Rapid-I at real-IT-y 2010
Rapid-I presents at the real-IT-y 2010 for a first time. The company with headquarters in Dortmund was founded by the two graduates of the local university Dr. Ingo Mierswa (CEO) and Ralf Klinkenberg (CBDO). Dr. Ingo Mierswa is looking forward to providing insights into the working environment at Rapid-I: “I myself have studied in Dortmund and highly appreciate the support of the university through the complete time. By participating in the real-IT-y, Rapid-I wants to keep the connection to the university as well as to help young professionals with their career choice.”
The company Rapid-I also provides diploma and masters theses in collaboration with the Artificial Intelligence Unit led by Prof. Dr. Morik. This is another opportunity to gain some insights into real-world analysis problems. “The work at Rapid-I differs a lot of that of more traditional software and service providers due to the open source business model build around our products RapidMiner and RapidAnalytics”, explains Mierswa. “A particular high degree of innovation, agile and community-driven development, and professional support of our customers meet in our everyday work.”
Rapid-I is an innovative provider of software, solutions and services in the area of predictive analytics, data mining and text mining and offers its customers automatable intelligent analyses, even of large text and data volumes, and classification and prediction systems derived from these. The open source data mining specialist Rapid-I thus makes it possible for other companies to use state-of-the-art technologies for intelligent data analysis and for discovering thus far unutilised company knowledge from existing stocks of data. Rapid-I has more than 200 customers in over 40 countries worldwide, including large renowned enterprises as well as many medium-sized enterprises, for example Allianz, comdirekt, EADS, E.ON Ruhrgas, GfK, Libri, mobilkom austria, Pervasive, Salzgitter Mannesmann, Sanofi-Aventis, Schober, Schott, Siemens or ThyssenKrupp.
