I'm interested in finding information on training employees who use data mining applications (that are not vendor-specific). In other words, training on how to pull, analyze and use information from data mining applications.
Sid Adelman's Answer: First some definitions. The way we usually define data mining is discovery, not hypothesis testing. You don't have any preconceived propositions to test; you are looking for patterns and relationships in the data that will uncover some actionable gem. You will want to first decide who should get the training. The people who do best are analysts with a statistical background or interest. Herb Edelstein's organization, Two Crows, gives seminars on data mining. (www.twocrows.com)
