KNIME recognised as leader in Gartner's 2019 Magic Quadrant


It’s no surprise to see that for the sixth year in a row, Gartner has placed KNIME, the open source platform for data driven innovation, as a leader for Data Science and Machine Learning Platforms for 2019 based on ability to execute and completeness of vision.

KNIME continues to innovate by supporting the latest trends in Machine Learning including Python, Spark, H2O and other deep learning platforms and fostering a vibrant and engaging user community. Our clients are amazed at the value it provides at such a low cost often 1/5th the cost of other comparable solutions.

As a leader, it not only demonstrates KNIME’s ability to execute but also through innovation by continuing its commitment to its open source beginnings. KNIME continues to be used the world over, removing the expensive barrier to entry other applications place in the way, transforming businesses.

“We have always believed it is the data science and machine learning community that ultimately decides what the leading platforms are. We are humbled by the response of KNIME users across all industries, continents, and application areas which has helped us achieve this honor,” says Michael Berthold, CEO, KNIME AG. “That community comprises not only users who use our software, but many who also contribute to it.”

“KNIME simply does it all within one platform, allowing you to mix and match and move seamlessly from prototyping to production as required, depending on the problem you are solving,” says Phil Winters, KNIME advocate and “Father of Customer Intelligence”. “For me as an individual, everything I do - regardless of scale - is free. I strongly believe that KNIME has set the standard that others must now scramble to follow.”

“We are continuing to not only add leading edge methods, but are also placing a strong emphasis on blueprints for Guided Analytics and Guided Automation. These are an extremely practical way of helping the KNIME community get “focused AI” applications into the hands of even more users,” continues Berthold. “Our commitment to open source is unwavering. This transparent business model works for everyone and we will keep it that way.”

KNIME - 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant Market Leader


For the fifth year in a row, KNIME® , the open source platform for data driven innovation, has been placed in the leader category in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Data Science and Machine Learning Platforms. The placement recognizes ability to execute and completeness of vision.

Gartner, Inc. describes leaders as having “a strong presence and significant mind share in the market. Resources skilled in their tools are readily available. Leaders demonstrate strength in depth and breadth across a full model development and implementation process. Leaders are in the strongest position to influence the market's growth and direction. This gives them the advantage of a clear understanding and strategy for the data science market, with which they can become disrupters themselves and develop thought leading and differentiating ideas.”

“To be recognized again as a leader, while also being significantly moved forward in vision and ability to execute, is humbling,” says Michael Berthold, CEO, KNIME AG. “We have a great community of users and enthusiasts who continually contribute to KNIME, and we are grateful for that. They are helping us build this open source platform that strives to be at the forefront of innovation.”

KNIME owes these accolades to its users from thousands of organizations (including many big players) across various industries, all enjoying the open source, free platform. “While other platforms are commercializing functionality, KNIME is continuing to cause a stir in the market by adding more functionality to the open source platform. The concept of adding the commercial KNIME Server for collaboration, automation, and deployment, without ever limiting open source usage is just brilliant,” comments Stefan Weingaertner, AI Associates. “It’s no wonder KNIME is in the leader category again this year.”

“We’re continuing to invest heavily in the development of our software to ensure our users have everything they need to get their job done, fast. We’re also ensuring there are simple and relevant ways to enable these users to share what they do with other members of their organization,” continues Berthold. “Our commitment to open source is solid and we’ve put everything on GitHub to back that up. This honest, transparent business model works for everyone and we plan on keeping it that way.”
