MapR: the future of MapR and HPE for AtoBI

At AtoBI, we are always sure to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to the software programs best suited to the needs of our clients. One of our current software programs in use is MapR, a Data Platform used to gather AI and analytics dataware. There are many benefits to using MapR, and yet recently there has been some concern as to its future and how best to support its users. CEO of AtoBI, Elaine Graydon, attests to the efficiency and benefits of using MapR, and will continue to support MapR throughout these changes.

Firstly, let’s look at the benefits of using MapR.

No matter your underlying infrastructure for data, the MapR dataware can handle a multitude of different data types. Users gain access to the MapR Data Platform, which allows them to store, manage, process and analyse data no matter their source. This software includes complete data protection and disaster recovery, to give you confidence knowing your data is protected.

MapR and HPE

After MapR Australia closed on May 17th 2019, there was a lot of uncertainty around customer support, expansion licensing and new purchases. Before this, MapR had announced they would be closing their corporate headquarters due to funding issues. This caused some upset for users, and the time between this occurrence and August 4th left MapR clients up in the air. However there is good news, as on August 4th Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) acquired MapR signaling a positive change. AtoBI customers can be confident that MapR will continue to function and thrive. With support from MapR/HPE and us here at AtoBI, there is no better time to start using this dataware and make the most of your data capabilities.

We are pleased and excited to continue to bring this amazing toolset to our customers, a toolset we know will continue to provide outcome requirements. MapR will now continue to be innovated to match customer requirements, and we are confident in the future of MapR for Australians.
