What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of RapidMiner is that it can read a large number of file formats including CSV, Excel, and in particular, SPSS. RapidMiner is easy for people to get started when they want to… more»

What needs improvement?

When I started using RapidMiner, I found it difficult to get it to read the metadata. I wanted to use, for example, a pivot table, and it did not have the variable or the attribute names in it. There… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

RapidMiner is adopting the same principle that SPSS has used, which makes it cheap or free at the university. When people graduate and go out to work in the industry, they are already familiar with… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have also used KNIME and IBM SPSS Modeler (formerly Clementine). I used IBM Modeler for a very big project that involved building a rule-based system for controlling sewage. We experienced the… more»

What other advice do I have?

Using RapidMiner is a two-stage process. At first, it's something simple whereby you can get quick results. This is done by clicking to get the mean standard deviations or the numerical variables, for… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I am also familiar with Weka and Alteryx, but I have not used them for real-world problems. The trouble is that so many of these products now are almost identical in what they offer you. They learn… more»

What is most valuable?

The GUI capabilities of the solution are excellent. Their Auto ML model provides for even non-coder data scientists to deploy a model. The features the solution offers are quite extensive. We haven't had a chance to utilize all of them yet… more»

What needs improvement?

The biggest problem, not from a platform process, but from an avoidance process, is when you work in a heavily regulated environment, like banking and finance. Whenever you make a decision or there is an output, you need to bill it as an… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Within the company, we have about seven user licenses. When it comes to clients, they typically only have one license, which is more than enough for their use.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Before using this solution, we were mostly working on a native R and Python-based platform. It was more of an open-source tool. This is the first commercial tool we have used.

What other advice do I have?

We're in the banking and finance space, so mostly our clients use the on-premises deployment model. As part of compliance, it's required that data should not go out of the bank's boundaries or firewall. This solution is a great tool for… more»

What needs improvement?

I think it is a fairly straightforward interface generally. It is an easy-to-use solution compared to SAS Enterprise Miner, for example. On the other hand, compared to some other products, maybe the UI could be enhanced. The visual… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The current licensing cost is advertised on the website. The client only has to pay the licensing costs. There are not any maintenance or hidden costs in addition to the license.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I had previously used other solutions but not as a part of this company. It was a matter of who I was working for.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate RapidMiner as around a seven. I choose seven because of the UI things and other parts of the product that might be improved. RapidMiner is more of an… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I used to work with a company where we sold a variety of products as system integrators. So I compared some product because we had to evaluate them to know the advantages and differences. At that time, we got to the stage where we were… more»

What is most valuable?

The best thing about RapidMiner is efficiency. RapidMiner is very easy to use. You just have to connect operators to launch an analysis state. You read the data with one operator, then filter it with… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This solution assists me with instructing students on how to pre-processing data and use various machine learning algorithms.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see all users have access to all of the deep learning models, and that they can be used easily. RapidMiner loads very slowly, which is something that should be improved.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I have been using the educational version.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used many different tools and have experience with a lot of different software, and I can say that RapidMiner is very easy to use.

What other advice do I have?

I have not worked with all of the features in RapidMiner. For example, I have not worked with all of the features for Big Data, and I have not used it with the cloud. I would rate this solution an… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is what the product sets out to do, which is extracting information and data.

What needs improvement?

I think it's a great product but confusing in some way with regard to the user interface and integration with other tools. An improvement would be the addition of some buttons which would be useful because I'm sometimes unsure why I need to use something or what is its purpose. I would say the same goes for additional features, the addition of buttons would be helpful. The product is better than… more»

What other advice do I have?

The tools have a complete function for doing data. I'm not quite sure about the speed of RapidMiner but I think it's the fastest solution that I use. I don't think the product consumes a lot of RAM, which is good. There is something confusing in the product but it's possible that the error is mine and maybe I'm not yet familiar enough with the product. I would therefore rate this product a nine… more»

What do you think of RapidMiner?

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case for this solution is education. We did a course at the university and I used this for my own education, as opposed to a business use case.

What is most valuable?

The documentation for this solution is very good, where each operator is explained with how to use it. There is a very clear structure between building a process and then looking at the results.

What needs improvement?

The price of this solution should be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for between six and twelve months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have had no problems with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I only used this solution locally, on my…

What is most valuable?

I like not having to write all solutions from code. Being able to drag and drop controls, enables me to focus on building the best model, without needing to search for syntax errors or extra libraries.

How has it helped my organization?

RapidMiner has moved companies toward being more data-driven. Decisions are made based on analysis of data and rapid prototyping, instead of gut feel.

What needs improvement?

The server product has been getting updated and continues to be better each release. When I started using RapidMiner, it was solid but not easy to set up and upgrade.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, I would rate RapidMiner at eight of 10. I have been able to use it effectively for all required use cases.
