Data mining is the process of extraction of relevant information from data warehouse. It also refers to the analysis of the data using pattern matching techniques. With the continuous and extensive use of database for storage, there arises a need for the database management and retrieval of the required information. This paper discusses the data mining techniques used for the knowledge discovery of the databases. It also surveys the various data mining algorithms for the optimized mining of information.
