The goal of this assessment is to develop the business analysis skills of the students through a real-world scenario. In order to do that, each group consists of maximum three students will choose a public data set from the following links after consulting with the Lecturer.
After choosing a data set, let’s assume, you have been hired as a data miner / business analyst to do a thorough data mining process on the initiative for an organisation. To do the work properly you will need to consider (and do as you see you fit) all the activities described in the attached document on the data mining process (make any assumptions if required).
1 Identify the Problem Area
Identify the problem area (e.g., Marketing, Customer Care, Business Development, etc.). Describe the problem in general terms. Check the current status of the project (e.g., Check if it is already clear within the business unit that we are performing a data mining project or do we need to advertise data mining as a key technology in the business?). Clarify prerequisites of the project (e.g., what is the motivation of the
project? Does the business already use data mining?). Identify target groups for the project result (e.g., Do we expect a written report for top management or do we expect a running system that is used by naive end users?). Identify the users’ needs and expectations.
