Evaluation of Datamining Tools

Evaluation of Datamining Tools

We are just starting the process of evaluating datamining and statistical anaylsis tools. Any suggestions regarding the evaluation process?

RE: Evaluation of Datamining Tools

1. Make sure that you know the difference between all the terms ('data mining', 'knowledge discovery', 'OLAP', etc.). Some manufacturers don't sell quite what they claim to.

2. Check out The Data Warehousing Information Centre for a large list of products http://pwp.starnetinc.com/larryg/

3. Read the OLAP Report http://www.olapreport.com/

4. Look at your analysis NEEDS before being overwhelmed by manufacturers' claims, and users' WANTS.

and there's probably lots more...
