Firm Lauds MapR for Commitment to R&D to Create a Next-Gen Database for Most Enterprise Uses

Santa Clara, Calif. – July 16, 2018 -- MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the industry's leading data platform for AI and Analytics, was recently recognized by Constellation Research for its commitment to research and development and architectural innovation to support next-generation database applications. In the recent profile, Constellation Research measures MapR Database against Constellation's seven criteria for a next-generation database and concludes that MapR is a strong contender to be a partner of choice for enterprises, not only for the traditional document and NoSQL space, but also for the needs that arise regarding real-time data flows and keeping data in place for analytic functions.

"MapR initially focused on the document database market but expanded the offering to the point where it can address document, key value, graph/time series and streaming application needs," said Holger Mueller, vice president and principal analyst, Constellation Research. "Combined with investments into global capabilities as well as more advanced high-availability (HA) and disaster recovery options, MapR Database can grow within enterprises, starting from single-use cases to powering multiple next-generation applications with diverse requirements and load profiles. MapR-DB's performance capabilities make it an attractive choice for CXOs."

Key differentiators of MapR Database cited in the profile include:

  • Multi-model flexibility. MapR Database has native multi-model capabilities that are competitive and, in some cases, even advanced in comparison to the dedicated, single-use case competitors.

  • Scalability. MapR Database is a strong contender in performance-critical, next-generation application use cases. With publicly visible involvement in large-scale projects, MapR is getting on the radar of more CXOs.

  • Global support. Businesses are becoming more global every day, and new tools and databases need to support global scenarios from language and currency support to replication and high-availability concerns, and MapR is doing well in these areas.

  • Large-scale project record. MapR has been involved in many large-scale projects. When a vendor can scale to the needs of government in one of the most populated countries in the world, it gives CXOs assurance regarding the performance demands of their own enterprise.

"Organizations are building next-gen applications that provide rich, contextual digital user experiences to attract, engage, and retain customers. Companies are also spending significant efforts on modernizing the core business processes, uncovering real-time insights, and enabling automated decision making to cut down costs and innovate faster," said Bill Peterson, vice president industry solutions, MapR. "MapR-DB, an integrated option in the MapR Data Platform, is an extremely scalable, reliable, globally distributed database for building powerful, intelligent, and mission-critical applications. MapR Database is one of the few databases that can handle both system-of-record and streaming data in the same system – making it the database of choice for next-gen applications."
