The Data Mining Group (DMG) is an independent, vendor led consortium that develops data mining standards, such as the Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML). PMML is the leading standard for statistical and data mining models and supported by over 20 vendors and organizations.

Rapid-I now is observing member of the Data Mining Group beside companies like IBM, MicroStrategy, SPSS, and SAS. Those and several other companies established PMML as standard language for data mining models during the last years. “The Predictive Model Markup Language continues to gain momentum in the data mining community as the de-facto standard for model exchange.” says Dr. Michael Zeller, DMG Membership Chair and CEO of Zementis. “We welcome Rapid-I as a new member of the DMG. By adding PMML support to RapidMiner, the PMML standard will become pervasive across all major open source data mining tools, adding to its broad acceptance among commercial vendors.”

Beside the compatibility of data mining models the applicability of models direct in database systems on large amounts of data is especially important to Rapid-I. Until now, users of RapidMiner had to ensure scalability for large amounts of data by combinations of specific access operations together with selected modeling schemes like Naïve Bayes. “I am looking forward to the support of PMML by RapidMiner. This allows the execution of RapidMiner models also by other solution and this will ease the deployment of data mining a lot.” says Dr. Ingo Mierswa, CEO of Rapid-I.

One of the first new extensions for the new version RapidMiner 5 will be the support of PMML. The beta version of RapidMiner 5 has just been released and PMML support is expected for the first quarter 2010 at the latest.
