RapidMiner 4.1

Category Intelligent Software>Data Mining Systems/Tools

Abstract RapidMiner 4.1 (formerly YALE) is one of the world's leading open-source systems for knowledge discovery and data mining. It is available as a stand-alone application for data analysis and as a data mining engine which can be integrated into other software products.

RapidMiner has been successfully applied to a wide range of applications where its 'rapid prototyping' abilities demonstrated their usefulness, including text mining, multimedia mining, feature engineering, data stream mining and tracking drifting concepts, development of ensemble methods, and distributed data mining.

RapidMiner is available in two (2) different editions:

1) Community Edition.

2) Enterprise Edition = Community Edition + More Features + Services + Guarantees.

It is also possible to purchase a proprietary license (OEM license) of RapidMiner allowing commercial developers to integrate RapidMiner into their own products in cases where an open-source license does Not suit their needs.

The main features of RapidMiner (both Community and Enterprise Edition) are:

1) Freely available open-source knowledge discovery environment.

2) 100% pure Java (runs on every major platform and operating system).

3) Knowledge Discovery (KD) processes are modeled as simple 'operator trees' which is both intuitive and advanced.

4) Operator trees or sub-trees can be saved as 'building blocks' for later re-use.

5) An internal Extensible Markup Language (XML) representation ensures a standardized interchange format for data mining experiments.

6) A simple scripting language allowing for automatic large-scale experiments.

7) Its multi-layered data view concept ensures efficient and transparent data handling.

8) Flexibility in using RapidMiner:

9) Simple plugin and extension mechanisms, a broad variety of plugins already exist and you can easily add your own.

10) Advanced plotting facility offering a large set of sophisticated high- dimensional visualization techniques for data and models.

11) More than 400 machine learning, evaluation, in- and output, pre- and post-processing, and visualization operators plus numerous Meta optimization schemes.

12) The machine learning library WEKA is fully integrated in RapidMiner. Note: Weka is an open-source collection of machine learning algorithms for data mining tasks. The algorithms can either be applied directly to a dataset or called from your own Java code.

Weka contains tools for data pre-processing, classification, regression, clustering, association rules, and visualization. It is also well-suited for developing new ‘machine learning’ schemes.

RapidMiner Enterprise Edition = Community Edition + More Features + Services + Guarantees.

The manufacturer offers all the advantages of the freely available Community Edition combined with Enterprise-ready solutions for professional users including full support and all necessary guarantees.

The properties/capabilities of the Enterprise Edition are:

1) No license fees as usual.

2) All features which are known from the free Community Edition including all plugins and Weka.

3) Reporting: export results to Portable Document Format (PDF) / Excel / Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) / Rich Text Format (RTF).

4) Large-scale data mining by supporting multi-cores and 64 bit systems.

5) Additional operators.

6) Automatic updates if desired.

7) Support and ticket system with guaranteed response times.

8) Bug fixing guarantee.
