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:

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
