Our partnership with Cloudera has also enabled us to broaden our state-of-the-art products portfolio with the inclusion of Cloudera’s Enterprise Data Hub, providing customers with enterprise class scalability, quality and support,” said Yuki Moriyama, Deputy General Manager of AI Platform Division, NEC Corporation.
