RapidMiner Appoints Michael Doane as Head of Channels and Alliances of the Americas Region

Industry Veteran to Provide Deep Predictive Analytics Expertise to Drive Key Partnerships and Accelerate Channel Growth via the RapidMiner Partner Network

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- Pioneering predictive analytics leader RapidMiner today announced it has appointed Michael Doane as the company's head of channels and alliances of the Americas region. Doane brings more than two decades of channel experience to the company and will be responsible for spearheading RapidMiner's partner network. In this role, he will be responsible for growing the company's network of resellers, distributors and partners in the Americas. Responsibilities include increasing revenue growth through the management and expansion of RapidMiner's network of systems integrator and consulting partners, extending RapidMiner's presence via resellers, further developing RapidMiner's OEM channel and managing strategic technology alliances.

"Michael offers vast experience in setting strategic direction for channel and alliance programs in the analytics market and executes efficiently to the benefit of our new and existing partners," said Ingo Mierswa, co-founder and CEO of RapidMiner. "Advanced analytics is one of the industry's hottest growth markets, and RapidMiner is a recognized leader in this field. Our partner network is a great way for third parties to capitalize on this, and Michael is a driving force behind this opportunity for our partners."

With more than 20 years of experience, Doane is a veteran channel sales and alliance executive with a proven record for delivering revenue-focused results with systems integrators, resellers, and original equipment manufacturers (OEM), technology companies and referral partners. Previously, Doane was the director of North American channel sales and the global relationship director for IBM at SPSS, a provider of predictive analytics solutions. At SPSS, Doane was tasked with the design, implementation and launch of the reseller program in North America, where he significantly increased the company's channel pipeline and sales revenues year over year, until its acquisition by IBM. Doane has held senior management positions in sales, channel sales and alliances at companies including PricewaterhouseCoopers, ecoInsight, Inc., Viewlocity, Inc, Netvendor, Inc. and E3 Corporation.

"Solving business problems that increase revenues through customer satisfaction and reduce expenses by combating fraud and retaining high-value employees are just a few of the high-value, high-ROI applications perfectly suited for the application of predictive analytics. Expanding RapidMiner's partner network to include companies focused on delivering these types of solutions is a strategic imperative for us that will deliver value to all stakeholders -- clients, partners and RapidMiner," said Doane. "RapidMiner is recognized as a thought leader and one of the best advanced analytics platforms on the market today. I am incredibly excited about joining this dynamic team and the opportunity to contribute to our continued growth through our partner network."
