MapR Technologies, Inc. has announced 81% revenue growth for its first quarter of fiscal 2018, which ended on April 30, 2017, compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2017.  MapR achieved this revenue growth through new and expanded purchases by customers worldwide. The number of MapR customers and partners continued to grow as deployments of the MapR platform helped organizations derive greater business value from their data.

“We continue to see deployments of a new breed of intelligent applications that transform the way data is used by organizations to achieve greater efficiency and advantage,” said Matt Mills, CEO, MapR Technologies.  “MapR offers a unique production-ready data platform that can seamlessly support legacy and modern data technologies with the speed, scale and reliability needed by enterprise customers.”
