Rapidminer fits exactly the needs for an fast and flexible Predicitve Analytics Solution

What do you like best?

The simple useage and the possibility to learn all necessary aspects in a short amount of time so you can do professional data science very fast and easy. The frontend shows all essential parts on one view and you can customize the view exactly to your needs to support your personal preferences while working. The flexible design of a process throgh the Operators that are exactly described right within the Software and even linked to a use case showing the function of each Operator.

What do you dislike?

The large amount of RAM used to handle large datasets (e.g. to join them) and no possibility (i know) to have an alternative to work around this Problem and the vizualisation engine feels a bit slow slow sometimes when handling large datasets.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Rapidminer to do Predictive Analytics processes as well as Research with Text Mining proceses in the area of Marketing and Sales. I get a lot of additional insights to use and have a scoring for potential customers to evaluate the best possible customers on the market.

RapidMiner, an easy to use but powerful data mining tool

What do you like best?

RapidMiner is very easy to use. With a little bit tutorial, a beginner can quickly start learning data mining by using RapidMiner. This tool is written in Java, which means that it can work on any platforms. Its basic version is free, and for education purpose the fully function version is available for free, too. I adopt this tool as a major data mining tool in my Introduction to Data Mining course. It is best for students with little data mining knowledge.

In addition, the documentation is great. Users can read documents on the right-bottom when an operator is selected. This makes it so handy to learn the details about an operator

What do you dislike?

So far I do not have anything that I dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

this is a great software that I would recommend.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. using as a major tool for teaching students.

2. I also begin to use it for my own data mining research

RapidMiner; A Career Starter and a Problem Solver

What do you like best?

RapidMiner allows you to utilize the discoveries of the statistical/mathematical/programming communities with little prior knowledge of theory and no experience with coding. The RapidMiner community provides educational videos as well as face-to-face workshops and webinars. On top of that, there are tutorials in product that help new users adjust quickly to the program and to the field.

What do you dislike?

The company promotes education at its own expense and is doing great work for the business/data science communities. Some webinars/videos that they provide are business orientated while some are theory leaning. The only thing that I dislike is the amount of videos (there are hundreds) to watch and so little time to do so.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out for yourself, it's free! The tutorials take less than a few minutes and you'll catch on quickly, I guarantee it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Programming is allows flexibility at the cost of time. RapidMiner saves that time spent configuring code and allows you to link other languages such as R to restore that flexibility.

Best Data Science

What do you like best?

Complex analyses of complex data is made simple in a drag&drop style, presented in layers of abstraction and well documented in understandable terms. This makes an analysis reproducible and easily transferable to another application. In contrast to scripts that cannot be used without its developer, RapidMiner processes are at hand to everybody, instantly.

What do you dislike?

It may happen that you are not so happy with the version that is not for cloud computing. Ok, buy the one with Radoop and all support!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try the introductory case processes and play! When going productive, book training and consulting by RapidMiner to gain the full benefit.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Resource saving in production processes is a large field ranging from anomaly detection based on time series over quality prediction based on sensor/machine data from the production process and finally to prescriptive analysis which controls the production through multi objective optimisation.

Focus on the development of analyzes that generate results.

What do you like best?

Rapidminer allows you to build a rationale fluidly. The way the tool was designed makes the whole focus on building powerful analytical models without worrying about specific points. As you build an analytical model and are faced with the need to perform some transformation or correction, you'll find the right operator on RapidMiner to solve the problem. It's amazing how Rapidminer keeps its efforts in the right spot, without going through the technical implementation line that is time consuming and without allowing you to develop a simple and wrong model. The flow of the tool causes an immersion in understanding aspects of each operator used and give you security of the model that was created. All this with a good performance for large databases. For me, working with market intelligence is perfect, keeping my focus on finding the best results. At the same time that you use RapidMiner, you develop a learning cycle that transcends the tool and goes into questions about how the various algorithms work. You are asking the right questions and increasing your power of understanding.

What do you dislike?

Although it does not seem to be one of its focuses, it would be interesting if RapidMiner had more options for visualizing data and that in some way facilitated the construction of reports, without the need of other tools, such as Excel or Tableau.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A great tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have mainly used for the construction of analytical models focused on analysis of unstructured data, mainly of social media. I have currently used RapidMiner to analyze sales data and other quantitative data, such as demand forecast data.

Motivates students to learn machine learning

What do you like best?

I like intuitive user interface. Because of it, novice users quickly get a grip on basic machine learning steps. A lot of time spent when performing a machine learning task is usually spent with data pre-processing and trying to understand, what data means. Rapidminer offers a plethora of possibilities to import the data from various sources and formats, as well as some really powerful data visualization tools. All major ML models are also included. It is also very nice to have free academic licence available - for students and instructors. Academic licence is easily and quickly obtainable and the process does not require lengthy bureaucratic procedure.

What do you dislike?

I personally dislike that some metrics for performance of the models are missing. I have been unable to find adjusted R squared parameter for evaluation of multiple linear regression models. I could also benefit from additional metrics for feature relevance. For example i could benefit from standardized multiple linear regression coefficients.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look at their tutorials. They provide quick start into machine learning.

If you are entitled for academic licence - it is free. When you will need it to support a business case, in my opinion the licence price is reasonable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using Rapidminer in lab classes. I am also using it to rapidly test and evaluate research related ideas.
