CHICAGO, USA: The Data Mining Group announced the release of PMML v 4.2.
PMML is an application and system independent XML interchange format for statistical and data mining models. The goal of the PMML standard is to encapsulate a model independent of applications or systems in such a way that two different applications (the PMML Producer and Consumer) can use it.
"As a standard, PMML provides the glue to unify data science and operational IT. With one common process and standard, PMML is the missing piece for Big Data initiatives to enable rapid deployment of data mining models. Broad vendor support and rapid customer adoption demonstrates that PMML delivers on its promise to reduce cost, complexity and risk of predictive analytics," says Alex Guazzelli, VP of Analytics, Zementis.
"You can not build and deploy predictive models over big data without using multiple models and no one should build multiple models without PMML," says Bob Grossman, founder and partner at Open Data Group.
