DW – Data Mining Tools

Data mining is the concept extracting relationships and patterns from the data of operational systems.

The main advantage is we can predict the relationship/Patterns.

This is fast growing technology. In the market many tools are available. Each has its own merits and demerits. Basically you need data warehousing knowledge to get further into mining:

Available Tools (source dataminingtools)
