DM: RE: RE: data mining skeptics

From: Wennekes, Pim

Moving from the Industrial Revolution to the Information Revolution (Gartner Group, somewhere in the eighties), it's rather silly to say that AI/KDD/Datamining will vanish.

By now, we (the people) have started to accept monitoring systems like MIS, EIS, DSS and OLAP & Reporting. But whereas these systems only tells you WHAT is happening, KDD tells you (partly) WHY it's happening. Of course KDD won't bring you miracles by simply plug 'n play but the combination of business knowledge, understanding of KDD methologies & techniques and, so very true: a bit of scepticism of both you and your clients might give you the knowledge to save a lot of inefficiently spent money.

Yours truly,

I'm wondering what you'd say to people who are skeptical or even
toward data mining. I've just met people who really dislike data
and predict that the entire field won't last long. Since they're
my league, I couldn't convince them that data mining is a real field
won't vanish. Thanks.

P.S. My apology if this is a stupid question.
