What Is Data Mining?

Data Mining is the art of exploring new, useful, and profitable relationships in data.

In every retail business, we study what happens in order to improve. We study our prospective customers. We study our actual customers. We study what we do and how we do it. We study whether our sales people are competent enough to bring the sales forecasted.
