Data mining has been an effective technique in helping organizations to uncover hidden patterns within the organization's data in order to gain a competitive edge. With the potential opportunities data mining could bring, it has led to an increasing demand of data mining tools. Data mining tools often face challenges to be designed to cater for a vast option of data sources, data mining techniques and reporting formats in order to support the dynamic changing requirements. New data mining techniques, data sources or reporting may not be able to be supported by some existing data mining tools.
