    Is anybody using the Excel 2007 version of the data mining add-in with
    Excel 2010 successfully yet? From what I can fathom out there is no
    2010 version yet.

    There doesn't appear to be any information on setting this up for 2010
    including Microsoft.

    I have also posted this at microsoft.public.excel

    Microsoft's Data Mining add-ins for Excel have some good functionality for data mining when you have the SSAS infrastructure on-site, give admin access to users on the SSAS server, and use Excel 2007 (not sure if/when add-ins will support 2010 or 64 bit).

    Predixion Software has taken the concept further by creating "Predixion Insight" with all new 32/64 bit, Excel 2007/2010 add-ins that provide self-service predictive analytics - accessed via the cloud - which can be anywhere the user has an internet connection (public cloud) or on-premise (private cloud). The on-premise solution is a server that accesses SSAS/SQL instances. Our technology was developed by Jamie MacLennan, his Sr. Architect, Bogdan Crivat, and team. These two co-authored "Data Mining for SQl Server 2005/2008".

    Both solutions are also natively integrated to PowerPivot (meaning that you can perform predictive analytics against large datasets in PowerPivot and write back to the PowerPivot database - from which you can slice and dice predictive results and publish them to Sharepoint where they are accessible by anyone in the browser via Excel services. Predixion Insight also supports text mining.

    Check out www.predixionsoftware.com. The beta launched August 16th and continues to August 31 after which the product will be commercially available. Pricing starts at $99 per month for cloud access. Also track @predixionSW on Twitter.
