Big-data firm MapR appoints first CFO, eyes IPO

Nov 20 (Reuters) - MapR, which sells software for analyzing big data, named Dan Alter as its first chief financial officer as it prepares for a possible initial public offering.

Alter helped to take Ikanos Communications Inc and Silicon Image Inc public as CFO.

“We are preparing the company for that,” he told Reuters. “That’s something we would entertain over the next couple of years.”
