“The process of using analytical tools to scan large data sets for patterns and provide insight to analysts and managers. The process emphasizes exploration of the data. Some people differentiate between data mining, business intelligence, and business analytics; but the three terms represent aspects of the same concepts. Machine or statistical learning can also be components, where data is used to train a system to identify categories and patterns so these can be used to make future decisions. Data mining typically includes tools to analyze data as well as to search and report data.”
