Data mining has emerged as one of the most active areas in information and c- munication technologies(ICT). With the boomingof the global economy,and ub- uitouscomputingandnetworkingacrosseverysectorand business,data andits deep analysis becomes a particularly important issue for enhancing the soft power of an organization, its production systems, decision-making and performance. The last ten years have seen ever-increasingapplications of data mining in business, gove- ment, social networks and the like. However, a crucial problem that prevents data mining from playing a strategic decision-support role in ICT is its usually limited decision-support power in the real world. Typical concerns include its actionability, workability, transferability, and the trustworthy, dependable, repeatable, operable and explainable capabilities of data mining algorithms, tools and outputs. This monograph, Domain Driven Data Mining, is motivated by the real-world challenges to and complexities of the current KDD methodologies and techniques, which are critical issues faced by data mining, as well as the ?ndings, thoughts and lessons learned in conducting several large-scale real-world data mining bu- ness applications.
The aim and objective of domain driven data mining is to study effective and ef?cient methodologies, techniques, tools, and applications that can discover and deliver actionable knowledge that can be passed on to business people for direct decision-making and action-taking.
