RapidMiner Extends Cutting-Edge Predictive Analytics for Tableau
Company Announces New Strategic Partnership and Showcases Joint Customer at RapidMiner Wisdom User Conference

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 21, 2016­­­ /PRNewswire/ -- RapidMiner Wisdom 2016 in NYC -- RapidMiner, the industry's #1 open source predictive analytics platform, today announced a new partnership with leading business analytics software vendor Tableau. The partnership enriches Tableau data visualizations with powerful, statistically-based insights from RapidMiner, allowing business analysts to make their everyday decisions with a greater degree of confidence. 

#1 Agile Predictive Analytics Platform for Today's Modern Analysts

With the shortage of data scientists, today's modern business analysts are being challenged to become "citizen data scientists," and use predictive analytics to find hidden gems within big and disparate data. But often times they lack the statistical programming skills to navigate the avalanche of data. 

Easy-to-use, drag and drop software from RapidMiner further empowers Tableau users with limited data science skills to generate their own predictive results and integrate them into their analytic visualizations, improving the likelihood of achieving desired outcomes. Predictive analytics provides business analysts with the ability to glean new, deeper insights from their data to better understand customers, business performance and operational efficiencies.

"We were impressed with the speed with which we were able to use RapidMiner's Predictive Analytics Platform to source, cleanse, simplify and cluster our data to solve a complex problem and then leverage Tableau to allow us to visualize and analyze this prepared data," said Lauren Ellenburg, senior manager of Informatics and Population Health at Southwest Kidney Institute. "The fusion of these two technologies allows us to go from an anecdotal approach to operational decisions to a data-supported approach, which enables us to create more meaningful interventions and better patient care moving forward."

"We are thrilled to welcome RapidMiner into the Tableau partner ecosystem," said Dan Kogan, Director of Product Marketing at Tableau. "RapidMiner provides Tableau customers with the ability to extend upon the strong analytics capabilities already in Tableau and leverage the value of predictive analytics within their data visualizations to produce new insights that lead to better actions. At the same time, we're very excited to open up the rich predictive models RapidMiner users create to a much wider audience of business users for maximum business impact."

"The Tableau-RapidMiner partnership delivers additional predictive analytics to Tableau customers, elevating business insights to an entirely new level," said Bill Doyle, Chief Revenue Officer at RapidMiner. "Organizations who have invested in Tableau can now easily apply more advanced methods to make decisions that ensure better business outcomes."
