"Michael Fabacher's team did a bake-off between four SQL-on-Hadoop tools before selecting Drill to aid with the analytics.
'None of them could support everything we wanted,' Fabacher said, pointing to the relative newness of the technologies. But he gave credit to MapR for working with Cardlytics to add specific SQL functionality that the company required, including window functions for gathering values from a set of rows in a data store, automatic partitioning of data to boost query performance and new types of joins."
