Announcing the 2019 Data Impact Awards

We are excited to be launching our first awards program together as the “New Cloudera.” Although the program is technically in its seventh year, as the first joint awards program, this year’s Data Impact Awards will span even more use cases, covering even more advances in IoT, data warehouse, machine learning, and more. The program recognizes organizations that are using Cloudera’s platform and services to unlock the power of data, with massive business and social impact.

Every year we are blown away by the incredible things our customers are doing with our products. Cloudera’s data superheroes design modern data architectures that work across hybrid and multi-cloud and solve complex data management and analytic use cases spanning from the Edge to AI. And the use cases truly are endless: from using predictive analytics to prevent millions of dollars in fraudulent transactions, to using data science to close the pay equity gap; from improving the customer experience to refining pharmaceutical R&D to develop life-saving drugs faster. Our customers dream big and do bigger.

We’re looking for your most innovative projects, the ones that have transformed your business or your industry. If you’ve democratized data within your company, we want to hear from you.

If you’re using predictive machine learning models to save time and increase productivity, we want to hear from you, too. If your data projects reach beyond the wildest corners of our imagination, submit your nomination!

Over the next few weeks, we will be recruiting an army of industry analysts and thought-leaders to be our judges for this year’s awards.
