Hyderabad: US-based MapR Technologies Inc., a California, US-based enterprise Software Company, on Thursday opened its research & development (R&D) centre in the city, signaling its larger plans for the Indian market.
The centre, the first one of the company outside the United States, is an 11,000 sft facility where MapR will initially employ over 40 people before doubling the headcount in a year’s time.
“Since we started our operations in India we have grown significantly. The setting up of the new R&D centre is a natural progression of the company’s strong customer and partner base,” John Schroeder, Co-founder and CEO, MapR Technologies, told media here.
The company is looking to build a lasting presence in the country and to invest in long-term customer relations.“We wanted to have a second geography to get great engineering done. We have chosen Hyderabad because it has great talent pool. Our new centre here will develop core technologies for our global clients,” Shroeder said.
The company extends services to governments, security, financial sector and telecom, among others. Recently, it announced industry’s first and only converged data platform and introduced MapR Streams, a reliable global event streaming system that connects data producers and data consumers across shared topics of information.
“The integration of MapR Streams into a converged platform enables organizations in any industry to continuously collect, analyse and act on streaming data,” the company said.
