Happy to help with POC or anything else...
Apologies for the delay in responding and thanks for your interest for HDP on Power Systems.
Hortonworks and IBM are working on the release, which I hope will be available towards the end of this year.
It's possible to get involved as an early adopter if this is of interest to you?
There's also a webinar covering this topic later this month, details below:
