Mumbai University-Fourth / Final Year -Semester VII Information Technology Syllabus (Revised) DATA WAREHOUSING AND MINING & BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE




























Prerequisite: Data Base Management System

Objective: Today is the era characterized by Information Overload – Minimum knowledge. Every business must rely extensively on data analysis to increase productivity and survive competition. This course provides a comprehensive introduction to data mining problems concepts with particular emphasis on business intelligence applications. The three main goals of the course are to enable students to: 1. Approach business problems data-analytically by identifying opportunities to derive business value from data. 2. know the basics of data mining techniques and how they can be applied to extract relevant business intelligence.

1. Introduction to Data Mining: Motivation for Data Mining, Data Mining-Definition & Functionalities, Classification of DM systems, DM task primitives, Integration of a Data Mining system with a Database or a Data Warehouse, Major issues in Data Mining.

2. Data Warehousing – (Overview Only): Overview of concepts like star schema, fact and dimension tables, OLAP operations, From OLAP to Data Mining.

3. Data Preprocessing: Why? Descriptive Data Summarization, Data Cleaning: Missing Values, Noisy Data, Data Integration and Transformation. Data Reduction:-Data Cube Aggregation, Dimensionality reduction, Data Compression, Numerosity Reduction, Data Discretization and Concept hierarchy generation for numerical and categorical data.

4. Mining Frequent Patterns, Associations, and Correlations: Market Basket Analysis, Frequent Itemsets, Closed Itemsets, and Association Rules, Frequent Pattern Mining, Efficient and Scalable Frequent Itemset Mining Methods, The Apriori Algorithm for finding Frequent Itemsets Using Candidate Generation, Generating Association Rules from Frequent Itemsets, Improving the Efficiency of Apriori, Frequent Itemsets without Candidate Generation using FP Tree, Mining Multilevel Association Rules, Mining Multidimensional Association Rules, From Association Mining to Correlation Analysis, Constraint-Based Association Mining.

5. Classification & Prediction: What is it? Issues regarding Classification and prediction:
Classification methods: Decision tree, Bayesian Classification, Rule based
Prediction: Linear and non linear regression

Accuracy and Error measures, Evaluating the accuracy of a Classifier or Predictor.

6. Cluster Analysis: What is it? Types of Data in cluster analysis, Categories of clustering methods, Partitioning methods – K-Means, K-Mediods. Hierarchical Clustering- Agglomerative and Divisive Clustering, BIRCH and ROCK methods, DBSCAN, Outlier Analysis

7. Mining Stream and Sequence Data: What is stream data? Classification, Clustering Association Mining in stream data. Mining Sequence Patterns in Transactional Databases.

8. Spatial Data and Text Mining: Spatial Data Cube Construction and Spatial OLAP, Mining Spatial Association and Co-location Patterns, Spatial Clustering Methods, Spatial Classification and Spatial Trend Analysis. Text Mining Text Data Analysis and Information Retrieval, Dimensionality Reduction for Text, Text Mining Approaches.

9. Web Mining: Web mining introduction, Web Content Mining, Web Structure Mining, Web Usage mining, Automatic Classification of web Documents.

10. Data Mining for Business Intelligence Applications: Data mining for business Applications like Balanced Scorecard, Fraud Detection, Clickstream Mining, Market Segmentation, retail industry, telecommunications industry, banking & finance and CRM etc.
