As knowledge is becoming more and more synonymous to wealth creation and as a strategy plan for competing in the market, place can be no better than the information on which it is based, the importance of knowledge and information in today's business can never be seen as an exogenous factor to the business. Organizations and individuals having access to the right information at the right moment, have greater chances of being successful in the epoch of globalization and cut-throat competition.


Currently, huge electronic data repositories are being maintained by businesses across the globe. Valuable bits of information are embedded in these data repositories. The huge size of these data sources make it impossible for a human analyst to come up with interesting information that will help in the decision making process. Commercial enterprises have been quick to recognize the value of this concept, as a consequence of which the software market itself for data mining is expected to be in excess of 10 billion USD.


Business Intelligence focuses on discovering knowledge from various electronic data repositories, both internal and external, to support better decision making. Data mining techniques become important for this knowledge discovery from databases.

In most cases, these insights are driven by analyses of historical data.
