    Overall great, but need more work on documentation

    Overall Comment

    RapidMiner is the best open-source machine learning tool currently on market I've ever seen. The GUI interface is friendly to non-programmers, and the extension as well as the open-source code gives possibility for programmers to dig deep into it. The potential of RapidMiner is huge. However, the documentation is kind of poor in many operators and features, and due to the lack of users, not much reference could be found online.

    Unique, Easy to Use - A Highly Effective Application for Data Analysis

    Overall Comment

    Rapid Minor is unique among data analysis packages. It has a very effective graphical interface which not only makes using the package for complex data analysis much more intuitive; it makes explaning the data analysis process to customers and clients an easier one as well. Truely a unique product wich is very easy to use.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Having some training to go along with the software is helpful. It is actually easy to learn, but you can speed up the learning more, with a couple of days of training.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    The graphical way you conduct data analysis is outstanding. For visual learners and workers, this tremendous advantage.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Nothing really. It's very very good, and takes a little practice to learn the operators.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Nothing.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Nothing really. This product is very easy to use, and very very useful.

    Strong functionality in an open source product with a relatively short learning curve.

    Overall Comment

    As a newcomer to text analytics, I found RapidMiner to be a good choice for the projects that I was engaged in. The tutorials were helpful and the supporting documentation was adequate.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Like any product, the commitment to learning is key to a successful launch, so use the excellent tutorials.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Thorough description of each operator, including inputs, outputs, and uses.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Having to manage a bunch of extensions (add-ins) to use all of the functionality.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Provide a bit more info on the casue of errors.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Nothing.

    RapidMiner seems to be a very good start to explore the world of big data

    Overall Comment

    As a new user of RapidMiner, I would say it seems to be a performant and easy-to-use software for big data analytics. The book "Data Mining for the Masses" was a really good tutorial that demonstrates the features of RapidMiner. The help system inside the software provide pertinent information on the modules used to build models. The RapidMiner staff is also helping and very professional. RapidMiner has several types of licenses, including an educational license that enabled me to discover and use the software without restriction.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Read "Data Mining for the Masses" at docs.rapidminer.com/downloads/DataMiningForTheMasses.pdf

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    It's very user friendly. Building models with boxes and arrows is very intuitive and greatly help to have a clear view of the models

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Sometime the tutorials for the modules are not clear enough

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    He could fix some little bugs in the software

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    I won't change anything

    Product capabilities - overall comment

    I am still discovering RapidMiner, I cannot tell I've explored all possibilities of the software. Moreover, I don't know its performance as compared to other big data softwares.

    Implementation is easy, customer support is great and sales support is getting better.

    Overall Comment

    It was easy to adopt RapidMiner even when we did it while the company was on its early stages as a vendor. After three years of relationship I can say they are always supportive and on a continuous improvement path. The software is easy to install and manage and documentation is increasing making it easier to learn new ways of using and integrating the software with other solutions.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Always contact support when something is not working the way you thought it would work, they've shown that they take into consideration the bumps user runs into and always find a solution and sometimes on the next release you find things you suggested before.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    The community is always there to help and the company is always uploading content to YouTube so that you can learn the tips and tricks to use the tool full potential.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Sales team and renewal each year, they’re tuning their offer an each year we need to seat down to define the best offer for us.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    After sales support in Latin America each year it's been difficult for us to renew our licenses. I think its the only think they should keep on working with. Everything related to the support of the tool is great an exceeds my expectations but when we talk about renewal we spend more time that I would like to.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    We might opt for taking the courses offered by rapidminer team since they would enable us to use the software on its full capabilities.

    Integration & Deployment - Overall comment

    Using the web services it's easy to use the models you create on RappidMiner and also exposing the dashboards to other solutions we develop enabling us to have an independent team from IT development and maintaining full control on what we show to the customers.

    Product(s): RapidMiner Studio

    A very fast way to my first data mining models and getting productive.

    Overall Comment

    RapidMiner Studio is easy to use, even for beginners. What I liked most is that after a very short try-and-error phase I could run my models. And my students too. And we could write our data mining article on ADL (activities of daily live) and presenting it on various conferences in a really short time.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Just use it.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Open Source, easy to use.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    There are two points: a) (not really important) running the GUI on Microsoft Surface is a problem due to the high resolution of the Surface. b) Include deep learning methods.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Maybe rethink the way I organize my different models and how I name them.

    Product(s): RapidMiner Studio

    Powerful easy-to-use analytic tools suite; but need more on-line "Help" and training.

    Overall Comment

    RapidMiner is a robust suite of analytic capabilities and encompasses a broad range of analytic methods that can be applied to structured and unstructured data, numeric and text, etc. It is simple to install and get up and running quickly, even for a novice (non-data scientist). I am also quite pleased with the "Marketplace" of additional extensions (groupings of additional analytic methods) that can be easily integrated into the analysis suite. Relative to other commercial analytic products, RapidMiner is by far one of the most economical and reasonably priced, particularly given its powerful analytic capabilities. However, the built-in help is barely adequate, and the examples are often difficult to follow. In addition, I would like to see improved documentation and training, particularly in an on-demand and on-line format. If such training were readily available and affordable, it would likely reduce the time to better adopt and integrate RapidMiner into our operations.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Evaluate the software and its capabilities by using real or representative data and an evaluation copy of RapidMiner, which is full featured.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Cost, full featured, and expanding list of third party "extensions" in the on-line marketplace.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Lack of robust Help documentation, not enough example processes, lack of training options.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    On-line and/or on-demand training seems to be an afterthought. I wish the vendor had a robust training curriculum 2 years ago.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    The rate at which we are able to adopt RapidMiner is in part hampered by the lack of robust help documentation and training options. Much of what I have learned about RapidMiner's capabilities has been via YouTube videos or other 3rd parties, such as blogs and forums. I would like to see training options included with each purchase.

    Product capabilities - overall comment

    Outstanding capabilities for the price.

    Service & support - overall comment

    The company is small, and technical support resources seem scarce. They are good/qualified, but scarce.

    RapidMiner Desktop provided everything I wanted in an easy to use platform.

    Overall Comment

    I have received great support when required and the team at RapidMiner is willing to go the extra mile when I ask out of the box questions. The desktop client is easy to use and build models.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Start with a few easy use cases and see how RapidMiner performs and the time required to build the solution versus other tools.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Ease of use and ability to do data mining without having to write R or some other code which takes longer.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    The user interface is much better in 7 than prior versions.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    The server product must be the same version as the desktop, so you have to plan to upgrade both at the same time.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    We would have bought more desktops and purchased the server license later after we had some proven models ready to deploy.

    Integration & Deployment - Overall comment

    Desktop is great, Server is a bit clunky. Versions must match so upgrading across the team at the same time is required.
