September 26, 2017

New innovations bring together operational, analytical and real-time applications at global scale

New York – September 26, 2017 -- MapR Technologies, Inc., a leader in delivering one platform for all types of data across every cloud, today at the Strata Data Conference announced breakthrough database innovations for rich data-intensive applications. With new advancements for developers that enable rich applications, in-place and continuous machine learning/AI and SQL capabilities, and global real-time data integration and microservices support, MapR continues to push the boundaries of data management.

"Xactly’s SPM Suite, predictive analytics and big data intelligence are the foundation for the sales programs of more than a 1,200 customers. Billions of transactions flow through our systems each quarter and we have handled more than $20 billion in incentive compensation payments in the last two years alone,” said Ron Rasmussen, CTO, Xactly Corporation. “If our systems aren’t running at maximum performance, the course of business slows and people don’t get paid. MapR understands that our database architecture is critical to our success and that of our customers. Their system provides the flexibility and integrated analytics required for Xactly to continue to build and scale SPM solutions that are unmatched in performance, scalability and uptime."

As part of the MapR Converged Data Platform, MapR Database enables faster time-to-market, always-on intelligent business processes and contextual user experiences. MapR Database supports multiple data models (document, wide column, key value, etc.) and unifies operations and analytics for in-place and continuous real time business insights. MapR Database can operate thousands of mission critical next gen applications with consistent ultra-low latencies and high scalability.

"Retro-fitting legacy databases in today’s big data environments presents challenges to organizations such as poor data performance, scale limitations, and data access restrictions.” said John L Myers, managing research director, Enterprise Management Associates, a Boulder, Colorado, based industry analyst firm. “Leveraging a one platform architecture, MapR Converged Data Platform enables organizations to efficiently process all data types bringing analytics and operations together with consistent scale, reliability and performance. Specifically, MapR Database capabilities help companies build a global multi-master database extending from the cloud to the edge and on-premises, accelerating data iterations and integrations for deploying next-generation online and mobile apps."
