"Our new U.S. headquarters, funding, increased sales and marketing outreach, global community of over 200,000 active enterprise users, and the overall escalating growth of the predictive analytics market are attracting more and more interest in RapidMiner," said Ingo Mierswa, co-founder and CEO of RapidMiner. "Along with word of mouth from satisfied customers, this is driving interest levels to new heights. Wherever we are, prospective customers are especially interested in RapidMiner's ease-of-use, intuitive drag and drop user interface, and fast start Applications Wizards."

At CeBIT, Mierswa is presenting at these two sessions in the BI Forum:

  • "Predictive Analytics for Dummies" Tuesday, March 12, at 12:00 p.m.; and
  • "Big Data Analytics - No Programming Required!" Wednesday, March 13, at 2:00 p.m.

Over the past year, RapidMiner repeatedly surveyed its active user base, and applied that feedback to RapidMiner v6, released three months ago. This significant upgrade provides new features like Applications Wizards which demonstrate how business analysts can implement churn reduction, sentiment analysis, preventative maintenance, and direct marketing. Business users can be productive within five minutes. In addition, v6 also includes revised visualization management and display creation, and new views for data statistics and results. Altogether, RapidMiner v6 delivers self-service predictive analytics to business analysts, with zero coding required, and without the high price tag and band of consultants associated with larger vendors in this market.
