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 RapidMiner Studio and RapidMiner AI Hub (formerly RapidMiner Server) product lines.
It has always been the goal of RapidMiner to meet and exceed the expectations of our users and this acquisition will allow us to provide a high-performance and easy-to-use data transformation and analysis solution for big data, the first of its kind to be based on Hadoop.
Radoop has seen tremendous traction in the Hadoop space, and their unmatched offering, added to RapidMiner’s best of breed advanced analytics platform, provides the most comprehensive predictive analytics offering on the market.
Please join me in welcoming the Radoop team to the RapidMiner family.
I look forward to your comments and feedback about this exciting acquisition.
