I am proud to say it has been an incredible year for MapR. The company continues to prosper; we delivered record year over year revenue growth, added many new customers to the MapR family, and continue to experience high levels of customer satisfaction and retention. We have developed significant new partnerships and added incredibly talented new employees. All of these successes have occurred on top of continued strong product innovation and new patents issued for our Data Platform.

Ultimately, the success of any company is directly tied to its ability to attract great customers, partners, and outstanding employees. We are very fortunate to have all three!

To our customers, we thank you for entrusting MapR with your most valued asset, your data. It is a privilege for us to work with our global customers, large and small, to solve critical business challenges and build next generation platforms and applications using our unique platform. We do not take for granted the confidence and trust you place in us every single day. On behalf of the entire company, we value your business and will continue to work hard to earn it every day.

To our partners, I want to say thank you for choosing to work with us. Together we are making a real difference in how our joint customers can use cutting edge technology in their business. The opportunities for doing more together are large and we value our partnership.

To our employees, you continue to pour your hearts and soul into the business. Without fail, you always rise to the challenges offered by our customers, partners, and leadership team. Whatever the task, you find a way to get it done. As a team, throughout the world, we all strive to do what’s best for our customers, driving value and ensuring their success. However, it is more than the hard work and dedication. It is the incredible can-do attitude with which you roll up your sleeves and tackle challenges that fuels our success and potential as a company. MapR is better and stronger because of you, and my thanks go out to each and every one of you.

The achievements of the past year provide a solid foundation for continued success; it is an exciting time to be a part of MapR. For our customers, we will continue to innovate and deliver the best technology. To our partners, you will find us to be even more committed to your success. For our employees, there will continue to be more opportunities for you to make a real difference, with our customers, our partners and certainly within our company.
