Return Path, an email intelligence software company based in New York, helps businesses build better relationships with their customers, improve their marketing ROI, and combat fraud. Return Path has always used open source software to run key parts of its business. The company had been using the open source Apache and Cloudera distributions of Hadoop for about four years. Return Path needed a Hadoop platform they could commit to and trust for years to come. They chose MapR to overcome this challenge. They have implemented MapR M5. The results of implementing MapR were the enterprise-grade capabilities and reduced administrative costs to MapR's expert technical support.
