You can get started in three easy steps:

# 1. Install a package with repository for your system:
# On CentOS, install package centos-release-scl available in CentOS repository:
$ sudo yum install centos-release-scl

# On RHEL, enable RHSCL repository for you system:
$ sudo yum-config-manager --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms

# 2. Install the collection
$ sudo yum install mariadb55

# 3. Start using the software collection:
$ scl enable mariadb55 bash

At this point you should be able to use MariaDB just as a normal application. Here are some examples of commands you can run:

$ service mariadb55-mariadb start
$ mysql
$ mysqld

(there is no mistake, to preserve compatibility the binary is named according to its MySQL sibling)

In order to view the individual components included in this collection, including additional subpackages plugins, you can run:

$ sudo yum list rh-mariadb55\*
