Predictive Analytics Engine available as an iGoogle gadget

This was a posting in a group that I have at Facebook (Analytics, Data Mining, Predictive Modeling, Artificial Intelligence). As predicted on May 12, 2008, the next battleground between Google and Microsoft is going to be in the realm of business analytics. The science in this Google product is good, as is the science behind Microsoft Analysis Services too.

In my opinion Google is correct in assuming that the future business analytics is in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). I specifically addressed this topic on blog postings of March 10 and March 26

It allows for the uploading of data mining models expressed in PMML (Predictive Modeling Markup Language) for scoring. Model execution is done through Amazon EC2 and is free. A paid version which will allow for real-time scoring via web-services (as a SaaS - Software as a Service) is going to be launched in May. You can install the engine as an iGoogle gadget by following the link below: available is a converter gadget to convert old PMML to version 3.2: trees is next in the range of mining models that ADAPA supports. Have fun!Alex"
