Best Books for Data Warehousing and Mining:
Data Mining is the procedure for searching out or looking out for patters in a given set of data. These data patterns quiet often prove useful and meaningful,for providing an insight to whoever is interested in these kind of data patterns. Data patterns are also very useful in detecting cyber crimes and frauds, they also come in handy to supermarkets and marketing campaigns and projects
