Strata + Hadoop World New York 2015 and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 29, 2015—

RapidMiner, the industry’s #1 open source predictive analytics platform, today announced the general availability of RapidMiner Radoop v2.6, making it easy to incorporate SparkR and PySpark scripts within a single, unified analytics workflow. Radoop, a core component of the RapidMiner platform, extends predictive analytics to Hadoop and Spark, giving organizations complete and holistic insight across all their data by leveraging the computation power of their Hadoop clusters.

By adding SparkR and PySpark support, RapidMiner becomes the first and only visual predictive analytics solution to combine data preparation on Spark, predictive analytics using Spark’s Machine Learning library (MLlib), and the ability to incorporate custom-built R and Python scripts. RapidMiner’s visual building block “language” makes the process of creating predictive analytics incredibly fast. Using Spark’s computation power makes analytics execution extremely efficient, empowering organizations to quickly and easily extract and operationalize the immense value deeply hidden within their Hadoop clusters.
