PALO ALTO, Calif. & PARIS -- July 8, 2014

Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and
outsourcing services, has today extended its partnership with Cloudera, the
leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache™ Hadoop®,
through the launch of two new offerings that combine Cloudera’s data
management platform, Cloudera Enterprise, with Capgemini’s service and
support.

The two offerings will help organizations to gain greater value from their
data assets more quickly using the Cloudera Big Data platform:

1. A new “Enterprise Data Hub Accelerator” offering will help organizations
more quickly and effectively execute their first Big Data projects, by
providing a clear and complete roadmap on how to scale data governance,
analytics and data platforms to become part of a full enterprise-wide Big Data
strategy to aid business transformation.

  *The Enterprise Data Hub Accelerator addresses customers’ needs to better
    understand where they should start with Big Data Implementations, how to
    ensure success and value creation for their business users, and how to
    guarantee that the choices made will scale long term.
  *The solution combines Cloudera’s open-source, enterprise data management
    platform, with Capgemini’s best practices in Information Strategy and
    Transformation. Cloudera provides one centralized platform to manage all
    data in an agile and cost-efficient way so it can be integrated flexibly
    with existing infrastructure and tools. Capgemini works with the customer
    to identify business drivers, transform information governance and rethink
    analytics processes through a clearly defined roadmap, to help
    organizations define what they should do when.

2. The new “Data Science-as-a-Service” on the Cloudera platform provides
anticipatory intelligence services such as: Supply Chain Risk Monitoring,
Fraud and Anti Money Laundering, Brand Reputation Monitoring and Key
Influencers Intelligence.

  *Using a Cloudera Enterprise platform and Capgemini’s Data Science and
    Analytics capabilities, as part of its Elastic Analytics solution,
    Capgemini is able to help organizations distinguish market noise from
    valuable business insights
  *This offer is addressing all aspects of Data Science and Analytics
    including data inventory and preparation; predictive and prescriptive
    modeling; classification and clustering, machine learning, simulation and
    optimization, visualization and deployment, without the complexity of
    having to develop Data Science skills in-house.

As part of the extended partnership, Capgemini is significantly accelerating
its global investment in the Cloudera platform. To facilitate Big Data project
execution a global reseller agreement between Cloudera and Capgemini will
offer customers access to a ‘one stop shop’ for their Big Data projects. In
addition Capgemini is ramping up training within its own delivery team with
over 500 additional consultants to be trained in the next 18 months.

“In today’s world, consumers are empowered with data wherever they are;
sensors are being bolted onto all the objects we interact with. Frontiers
between the digital and bricks-and-mortar worlds are disappearing, so
organizations’ business models are being disrupted. Addressing real business
challenges such as managing the evolution of the Customer Experience or the
impact of the Internet of Things requires Big Data,” said Manuel Sevilla,
Group CTO Business Information Management, Capgemini. “Partnering closely with
Cloudera allows us to accelerate the execution of Big Data projects.”

“As a leading provider of services, Capgemini has the expertise and experience
to deliver on Big Data projects. They make it easy for companies to derive
value from their Big Data investments,” said Tom Reilly, Chief Executive
Officer, Cloudera. “Together, we are helping define the future of data
management by enabling enterprise data hubs – one place to store all data for
as long as desired in its original fidelity – and by ensuring that Big Data
customers can benefit from Cloudera’s technology leadership and Capgemini’s
services expertise.”

Capgemini and Cloudera first announced their global partnership in October
2013 for enterprise data management.
