Rapid-I and Radoop Partnership: Working Toward User-Friendly Big Data

August 11, 2012

A new partnership announced between a business intelligence firm and a big data problem solver is one to put on your radar.

Rapid-I, a leading provider of open source solutions, and Radoop, an interface for big data analytics, have joined forces, according to a blog post on Rapid-I, “Partnership Between Rapid-I and Radoop.” Both parties are excited about the collaboration and state the development of the RapidMiner extension offered by Radoop is just the first step in a long-term business partnership. CEO of Rapid-I, Dr. Ingo Mierswa, states about the move:

“The extension is assuming a pioneering role and is already being used with great satisfaction. The best of two worlds is brought together by Radoop: The analysis of large data volumes enabled by Hadoop and an intuitive user interface brought in by RapidMiner. The real-time insights offered by the solution make a tight interlocking with operational business processes possible and therefore give enterprises a real benefit, e.g. for the early detection of customer churn or sales optimizations through combining CRM data with social media analyses.”

With a whirlwind of nonsense and heavy words surrounding the big data trend, it is refreshing for us to see two companies working toward user-friendly big data analytics. We look forward to the possibilities that will be sure to arise out of this collaborative effort.
