Thanks for moving my comment to the discussion area. I have just started following PMML group in Analytic Bridge, so I did not know where I should post it.

I look forward to having a useful discussion with members.

Hi Alex,

Thank you so much for inviting me and starting PMML discussion. This is wonderful.

SPSS products export many PMML model types and consume them too.

Have a great day.

Fair Isaac's Model Builder product supports the generation of PMML and their Blaze Advisor(tm) business rules management system is a valid consumer. Also I think Pegasystems can consume PMML as can Chordiant Decision Manager.

Hi Alex,

Thanks for starting this group. Hopefully we'll see some interesting discussions. Weka has only limited import support for PMML so far (three model types). My plans are to expand this in the near future and then move on to consider exporting PMML.
