MapR (www.mapr.com), the 3rd Hadoop player and the much more commercial one, has recently mixed its exec team. Matt Mills joined the company as President and COO with 20 years at Oracle, David Cross as CMO coming from Ventiv Technology and Geneva Lake as SVP WW Business Development. The CTO and co-founder MC Shrivas has decided to leave the company and will join Uber as Chief Data Architect and Jack Norris has also changed of function and he's now VP Data and Applications. Hum, it seems that keys have changed hands and now a COO with leader ISV experience takes the operational lead. Something happened, the company has changed of direction and it seems the MapR had difficulties to deliver. It reminds me something with a pretty similar pattern.
