BOSTON – February 24, 2014 – Pioneering advanced analytics vendor RapidMiner today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the first “Gartner Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms,” published February, 19, 2014.1 The report is available at www.rapidminer.com/resource/gartner-magic-quadrant-data-science-platforms.

Gartner Magic Quadrants evaluate vendors on their ability to execute and the completeness of their vision. According to Gartner, “leaders are those vendors with a strong and proven track record in the market that are also likely to influence the market’s broader growth and direction.” In the report, Gartner states that “predictive analytics and other categories of advanced analytics are becoming a major factor in the analytics market.”
Over the past year, RapidMiner has worked closely with its active community of users, and applied that community’s feedback to the release of RapidMiner v6 in November 2013. This significant upgrade provided 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 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, giving businesses the ability to predict what may happen next.
