Michael Berthold

Michael Berthold is one of the founders of KNIME and an advocate of open analytics platforms. He is also professor at Konstanz University (currently on sabbatical at UCB) and does research on widened data mining algorithms and bisociative knowledge discovery. Ask him what that means if you are interested.


Rosaria Silipo

Rosaria Silipo is not only expert in data mining, machine learning, reporting, and data warehousing, she has become a recognized expert of the KNIME data mining engine, on which she published three books: (KNIME Beginner’s Luck, The KNIME Cookbook, The KNIME Booklet for SAS Users). Previously she worked as a freelancer data analyst for many companies throughout Europe and lead the SAS development group at Viseca.


KNIME strongly believes your data belongs to you. KNIME does not lock your data into proprietary tools nor do we believe that KNIME solves all of the world’s data problems alone – instead, KNIME integrates seamlessly with specialized, state of the art tools out there: for text and network mining, statistical data analysis, and advanced visualization to name just a few areas. And we, as well as the KNIME community, keep adding support for new data types and new tools.
KNIME (pronounced [naim]) is a user-friendly graphical workbench for the entire analysis process: data access, data transformation, initial investigation, powerful predictive analytics, visualization and reporting. The open (source) integration platform provides over 1000 modules (nodes), including those of the KNIME community and its extensive partner network.
KNIME can be downloaded onto the desktop and used free of charge. KNIME products include additional functionalities such as shared repositories, authentication, remote execution, scheduling, SOA integration and a web user interface as well as world-class support. Robust big data extensions are available for distributed frameworks such as Hadoop. KNIME is used by over 3000 organizations in more than 60 countries.
