Dell EMC and Intel commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying Dell | Cloudera Apache Hadoop Solutions, accelerated by Intel. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of the Hadoop solution on their organizations.


To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with an implementation of a Dell | Cloudera Apache Hadoop Solution, accelerated by Intel, Forrester interviewed several customers with multiple years of experience using Hadoop. Since many companies have different requirements and needs, Dell offers multiple Hadoop solutions.

The three-year risk adjusted results include: 

97% ROI*
$58K Net Present Value 
6 month payback 

*A 97% ROI equates to $1.97 of benefit for every $1.00 spent.
