Predixion becomes first cloud vendor to build predictive models using Mahout’s algorithms on big data with an easy to use Microsoft Excel-based Front End


Las Vegas, NV – May 22, 2012Predixion Software is demonstrating integration of Predixion Insight™, the company’s flagship collaborative predictive analytics solution with Apache Mahout, the native Hadoop predictive algorithm library. This ground-breaking solution enables users to build predictive models with Predixion Insight for Excel™, score those models with huge datasets natively in Hadoop, and automatically use Predixion’s award winning data visualizations to explore those models and results then publish them via portals and applications for end users.


This innovation allows EMC customers to fully leverage their big data investments by adding compelling and easy to use predictive capabilities with their Hadoop solutions and establishes Predixion Software as the leading enterprise standard for the deployment of predictive analytics solutions on Hadoop. After a beta trial period, Predixion Software will offer an integrated Apache Mahout-based stack containing all the components necessary for production use, thereby lowering the technical bar for companies wanting predictive analytics capabilities with their Hadoop big data.


Predixion Software is demonstrating this solution at EMC World 2012.  Predixion is exhibiting in booth #1142.  Companies interested in participating in the beta program can sign up here.


Predixion has created Excel-based modeling solutions and an automated deployment framework designed to simplify the process of creating, sharing, and collaborating on models across an enterprise, automating predictions directly from source data to portals or business applications, and squeezing complexity out of the end user experience, resulting in self-service predictive analytics.  Predixion Insight is available as a subscriptions based cloud service and as an on-premises solution for organizations such as healthcare, financial services firms and others.  


“Predixion has always been focused on delivering advanced, easy-to-use predictive analytics solutions that turn business analysts into predictive analysts and pushing results through the last mile into the hands of knowledge workers who need it most,” said Predixion co-founder and CEO Simon Arkell.   “And now with this innovation we are taking this concept to the big data movement such that any company using or considering Apache Hadoop and wanting predictive analytics can deploy such solutions without requiring extensive custom coding and scripting.  We have always believed there to be a large market for companies looking to cost-effectively integrate machine learning with their business intelligence applications and now we are doing it with Hadoop. These advances establish Predixion as the defacto standard for machine learning in a Hadoop environment,” Arkell said.
