Data mining the extraction of hidden predictive information from large databases is a powerful new technology with great potential to help companies focus on the most important information in their data warehouses. The development and application of data mining algorithms requires the use of powerful software tools. As the number of available tools continues to grow, the choice of the most suitable tool becomes increasingly difficult. This paper attempts to support the decision-making process by discussing the historical development and presenting a range of existing state-of-the-art data mining and related tools.
