If you ever wanted to learn data mining and predictive analysis, start right here! Microsoft SQL Server comes with easy-to-use data mining tools, requiring very little formal knowledge of the subject to get started. This free data mining video tutorial is the ﬁrst one in this series, dedicated to explaining how to perform advanced analytics of your own data. We explain: what is data mining, why would you use it, and how it is related to Big Data analytics.
You will also see two short demos in this module. The ﬁrst one shows how to detect anomalies (outliers) using Microsoft Excel as the data mining client to SQL Server data mining engine (2:45). The second one shows Market Basket Analysis with Association Rules algorithm, using SSDT, SQL Server Data Tools (11:22). If you like what you saw take a look at the other, free data mining video, What Are Decision Trees?
Once you have covered the basics, continue learning by watching the next module, Data Mining Concepts and Tools. You need to be a Full Access Member to access that video. We are adding new modules and articles regularly, focussing on diﬀerent aspects of data mining. Our aim is to help you study this technology in detail, to an advanced level. Consider purchasing an annual subscription—its modest price will be far outweighed by your newly gained analytical skills, while helping you save costs.
