Exploring Data in Data Mining

Actually, it is the third step in the data mining process, as highlighted in the figure, is to explore the projected data. Building a mining model is part of a larger process that includes everything from asking questions about the data and creating a model to answer those questions, to deploying the model into a working environment. This process can be defined by using the following six basic steps:

    1. Defining the problem

    2. Preparing Data

    3. Exploring Data

    4. Building Models

    5. Exploring and Validating Models

    6. Deploying and Updating Models
