Data Mining

As IT technology in both hardware and software continues to grow, capturing and recording data is becoming increasingly cheaper and more prevalent. Some search engines, for examples, receives billions of queries and collects tera bytes of data daily. In view of the fact that data are becoming available in unprecedented volumes, harvesting and mining them to gain advantage in business and other activities is of crucial importance.

There are generally two ways in which you can benefit the advantages that data mining technology brings. The first is to make the best use of the data already collected and stored on your database. The second is to set up a system of data collection for the purpose of extracting valuable data from your clients or indeed systems. We aim to cover both data mining methods to give the reader an understanding and insight into the advantages of putting in place a data mining process. We will provide practical and hands-on examples for a better understanding and appreciation of the techniques involved.
