With this new release, we are making ADAPA compliant with PMML 4.0, the latest version of the Predictive Model Markup Language.
PMML is the de-facto standard to represent data mining models. It allows for predictive models to be built in any of the top model building environments (commercial and open-source) and easily deployed in ADAPA, the Zementis decisioning engine platform.
Besides offering compliance with PMML 4.0, ADAPA is also able to automatically convert old PMML files (versions 2.0, 2.1, 3.0, 3.1, and 3.2) to 4.0. That's because it incorporates a PMML conversion process, which is able to validate, correct and convert files to PMML 4.0 automatically.
When models are deployed in ADAPA, they are made available right-away for execution in batch mode or real-time. Models can be accessed from anywhere in the enterprise via web services, the ADAPA web console, or Excel.
Compliance with PMML 4.0 allows ADAPA to officially support the following 4.0 features:
- Multi-class classification for Support Vector Machines (SVMs) for either one-against-one or one-against-all.
- Extended built-in functions for pre- and post-processing of input data:
- Functions for boolean operations: isMissing, isNotMissing, equal, notEqual, lessThan, lessOrEqual, greaterThan, greaterOrEqual, and, or, not, isIn, isNotIn
- IF-THEN-ELSE construct
Zementis is constantly working to make ADAPA even better. This new release is a testament to that.
