To mine or not to mine? That's the question....from a developer's perspective
In the past few years, Data Mining has taken a giant leap from being an exotic technology accessible to a small number of highly skilled professionals to being a broadly available and accessible platform for both IT pros and developers. The talk features Rafal Lukawiecki (Project Botticelli) and Ciprian Jichici (Genisoft, Microsoft Regional Director) in a debate about the impact that the new world of Data Mining will have on regular software developers. The discussion also covers issues related to Data Mining improvements in SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services as well as future directions of development.
