Data mining has evolved over time. Initially, it was about looking back — historical data analysis to try to figure out what worked in the past and why. You can learn from the past, but business circumstances continually change and knowing what happened last month is not as useful as knowing what is happening today… or, what is likely to happen tomorrow.
Having a clear and accurate view of how you are doing and what is the future growth of your company is a massive benefit for any business. If you can judge with confidence what is coming, you can plan for the best and prepare for the worst. It allows for many possibilities such as redistributing or scaling up resources, allocating budgets effectively, adapting things like order size and storage requirements, and positioning your team and your finances to be as streamlined as possible. All of this is has a huge effect on the success of your business – and your bottom line.
Data mining solves problems by analyzing data you already have in your database… but it still takes the right skills, tools and insights to frame the questions right, and to make sense of it all. It is possible to find answers that already exist in your database that relate to your sales, profitability, customer retention & loyalty and more. The biggest challenge is to focus on the questions and areas that will most benefit your business.
As datasets continue to grow, data mining gets more complicated. You can collect more raw data drawn from more devices, locations and geographies. At the same time, the scope for finding insights will be even greater. So long as you can figure out how to mine and manipulate it effectively, you will be able to learn more about your business than ever before, helping you to understand precisely how each piece fits together – and how every action and business decision feeds into the mix.
The ways you interact with your data will become more varied and intelligent, encompassing natural speech, bots and machine learning features that predict what you need and automate huge chunks of the process.
