"MapR gives us the agility to meet demands of the business and the ability to shift when those demands change... The flexibility we have by leveraging the MapR Platform is earth- shattering given the scale we are running."
-- Kevin McClowry Director of Analytic Solution Development at TransUnion
The first TransUnion products leveraging the MapR Platform are based on their consumer credit database going back seven years. Data sources include records compiled from over 85,000 data feeds, covering about 300 million consumers. They use MapR Direct Access NFS to ingest this mostly structured data. Once inside, the data is standardized in Parquet for interoperability. The Hive data warehouse does data prep for Apache Drill. The custom Java web app portal integrates with a Tableau backend server. Drill is the main SQL engine driving the interactive experience for Tableau.
