Ovum analyst Laurent Lachal compares RapidMiner to its proprietary counterparts SAS and SPSS and writes: “RapidMiner is more generic, with a stronger focus on flexibility, expandability, artificial intelligence methods and meta-learning, as well as on the data mining process as a whole, including arbitrary process nesting and automated optimisation.” He also states that “RapidMiner [...] has a wider area of applicability” and that it differs from its counterparts in price and usability, “based on the fact that it is both more flexible by design and that its open source status enables users to customise it to fit their specific requirements”. In addition, Rapid-I offers companies the option to buy an OEM license allowing them to integrate RapidMiner in their own proprietary closed source products. Currently, Rapid-I is building an international network of OEM, solution, and service partners. Regarding the product roadmap, the Ovum analyst likes that “Rapid-I plans to build analytical applications on top of RapidMiner”, which would increase the impact of Rapid-I impact on the business intelligence and data mining market.
