|RapidMiner, Poll||26 May 2011|
|RapidMiner and R most popular solutions - Thanks by Ingo Mierswa||
RapidMiner and R were again the most popular tools - open source but also overall - followed by SAS.
In the annual poll on the leading data analysis portal KDnuggets.com , RapidMiner was again selected as the most widely used solution for data analytics in the world. The questions was:
Which data mining/analytic tools you used in the past 12 months for a real project?
About 30% of all analysts select RapidMiner as solution for their analytical tasks in 2011. RapidMiner was already the most popular tool in 2010 and defended the title in 2011.
The poll had a record participation with more than 1,100 voters. Among them, 43% used only commercial software, 32% only free software, and 25% both. The average number of tools per user was 2.2. Interestingly, the survey of KDnuggets readers also revealed that, in terms of using open source software, Western Europe is up among the forerunners again.
This success was only possible by the huge efforts of our community. I would really like to thank all supporters - I am sure that more people become aware of RapidMiner now!
