CambridgeSoft and KNIME.com collaborate
At its User Meeting and Conference, CambridgeSoft, which provides software and services for discovery, analysis, and collaboration in the life sciences, and KNIME.com, the company behind the professional open source workflow tool KNIME, have announced a wide-ranging collaboration. Under the agreement, CambridgeSoft will sell, support, and service the KNIME platform in enterprise R&D environments, and both companies will work to tighten the integration of KNIME.com and CambridgeSoft products.
'I am looking very much forward to this collaboration between KNIME and CambridgeSoft -- it is exciting to see that one of the prime life-science solution vendors is able to support and service KNIME in a global context. We are also looking forward to the addition of CambridgeSoft's core technology to the open KNIME platform,' said Professor Michael Berthold, CEO of KNIME.com. 'The KNIME server allows direct calling of KNIME workflows as a web service, so this is already in place for linking to CambridgeSoft's E-Notebook, as an example.'
'It is a natural fit between our organisations," said Michael Tomasic, president and CEO of CambridgeSoft. 'CambridgeSoft's depth of service and support can provide global, multi-language and multi-timezone support for KNIME deployments. Our large professional service staff is experienced with KNIME, and is already using it to deploy novel applications with our customers. Further, with this agreement, we are ensuring that our customers benefit by being able to integrate CambridgeSoft's Chem & Bio Office cloud, enterprise and desktop products with the KNIME platform's workflow, analysis, and reporting ability in ways that will drive customers' interactive in-process collaborations and decision support to higher levels of efficiency.'
KNIME is the only open-source analytics tool that has been developed from day one using rigorous professional software engineering processes in conjunction with cutting-edge data analytics expertise from a university group. KNIME.com GmbH is located in Zurich, Switzerland.
