Data Mining

OVERVIEW

Data Mining is a sub-field in computer science. The traditional database can query limited information from the database using SQL. At best, you can write complex queries and get results.

When the size of the database grow the traditional DBMS does not help.

The goal of data mining is to extract meaningful information from a large data set and present it in a useful and understandable manner.

Data mining has become very important in last few years because there has been an exponential increase in data from various sources and also, the data storage technology is also improving day-by-day.

Business Organizations and various institutions are interested in discovering interesting information from their huge data-sets.
