Wellesley Hills, Mass. – Jan. 25, 2016 – RedPoint Global Inc. (www.redpointglobal.com), a leading provider of data management and customer engagement software, today announced that RedPoint Data Management™ is now a MapR Certified Technology, enabling joint customers to derive more value from their data using the same traditional data flow style and user interface – ultimately reducing risk and total cost of ownership.

RedPoint Data Management is designed to integrate, cleanse, transform, de-duplicate and link traditional and Big Data from any data source, no matter the format, cadence, structure or lack of structure. With a unique drag-and-drop interface, business users can easily collaborate with IT to load any data source into Hadoop; cleanse data for consistent formats and standardization; and integrate and match data using probabilistic and heuristic matching rules all done natively inside the Hadoop cluster. A native YARN application, RedPoint offers customers faster time to value because it does not require specialized coding.

“Working with MapR enables us to offer our customers differentiated offerings from the Hadoop marketplace,” said RedPoint Global CEO and Founder Dale Renner. “RedPoint Data Management is a powerful complement to the MapR enterprise-grade platform. Becoming part of the broad MapR ecosystem will make it easier for RedPoint users to realize value from their investments in Big Data.”

The MapR Converged Data Platform integrates the power of Hadoop and Spark with global event streaming, real-time database capabilities, and enterprise storage for developing and running innovative data applications. The MapR Platform is powered by the industry’s fastest, most reliable, secure, and open data infrastructure that dramatically lowers total cost of ownership and enables global real-time data applications.

“We welcome the addition of RedPoint Global into the MapR ecosystem and are pleased that they have certified on MapR,” said Sheryl Sage, director, global technology partner organization, MapR Technologies. “Combining RedPoint’s data quality and integration offering with MapR enables customers to extract and operationalize Big Data deployments and uncover the hidden value in their data.”
