      they are doing good. almost all shops i'm working on have cdh/hdp data lake. what i've noticed is they are focusing on services (consulting) these days

      haha yeah stock looks f'd up. but cloudera/hdp has become a critical part of modern data pipeline just like oracle in rdbms. and just like oracle they've got the market share so give it some time it will trend up unless there's a better competitor out there

      Come on, a lot of ppl at MapR has no clue, you hear rumor here and there, unless you are close to executives, you don't know until the deal has been closed. Even you have friends, you don't want to press them to share internal info, which might put them at risk. Lots of early employees have a pretty big chunk of shares, and they spent their own money to buy it. And they are not there anymore.

      Precisely, what I meant. You know only if you're an executive, everything else is just rumor. Thank you @unnderpaid.

      Instead of asking questions to the own executives, some employees are chiding outsiders who are curious. Not surprised they are not privy to any info. Good luck with the sale.

      I haven't seen anything definitive on the Internet; it seems as though they're trying to keep things hush-hush (not sure why, unless they're worried about a bidding war - which I would love!). My info comes from people who were there until just before last week's layoffs...

    Several sources have confirmed the layoffs of all of Sales on 5/9/19... DXC is supposedly the acquiring company, having taken on most of the rest of the company on Tuesday 5/14/19 (except some US and India resources), with the full acquisition to be completed in June...

      I doubt it's DXC. And the 5/14 date makes no sense either

    It would be pathetic if acquired by Cloudera. But I just want the highest bid.

    My gut said IBM or MSFT. SAP came to mind but seems a bit of a stretch. We will find out soon enough. US team liquidated, EU packing up. Cloudera may not be able to integrate the HW acquisition as efficiently as they had hoped. That is a bridge too far IMO. But I have been wrong (many times) before. Storage co. as a possibility as well since all storage CO's are so much more these days 🧐

    HPE and DXC has no 💰 💰. Cloudera has nothing to gain from MapR except customers and mapr file system.

    No updates on this yet. Based on last week's events, I thought the news will break out soon.

      I would have found it funny too, only if it wasn't happening to me. The big guys here are very incompetent, so there isn't any hope.

      If they get acquired by Microsoft for example, employee stock becomes Microsoft stock.

    • What if they get acquired by a private firm ?

  • It’s over .. it’s sad 😞 it had promise .. gle.com/amp/s/kkkk://www.sfchronicle.com/business/amp/Software-company-MapR-once-worth-more-than-1-13904888.php .. they should have partnered and stayed open source .. they went closed source proprietary and got sodemized 😑

      Not yet at least. That's a possibility though. But we are actively working on an acquisition.

      Based on the trend, all "big data" companies are in trouble. Hope the popcorn lasts long enough
