Data Mining is one of the important research areas. Data Mining is formed by the combination of words Data+Mining, which means, it mines the data to get knowledge from it because data is of no use unless knowledge can be fetched out of it. This seems to be important by taking into account the consideration that "The authors are data rich but information poor". Data mining is also called as Knowledge Discovery form Databases (KDD). Data Mining being quite similar to KDD but it always varies from the KDD in a manner that KDD is complete process by which get knowledge regarding any specific domain or application so that, this knowledge can be used for decision making purposes in business, industries etc.
