Data Mining for Everyone
Business intelligence systems are key tools for providing organizations with important business insights, allowing for fast and reliable business decisions. Data warehousing is an integral part of the business intelligence systems used by many organizations. Data mining, by contrast, is not as widespread as data warehousing, even though it is a mature methodology and technology that can be used to help discover hidden patterns in data and to enable predictive capabilities. Data mining is not only an analytic tool for knowledge discovery; it is also an important part of analytical and operational business processes that operate in real time and thus contributes directly to a successful business.
