling 50 to 100 times performance and 70 percent lower costs per terabyte than legacy data warehouses.

The ConvergedSystem 300 for Vertica fundamentally changes big data economics in the midmarket, which HP partners predominately serve, said Knightly.

"This is going to let partners deploy solutions in days versus months," he said. "This makes it super easy for customers and partners [to get into the big data market]. The new ConvergedSystem and software makes it a happy holiday scenario for our channel. They have a lot of good stuff to sell and get working on."
