Google has done ‘it’ for more than 10 years; amazon has adapted it, and we will start from now. I am talking about data analysis, with data mining mechanisms. My first ‘fault’ is to name data mining only, but calling ‘it’ knowledge discovery in database (KDD), would be more correct, I guess. Data mining only describes the analysis process. But there is a more comprehensive process to do before data mining activities can be started. Before I describe the KDD-process, I would also like to mention, that different types of data mining categories exist, which represent a different algorithm each. So we have to watch out when discussing data mining and KDD, and not to loose sight of the wood for the trees. The picture below illustrates the complete KDD process.
