It is with pleasure and great enthusiasm that I announce RapidMiner’s acquisition of Radoop.

Radoop, a leading big data analytics solution for Hadoop®, makes Hadoop implementations more powerful and easy to use with RapidMiner’s advanced analytics suite. I have known and partnered with Radoop founder and technology luminary Zoltán Prekopcsák for several years, and the Radoop solution is already integrated in our enterprise-ready Studio and Server product lines.
