The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which went into effect May 25, 2018, mandates certain rights for EU residents and their personal data. GDPR stipulates that, upon request, organizations must erase or rectify personal data, allow for portability of personal data, and much more. Though the path to GDPR compliance is rarely associated with analytics initiatives, it should be.
By building a data lake that consolidates personal information across enterprise systems, organizations gain full visibility into what data is being stored about users and, just as importantly, how that data is being used. The MapR Data Platform can scale out to support nearly an unlimited amount of data across diverse data types - files, tables, and streams - giving you a better, more comprehensive view of the user data you are storing. With built-in features like high-performance, streaming audits, and a read-write filesystem that updates user records at 8kb blocks, MapR is an ideal platform for addressing many GDPR requirements.
