Data science platform provider RapidMiner recently announced the release and general availability of RapidMiner 9.0 with Turbo Prep. Turbo Prep is a new capability that hastens manual data preparation tasks. The feature allows analysts to pivot and blend data from multiple sources while seeing the impact on their data. Turbo Prep is included with RapidMiner Studio licenses, and users that upgrade to version 9 will receive a 30-day trial.
RapidMiner offers a unified platform for data science teams that includes data preparation, machine learning, and predictive model deployment. The product touts a community of more than a quarter-million data science experts, as well as a marketplace that keeps pace with evolving trends. RapidMiner’s 60+ connectors provide access to any type of data, and users can run workflows in-memory or in-Hadoop.
Turbo Prep enables data blend and joins from a number of sources including relational databases, NoSQL, APIs, and spreadsheets. The capability also allows users to create repeatable data preparation processes. When finished, users can send data directly to RapidMiner Studio or Auto Model for model creation. The data can be saved as an Excel or CSV file or used in data visualization software.
RapidMiner 9 features improved time series modeling and forecasting, as well as new governance features that support large deployments. Enterprise deployments of RapidMiner Server will come pre-loaded with several security enhancements, and new anomaly detection and discretize operators are present in RapidMiner Radoop.
In a press statement, the company’s founder Ingo Mierswa said: “With Turbo Prep, analysts now have access to a purpose-built data prep experience right inside RapidMiner Studio. When combined with RapidMiner Auto Model, analysts can now easily build predictive models on their own. Even experienced data scientists will love the productivity gains they’ll get with Turbo Prep.”
