R Extension released!
Finally Integrated: R Extension released!
Finally, the two most widely used data analysis solutions - RapidMiner and R - are connected. According to the annual poll at KDnuggets, RapidMiner and R are the most widely used programs for data analysis worldwide. At the RapidMiner Community Meeting and Conference (RCOMM 2010), the new RapidMiner extension for the integration of R into RapidMiner was presented for the first time to the general public.
The following video shows how easy R models and scripts can be integrated into the RapidMiner analysis processes. RapidMiner offers a new R perspective consisting of the known R console together with the great plotting facilities of R. All variables as well as R scripts can be stored in the RapidMiner Repository and used from there which helps to organize the usually large number of scripts. Furthermore, widely used modeling methods are directly integrated as RapidMiner operators as usual.
"This is a huge step for open source data analysis. RapidMiner offers a great user interface, a clear process structure and lots of ETL and analysis capabilities necessary for real-world problems. R adds a lot of flexibility and many analysis and data manipulation methods. The result is the by far most powerful data transformation and analysis solution worldwide. And this analysis power is now combined with the ease-of-use already known from RapidMiner." states Dr. Ingo Mierswa, CEO of Rapid-I.
The new extension can be installed via the update manager of RapidMiner. Please find here more information about the available RapidMiner extensions.
