Join our experts for live weekly demos 

Find out CDP's latest features and capabilities and get answers to pressing questions by joining Cloudera product experts in live weekly demos. 

Learn how Cloudera DataFlow (CDF) enables enterprises to connect to any data source anywhere, then process and deliver it to any destination (system, software, or workflow).

The demos show how straightforward it is to deploy, monitor, manage, and auto-scale data flows in production; and demonstrates how new data flows can be quickly built using a no-code flow designer or easily customized from pre-built flow templates.

Key takeaways:

  • CDF standardizes tools for reusability
  • CDF simplifies & accelerates onboarding and managing of new data sources
  • CDF streamlines operations to deploy, manage, monitor, secure, and auto-scale data flows

Next Stop - Building a Data Pipeline from Edge to Insight

By Tui Leauanae and Nicolas Pelaez

This blog series follows the manufacturing, operations and sales data for a connected vehicle manufacturer as the data goes through stages and transformations typically experienced in a large manufacturing company on the leading edge of current technology.

Digital Transformation is a Data Journey From Edge to Insight

By Tui Leauanae, David LeGrand, and Nicolas Pelaez

This is the first in a six-part blog series that outlines the data journey from edge to AI and the business value data produces along the journey. The data journey is not linear, but it is an infinite loop data lifecycle – initiating at the edge, weaving through a data platform, and resulting in business imperative insights applied to real business-critical problems that result in new data-led initiatives.

How to Connect Go Applications to Cloudera Operational Database

The Cloudera Operational Database (COD) experience is a managed dbPaaS solution. It can auto-scale based on the workload utilization of the cluster and will be adding the ability to auto-tune (better performance within the existing infrastructure footprint) and auto-heal (resolve operational problems automatically) later this year.
