Ultra Tendency has been using Cloudera in customer projects since 2011, and thus even before the establishment of the Cloudera presence in Central EMEA in 2014.

Hence, we have specialized in Cloudera technology for almost a decade. This very close partnership is demonstrated by Ultra Tendency being the only Cloudera Gold Partner in Central EMEA. Since Ultra Tendency has unique capabilities, Cloudera leverages us as a complement to its own professional services organization. Ultra Tendency delivers some of the most demanding projects at some of the most important Cloudera customers in Germany, DACH, EMEA and worldwide.

Ultra Tendency is the only Cloudera partner in the Central EMEA region that has signed the required subcontractor contract with Cloudera Inc. Typical tasks are: streaming applications, data lake use cases, extensive batch processing, predictive analytics and IoT use cases. Ultra Tendency currently has 10 Cloudera certified employees; however, since the lion share of our revenue is based on Cloudera, the entire 68-FTE strong delivery organization masters the various disciplines related to Cloudera (from architecture to operations). We work closely with Cloudera product development in the United States to meet the needs of common strategic customers like Europe’s largest telco.


If customer requirements demand extensions of the current Cloudera portfolio, Ultra Tendency implemented them frequently before Cloudera publishes them itself (e.g. Parcel for Apache Nifi for CDH customers, Kubernetes, Spark on Kubernetes). Ultra Tendency is the first Cloudera partner trained on the new CDP (Cloudera Data Platform) distribution in Central EMEA, de facto Cloudera confirmed that we were the first rolling it out at a customer in whole EMEA. Robin has weekly and biweekly alignments with the key stakeholders of Cloudera; including Head of Professional Services EMEA, Head of Professional Services Staffing EMEA, Head of Solution Engineering CEMEA and the Partner & Alliances Manager CEMEA.

"This close and unique partnership ensures that our customers can be sure to be served by the best in class team!

We are looking forward to the next years with YOU Cloudera, with YOU our dear customers and of course with YOU our future customers!"
