Platform

MapR Data Platform

MapR is pioneering solutions for data scientists and data engineers as well as their existing user base of system admins and cluster operators.

MapR engaged us to find out exactly what their users need today and what they will need in the future. Working closely with the users, product owners and the engineering team we researched, crafted and validated robust user experiences for the future of DataOps.


Revolution or evolution of the legacy system?

Gaining a deep understanding

Originally launched in 2011, the MapR Control System is the flagship product of the MapR Data Platform. While users’ needs and expectations kept evolving, the product UI had not, and it was time for a redesign, but to what degree?

Stakeholder and SME interviews gave us the context we needed to craft our research protocol, then we headed out to interview admins in their places of business. We built an understanding of both the complex and mundane aspects of what, how and why people do the things they do in their efforts to be successful.


How can we offer an expanded experience yet also be more granular?

Envision the good future

Back at MapR, our research findings fueled ideation, prioritization, and vision activities that support MapR in meeting their user’s needs and achieving their business objectives.

The Strategy Workshop was a perfect opportunity to bring everyone together to draw on each other’s expertise and ultimately create alignment on the plan moving forward including prioritized personas and the key scenarios for the design phase.


How quickly can we get from concepts to dev-ready designs?

Rapid iterative design & validation

Design kicked into high gear as soon as the scenarios were drafted during the workshop. We quickly prototyped the first three scenarios for our key personas, including the new multi-cluster view that was top priority.

In less than 3 weeks we were ready for user testing. We used the RITE methodology to rapidly test, iterate and evaluate the prototypes.
