Data mining is a set of tools, techniques and methods that can be used to find new, hidden or unexpected patterns from a large volume of data typically stored in a data warehouse. Results obtained from data mining help an organization in more effective individual and group decision-making. Regardless of the specific technique, data mining methods can be classified by the function they perform or by their class of application.
