CambridgeSoft to Market KNIME Open Source Workflow Platform


CambridgeSoft said this week that it will market the KNIME data-integration and analysis platform and will work with KNIME’s developers to make its own products, such as its E-Notebook, compatible with the open source platform.

KNIME, short for the Konstanz Information Miner, was developed by researchers at Germany's University of Konstanz. The modular open source data exploration platform lets users create visual data pipelines, select and execute different types of analyses, and examine the results interactively.

CambridgeSoft signed the marketing and integration agreement with, a commercial entity that provides professional services for the KNIME platform.

In a statement, Michael Tomasic, CambridgeSoft’s president and CEO, said that by partnering with KNIME, the company is “ensuring that our customers benefit by being able to integrate CambridgeSoft’s Chem & Bio Office cloud…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.”

Michael Berthold, CEO of, added that his company is “looking forward to the addition of CambridgeSofts’s core technology to the open KNIME platform," and noted that the KNIME server already “allows direct calling of KNIME workflows as a web service,” thus providing the groundwork for “linking to CambridgeSoft’s E-Notebook.”
