One of the main use cases for our cluster is to give our business teams access to Hive in a user friendly way. We've looked at projects like Hue (https://github.com/cloudera/hue) and were wondering whether MapR has something similar on the horizon.

We just released a Hive ODBC driver which lets you use any graphical SQL-based tool with MapR/Hive. Rather than build a really basic Web-based query builder, we believe in exposing standard interfaces such as NFS and ODBC. There are many open source and commercial tools that are much more powerful than Hue, such as TOAD and Excel. Here's an open source tool that you could leverage: http://www.kaimon.cl/
