Last week the news broke that Gartner Research placed Rapidminer in the Leader Quadrant for Advanced Analytics. I can't say that I was surprised at the news, but I was extremely happy to know that we share the Leader Space with names like IBM and SAS.
The report is a great read about all the competitors in the space and the breakdown of their pros and cons. It's a very comprehensive report and I urge any interested readers to download the free report off the Rapidminer site. You can access it here.
