Oracle Books Data Mining: Building Competitive Advantage
By: Robert Groth
Textbook Binding - 266 pages (October 18, 1999)
Prentice Hall

This text, Data Mining: Building Competitive Advantage, resulted from the revelation that data mining is becoming mainstream and that there are few books about data mining devoted to the business professional. It provides an innovative, easy approach to learning data mining for business professionals, students, and consultants. The CD-ROM at the back of the book makes learning data mining a hands-on activity. You can try out different software packages available for data mining and learn how the se tools are being used to solve industry problems. This book focuses on how knowledge discovery is used in different industries, and discusses several of the data-mining software products available. Sample studies are provided for specific industries, including retail, banking, insurance, and healthcare. This text takes a different approach to introducing data mining than the academic books currently on the market. The focus of this book is on industry applications, discussions of specific busi ness problems, and a hands-on teaching style to demonstrate how tools can be used to attain business benefit.

Oracle Books Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques with Java Implementations
By: H. Witten, Eibe Frank
Paperback - 416 pages (October 13, 1999)
Morgan Kaufmann Publishers

Data mining techniques are used to power intelligent software, both on and off the Internet. Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools explains the magic behind information extraction in a book that succeeds at bringing the latest in computer science research to any IS manager or developer. In addition, this book provides an opportunity for the authors to showcase their powerful reusable Java class library for building custom data mining software.This text is remarkable with its comprehensiv e review of recent research on machine learning, all told in a very approachable style. (While there is plenty of math in some sections, the authors' explanations are always clear.) The book tours the nature of machine learning and how it can be used to find predictive patterns in data comprehensible to managers and developers alike. And they use sample data (for such topics as weather, contact lens prescriptions, and flowers) to illustrate key concepts. After setting out to explain the types of machine learning models (like decision trees and classification rules), the book surveys algorithms used to implement them, plus strategies for improving performance and the reliability of results. Later the book turns to the authors' downloadable Weka (rhymes with "Mecca") Java class library, which lets you experiment with data mining hands-on and gets you started with this technology in custom applications. Final sections look at the bright prospects for data mining and machine learning on th e Internet (for example, in Web search engines).
