"The most valuable feature of RapidMiner is that it is code free. It is similar to playing with Lego pieces and executing after you are finished to see the results. Additionally, it is easy to use and has interesting utilities when preparing the data. It has a utility to automatically launch a series of models and show the comparisons. When finished with the comparisons you can select the best one, and deploy it automatically.""RapidMiner is very easy to use.""It's helpful if you want to make informed decisions using data. We can take the information, tease out the attributes, and label everything. It's suitable for profiling and forecasting in any industry.""The GUI capabilities of the solution are excellent. Their Auto ML model provides for even non-coder data scientists to deploy a model.""We value the collaboration and governance features because it's a comprehensive platform that covers everything from data extraction to modeling operations in the ML language. RapidMiner is competitive in the ML space.""The data science, collaboration, and IDN are very, very strong."

"The solution can be improved by adding more automated options for reporting."

More Information Builders WebFOCUS Cons →

"I would like to see all users have access to all of the deep learning models, and that they can be used easily.""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 avoidance to the investigator or to the bank audit team. If you made decisions within this machine learning model, you need to explain why you did so. It would better if you could explain your decision in terms of delivery. However, this is an issue with all ML platforms. Many companies are working heavily in this area to help figure out how to make it more explainable to the business team or the regulator.""In the Mexican or Latin American market, it's kind of pricey.""RapidMiner isn't cheap. It's a complete solution, but it's costly.""Many things in the interface look nice, but they aren't of much use to the operator. It already has lots of variables in there.""RapidMiner can improve deep learning by enhancing the features."
