According to a new article out of the company, “MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the top-ranked distribution for Apache™ Hadoop®, today announced that it has debuted in the Gartner 2015 Data Warehouse and Data Management Solutions for Analytics Magic Quadrant as a Challenger. Additionally, MapR, a pure-play Hadoop vendor, has been positioned furthest along the completeness of vision axis in the Challengers Quadrant.”

The article goes on, “Gartner recognizes that, ‘Completeness of Vision encompasses a vendor’s ability to understand the functions needed to develop a product strategy that meets the market’s requirements, comprehends overall market trends, and influences or leads the market when necessary. A visionary leadership role is necessary or the long-term viability of both product and company… A successful vendor will be able not only to understand the competitive landscape of data warehouses, but also to shape the future of this field with the appropriate focus of its resources for future product development’.”

It adds, “The MapR Distribution including Apache Hadoop is purpose-built to optimize data architectures, making them more agile, scalable, and real time. With an in-Hadoop NoSQL database, MapR helps organizations impact business ‘as-it-happens’ through automated processes that shorten data-to-action cycles. Data-centric environments require a balanced combination of reads, writes, and analytics in applications such as fraud detection/prevention, real-time product recommendations, or user authentication. Increasingly, customers are also seeking real-time transactional or streaming applications in environments like Internet of Things, sensor data and log analytics.”
