Recent research reveals MapR customers on average will earn a three-year return on investment (ROI) of 382%

MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the industry’s only converged data platform, today announced that the MapR Converged Data Platform continues to help customers leverage new big data technologies for augmenting the understanding of their business and to also incorporate that insight into operations as it happens.

MapR customers have received industry accolades for their achievements with managing real-time data in their deployed environments. Datanami, a leading IT publication, has presented Big Data All-Star awards to outstanding leaders in big data from several companies, including Comcast, comScore, Experian, IRI, National Institute of Health, National Oilwell Varco (NOV), Novartis, and Wells Fargo.

“These combined Spark and MapR-based workflow and integration layers allow the company’s life science researchers to meaningfully take advantage of the tens of thousands of experiments that public organizations have conducted – a significant competitive advantage,” reported Datanami* in an interview with David Tester, application architect for Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research.

In-depth research also highlights MapR customer successes. IDC, an independent research firm, recently interviewed a number of organizations using the MapR Converged Data Platform for a White Paper, sponsored by MapR. Results of the third-party research concluded on average that MapR customers will earn a three-year return on investment (ROI) of 382% and generate $26.6 million annually on average over three years in incremental revenue. Additionally, the research revealed that the MapR Platform enabled data scientists and application developers to achieve strong performance, resiliency, and improved timeliness and quality of analytical outputs.

From Fortune 2000 to leading startups, MapR customers across a wide range of industries use the MapR Converged Data Platform on-premises and in the cloud to run a multitude of applications to increase revenue, reduce costs, and mitigate risk. MapR is used today to perform over 100 billion ad auctions a day, study 96% of the U.S. internet traffic, and analyze and protect over a trillion dollars in retail purchases.

The MapR Converged Data Platform brings together the power of Hadoop and Spark with global event streaming; real-time, top-ranked NoSQL database capabilities; and enterprise storage. The MapR Platform provides the fastest, most reliable, secure and open data infrastructure that dramatically lowers TCO and enables global real-time data applications that support a broad set of mission-critical and real-time production uses cases.

“This IDC research confirms the business value our customers achieve with their MapR deployments,” said Jack Norris, chief marketing officer, MapR Technologies. “In today’s competitive environment, companies across every industry face the challenge of creating value from a growing influx of data and converting it into useful insights. The convergence of Hadoop, Spark and other big data technologies in a single platform is the innovation which enables our customers to experience real-time operational analytics with unprecedented performance, efficiency, and scalability.”
