At A Glance: Data Mining

The data analyst is the person who takes the raw data a business has acquired through various means and examines it to form conclusions about the content. These specialists are used across a great number of industries and by different types of organizations to help in the making of better informed decisions, as well as to prove or disprove models or theories. Data analytics focuses on creating a conclusion based on the information provided as well as the experience and background knowledge of the analyst.

Data mining is another area of data analysis whereby the specialist takes the data provided and searches for patterns and relationships within it. He or she uncovers associations between one piece of data and another as well as paths that lead from one to another. Other specialist areas that a data miner works on include classification, clustering, and forecasting. The latter involves using the data collected to make reasonable predictions about the future and is often known as predictive analytics. Yet another area is web mining, the practice of using data from customer relationship management systems to look at users’ behaviors online.

If a business needs to hire data analysts and data mining specialists, both can be found on Upwork. By working with a freelancer on the online workplace, a business can access specialists who cover all the areas it requires and work with the data collected in a range of different ways to get the best possible results and help plan for the future of the business.
