San Diego, CA and Zurich, Switzerland (PRWEB) February 18, 2009
Zementis, Inc., a leading provider of predictive analytics solutions, and KNIME.com GmbH, a software company focused on workflow tools for data mining, today announced a strategic partnership to deliver standards-based solutions across the data mining industry.
Zementis and KNIME are avid supporters of open standards. As the "lingua franca" for data mining and predictive analytics, both companies provide extensive support for the Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML) standard. The PMML standard continues to gain momentum, giving users a true option to exchange models between various software applications.
The KNIME platform provides a modular pipeline to visually create data flows, analyze and build predictive models, while the Zementis ADAPA scoring engine solves the last mile to deployment, integration, and scalable execution for such models in a typical IT production environment. Models created seamlessly in KNIME are readily deployed in Zementis ADAPA via PMML, adding a quantum leap in business agility, significantly reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) for predictive analytics and increasing their value to the enterprise.
"A true SaaS offering, the ADAPA Predictive Analytics Edition on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) requires zero client install and provides a pay-as-you-go option, eliminating need for the upfront investments in hardware or software licenses," said Dr. Michael Zeller, CEO of Zementis. "We are delighted to partner with KNIME to further embrace open standards and the synergies with the KNIME open-source workflow platform."
"We welcome our new partnership with Zementis because it fits perfectly with our overall strategy," said Prof. Michael Berthold, CEO of KNIME.com. "Zementis' adaptive decision technology will be a great complement to our product pipeline by adding an additional way to streamline the integration of KNIME into enterprise IT infrastructure. Being able to deploy predictive models fits in nicely with our grid support, server infrastructure and reporting toolkits."
Extending over and above product and technology synergies, the strategic partnership also complements the presence of both companies in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
