MapR opens in Australia

Melbourne office part of Asia Pacific expansion

MapR Technologies has expanded its presence in the Asia-Pacific region with the opening of a new office in Melbourne.

The opening follows the recent appointment of Justin Bock as A-NZ country manager. The company said it is expanding operations to support growing demand by Australian companies to use big data as a competitive weapon.

The distributor for Apache Hadoop increased its presence in the region significantly in the last six months by establishing an Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore and offices in Japan and Korea.

MapR Technologies Asia Pacific vice president, Martin Darling, said the move to Melbourne was reflective of the interest shown by local companies regarding Hadoop and MapR.

“Having Justin in Australia as country manager and establishing a growing Australian team on the ground means that we are now well equipped to assist our existing customers with their needs while capitalising on the demand for our products and services in this market.”
