  1. Hello , I have a question . It means that IBM Big SQL will not support any more Data Hortonworks Plataform ?

      I am assuming that you are asking if Big SQL support includes HDP support as well. If I got your question right, No. Db2 Big SQL is a standalone product and it includes support only for Db2 Big SQL. Similarly HDP support is separate. Unless you bought a package that includes both.
