Technologies, Inc., provider of the top-ranked distribution for
Apache Hadoop, today launched at Hadoop
Summit the industry’s first Hadoop application gallery. Launching
with solutions from a wide range of Hadoop ecosystem partners, the MapR
App Gallery is designed to help customers derive greater business value
from big data as they scale-out their enterprise data architectures.
Aimed at end-user developers, administrators, and analysts who want to
develop more sophisticated big data capabilities to enhance their
business operations and decision-making, the MapR App Gallery offers the
benefit of ready-made big data utilities and applications.
“Our customers typically run many different applications on a MapR
cluster and the App Gallery makes it much easier and faster to achieve
success,” said Jack Norris, chief marketing officer, MapR Technologies.
“There is already a broad range of applications available, and we
anticipate the number of applications will grow – particularly those
leveraging unique capabilities that enable customers to better optimize
revenue, control costs and mitigate risk.”
The App Gallery includes administrator-oriented apps for provisioning,
management, and security; developer-oriented applications, query engines
and frameworks; and analyst-focused applications for business
intelligence and machine learning. Partners and solutions represented in
the MapR App Gallery today include:
Database: Hadapt, HP Vertica, Rainstor, and Splice Machine
Analytics and Data Integration: Alpine Data Labs, Appfluent, Data
Tactics, Datameer, DataTorrent, Informatica, Information Builders,
Jaspersoft, Pentaho, Platfora, Revelytics, Revolution Analytics,
Syncsort, Tableau, and Talend
Search: Elasticsearch and LucidWorks
Machine Learning: 0xdata, Skytree, and Zementis
Management and security: Dataguise, Splunk, StackIQ, and Voltage
The MapR Distribution is the most open distribution for Hadoop with
industry-standard APIs to make it plug-and-play without special-purpose
connectors or porting. Developers are encouraged to participate by
leveraging one or more of the following open interfaces in their
Storage access via HDFS API and NFS
Job execution via YARN, Tez, MapReduce, and Spark
Ecosystem interfaces including HBase, HiveQL, PigLatin
SQL via Drill, Hive, Stinger/Tez
Administration interfaces including REST
App Gallery contributors verify that their applications interoperate
with the MapR Distribution with documentation and support information
provided for each application. Developers can submit new applications
directly to the App Gallery at www.mapr.com/appgallery/submit-app.
"The advanced sensitive data discovery and data-centric protection
capabilities inherent in Dataguise are the perfect complement to the
multi-tenancy and security of the MapR platform,” said Patty Nghiem, VP
of marketing and business development at Dataguise. “We are excited to
showcase our integration with the MapR Sandbox for Hadoop in the MapR
App Gallery, which will help drive the implementation of secure,
compliant production environments based on Hadoop.”
"With our comprehensive platform for big data integration and analytics,
we’re proud to be involved in the launch of the new MapR App
Gallery,” said Eddie White, EVP of business development at Pentaho.
"Companies interested in generating greater business value from
their MapR Hadoop investment can turn to this resource for exploring a
wide range of best-in-class applications and tools that interoperate
with the MapR Distribution."
"Talend is working closely with MapR to provide best-in-class data
integration solutions, natively optimized for enterprise Hadoop
environments,” said Francois Chiche, VP global alliances at Talend. “The
MapR App Gallery serves as a online destination to help customers
understand how a variety of Hadoop technologies can be put into
production to optimize big data analysis.”

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds.
How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition.
A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...
