MAPR and SAS in big data pact

The firms are improving their Hadoop offerings for enterprises.

By Vinod

MapR Technologies, a provider of Apache Hadoop, has partnered with analytics firm SAS to develop their Hadoop offerings, which they claim will ensure better insights for enterprises.

The alliance will see them integrate SAS’s business analytics tools with MAPR’s distributed data platform while they join their customers together.

MapR’s technology adds features such as improved fault tolerance, ease-of-use and speed, NoSQL and streaming applications in one unified big data platform. It says it’s invested over $30m in the technology.

Elishia Rousos, a senior manager at SAS’s Alliance Management, said: "The use of SAS analytics software with MapR will help data scientists and analysts gain new business insights from their Hadoop-based data."

Steve Campbell, director of business development at MapR, added: "Through this alliance, customers benefit from the ability to make better business decisions faster through the market-leading analytics of SAS and the advanced architecture and performance of MapR."

The alliance comes after MapR told CBR in September 2013 that it was gearing up for an IPO as early as 2015.
