Suggested text: From Wiley Books, Data Mining for Business Intelligence: Concepts, Techniques, and Applications in Microsoft Office Excel with XLMiner, features XLMiner and provides both a theoretical and practical understanding of the key methods of classification, prediction, reduction and exploration that are at the heart of data mining. In addition, it presents a business decision-making context for these methods and uses real business cases and data to illustrate the application and interpretation of these methods.
Data Pre-processing with Talend Open Studio
