MIS 655 GCU Key Steps in Data Mining Used by Organizations
In the assigned reading for this topic, you learned that there are several methodologies for data mining including SEMMA and CRISP-DM, among others. Regardless of the model used, the steps are essentially the same. Summarize the key steps in the data mining process and provide a specific example of the type of activity that would be completed in each step. Why is it important to remember that the data mining process is not linear? How could viewing the process as linear hamper and impair the results of using the process? Provide examples to illustrate your ideas.
