Learn how to use Excel and Excel SQL Server Analysis Services to perform basic data mining and analysis.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Ron Davis and I want to introduce you to the land of Excel Data-Mining Fundamentals. In this course, we're going to cover some of the basics of data-mining and then we're going to go over and switch into Excel and do some actual data-mining. We'll apply different algorithms and we'll look at the output. The reason I'm particularly excited about that is today, because of the Excel data-mining plug ins, you do not need to be a statistician to actually do data-mining. Once you learn some basics as far as shaping your data and then look at the different algorithms and see what they're really intended to do, you can go through and start exploring your own data and you will grow from that and start using data-mining.
Thanks and let's get started.
