Each business process engenders a certain amount of data. If, for instance, a book is ordered via Amazon, this transaction provides data about the customer, the ordered book, (if applicable) which other books have been looked at before the actual order, the time in which the order has been processed, the chosen payment method, etc. Due to the consequent informatin systems support of business processes (esp. ERP systems) all of these data are saved and so are basically available for an evaluation. Consequently, the interest in techniques and methods for evaluating data has increased rapidly within the last years. In this context, the buzzword Business Intelligence indicates an integrated IT-masterplan, which is able to offer feasible and interlinked solutions for different decision-making systems (Gluckowski/Kemper, 2006).
Main topic of this lecture are systems and methods for supporting business planning and decision problems.Therefore, especially issues relating to customer relationship management are considered. Within the framework of the latter, business intelligence and data mining applications are used particularly frequently.
Another Session is dedicated to applications of data mining techniques in the WWW-environment. For example, the term Web Mining has been established as a superset of techniques for the analysis of usage patterns (Lane Usage Mining), linking structures (web structure mining) and Web sites (Web Content Mining) . The latter becomes especially more important in terms of evaluating news articles or blog posts and is, inter alia, used for prediction in marketing and financial market developments. General principles of Web-mining and special aspects of the analysis of textual content in Opinion Mining are accordingly also a subject of the lecture.
The material is provided via STiNE for students who are registered for the course.
Literature recommendations are given during lectures.
