How to dig out the gems from the world´s vast trove of technological information A business´s competitiveness depends on the effective use of the vast amounts of information available. Tech Mining: Exploiting New Technologies for Competitive Advantage shows technology managers and other professionals not only how to sift through the chaff and get to the key kernels that lead to innovation-in short, information management-but how to make better use of information leads in order to make better decisions. Tech Mining explains how to use the available software tools, including generic search engines and standard MS Office capabilities, in conjunction with text mining software such as VantagePoint(r), in order to quickly access the technological information needed to gain critical competitive advantage. With screen shots and charts throughout, the book shows the reader how to: * Select and access the most valuable technology information resources * Search, retrieve, and clean information on topics of interest * Analyze huge quantities of information on emerging technologies to locate nuggets of value and to see the overall development profile * Identify technological trends and forecast likely future developments * Gauge prospects for successful technological innovation using tailored * innovation indicators * Integrate empirical findings with expert opinion to provide compelling answers to managerial questions With Web-based practice datasets and the VantagePoint reader software, Tech Mining will take managers and their enterprises beyond common information management to become wiser consumers-and exploiters-of today´s science and technology.

In den riesigen Datenbergen moderner Datenbanken steckt unentdecktes Wissen, das ohne geeignete Hilfsmittel kaum zu Tage gefördert werden kann. Hier setzt das Data Mining an und liefert Methoden und Algorithmen, um bisher unbekannte Zusammenhänge zu entdecken. Nach der Vermittlung der Grundlagen und Anwendungsklassen des Data Mining in den ersten beiden Kapiteln wird in Kapitel 3 auf geeignete Darstellungsmöglichkeiten für Data-Mining-Modelle eingegangen; Kapitel 4 behandelt die Algorithmen und Verfahrensklassen, Kapitel 5 geht auf konkrete Anwendungsarchitekturen ein. Das Buch deckt den Stoff einer einsemestrigen Vorlesung zu Data Mining an Universitäten oder Fachhochschulen ab und ist als klassisches Lehrbuch konzipiert. Es bietet Zusammenfassungen, zahlreiche Beispiele und Übungsaufgaben.
