BOSTON, Mass. April 1, 2015RapidMiner, the industry’s easiest-to-use Modern Analytics platform for Big Data, announced today it has been positioned by Forrester Research as a Strong Performer in “The Forrester Wave™: Big Data Predictive Analytics Solutions, Q2 2015”1 report.

Predictive analytics represents a key opportunity in today’s business world. However, limiting these insights to just data scientists is shortsighted, preventing the business units within organizations from gaining deeper understanding that can propel them forward. RapidMiner solves this problem by empowering both data scientists and business analysts, aka next-generation data scientists.

RapidMiner was cited as a Strong Performer in this new Forrester Research report, which highlights why Big Data predictive analytics is a business game-changer. According to the report, “if organizations don’t use predictions to change the future, then they’re making their data scientists as helpless as Troy’s Cassandra.”

Also according to the report, “RapidMiner is a rock-solid enterprise solution with cloud capability. With a platform including more than 1,500 methods across all stages of the predictive analytics life cycle, RapidMiner has the breadth and flexibility that enterprises need to consume data and serve insights across the business. RapidMiner helps reduce time-to-insights and guide best practices for data analytics, analyzing the behavior of their users to create ‘wisdom of the crowds’ guidance. The platform helps users avoid repeating the mistakes of the past. With a single-click integration to run processes on the cloud, RapidMiner offers one of the most tightly integrated cloud capabilities of the assessed vendors.”

Forrester invited select companies to participate in the rigorous evaluation process. The firm evaluated 13 vendors against 45 criteria for their predictive analytics offerings, strategy and market presence.

RapidMiner continues to garner recognition as the de facto self-service Modern Analytics platform for data ingestion, data blending and predictive modeling for data scientists, business analysts and developers.

“Organizations that have yet to embrace Big Data and predictive analytics are missing a major opportunity and we want to make sure they are executing with the highest level of confidence in decisions born from data,” said Ingo Mierswa, co-founder and CEO of RapidMiner. “We help our hundreds of customers and active community of more than 250,000 users bring the power of predictive analytics to every business user with the most impactful, yet simplest experience.”
