“The SCP Standards help guide Cloudera on our continued mission to provide the best mission-critical technical support for enterprise customers,” said Angus Klein, Vice President, Support at Cloudera. “Enterprise needs are constantly changing with the advancements in machine learning, analytics, and cloud. To receive the SCP certification three years in a row is an industry differentiator and demonstrates our tenacious commitment of using consistent best practices to deliver world-class support to our valued global customers.”

The SCP Standards serve as a benchmark of service excellence that help businesses ensure that the right organizational structures, tooling, and systems are in place to meet the evolving demands and business needs of customers.

“My colleague, Linden Hillenbrand, vice president, Customer Success, and I are both adamant about helping Cloudera to become even more customer-centric,” continued Klein. “We use several communication channels including Cloudera Engaged and our Voice of the Customer program where customers are invited to provide feedback on our products and services. We are religious about absorbing and acting on customers’ comments and SCP’s evaluation.”

Following the SCP Standards recertification audit, Cloudera has implemented several new customer service enhancements based on the findings from the annual certification process, including:

  • Launching Cloudera Support Hub (CSH), a custom-built case tracking system tuned for isolating customer issues faster and with higher accuracy
  • Reorganizing its Service Delivery Team into work groups aligned to customer use cases for improved collaboration and knowledge sharing resulting in a 20% reduction in time to resolution
