Overview

It is quite clear that the world is awash in all kinds of data. In fact, the sheer volume of data adds little value to human activity and choices. The key to the vast amounts of data and information available to us is to distill and organize the data into information that we can productively use. Therefore, the most desirable information is that information which can be used to provide insight and intelligence for actionable strategies. DATA ENGINEERING: Mining, Information and Intelligence focuses specifically on applied information-warehousing and data-mining research that is being used or can be used by both academic researchers and industry enterprises. Moreover, the book will be the first to categorize and synthesize the diverse methodologies that are used in these interrelated fields into a structured approach entitled, Data Engineering.
