if you do not know what data mining is, here is some info about it below:


Data are any facts, numbers, or text that can be processed by a computer. Today, organizations are accumulating vast and growing amounts of data in different formats and different databases. This includes:

operational or transactional data such as, sales, cost, inventory, payroll, and accounting

nonoperational data, such as industry sales, forecast data, and macro economic data

meta data - data about the data itself, such as logical database design or data dictionary definitions


The patterns, associations, or relationships among all this data can provide information. For example, analysis of retail point of sale transaction data can yield information on which products are selling and when.

Information can be converted into knowledge about historical patterns and future trends. For example, summary information on retail supermarket sales can be analyzed in light of promotional efforts to provide knowledge of consumer buying behavior. Thus, a manufacturer or retailer could determine which items are most susceptible to promotional efforts.
