SaaS recommender systems


  • Peerius closed, product and e-commerce focused for live and email recommendations. Active and seems very interesting, although little information about the actual product and how it works is available.
  • Strands is a closed, product and e-commerce focused system. I think it works by including tracking scripts (a la Google Analytics) on the website, and recommendations widgets. What I really like about Strands is their publishing of case-studies e.g. Wireless Emporium and white papers like The Big promise of recommender systems. Although these do not discuss the exact solutions provided, they give a good overview of their vision and goals of providing recommendations.
  • SLI Systems Recommender A closed recommender system focused on e-commerce, search and mobile.
  • Using Hadoop on Google Cloud an example use of Google cloud with benchmarks from recommender system.
  • ParallelDots tool to relate published content

  • Azure ML machine learning platform to model data and create predictions
  • Gravity R&D is a company built by some of the winners from the 2009 Netflix prize. They offer a solution that provides targeted, customized recommendations to users of websites. They have some pretty big clients including DailyMotion and a technology page which describes their architecture, algorithms, and a list of publications. (suggested by Marton Vetes)
