The web site features a video showing 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 asĀ 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.

Visit the RCOMM 2010 and learn more about how to integrate analysis and preprocessing methods offered by R as well as how to use the new R perspective offering a full R console and access to all R plotters.

Thus Rapid Miner is one more mainstream software (after SPSS, SAS etc) to add R functionality to it.
