  • Blog Post: Happy New Year with a big bang!

    It's been over 10 years that I've been working on data mining for SQL Server and the new year brings big changes for me.

  • Blog Post: More Data Mining in the Cloud?

    Since we released the Tech Preview of the Cloud Data Mining Addins last year, I've heard about and talked with Michael Zeller of Zementis.

  • Blog Post: Those kids won't eat anything!

    I did my BI Power Hour demo at PASS 2008 yesterday and it featured my twin boys Bowen and Logan. Logan (right) has an ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) that limits his diet (no milk products, gluten, or soy) and Bowen has some sensory issues, but that doesn't explain their extreme pickiness with food. ...

  • Blog Post: Data Mining Case Studies

    As I'm in the mood for finally responding to frequent requests, here is a list of case studies referring to SQL Server Data Mining on Microsoft.com.  Note that these are "marketing" case studies and are notoriously sparse on details, and that's aggravated by marketing focusing more on...
  • Blog Post: FREE Data Mining training by Rafal Lukawiecki

    Many people ask me fore pointers to data mining and this fell into my lap over the past few days.  I've blogged about Rafal before when he first took up speaking on data mining - now he's created a lot of new material and presented to audiences around the world.  Below is excerpted from a mail...
  • Blog Post: Screencasts, more screencasts, plus some scripts.

    Oddly enough, this week was a banner week for data mining screencast references.

    Karl Rexer of Rexer analytics has taken up a hobby of implementing a somewhat unscientific survey of data mining users to determine trends in the industry - see what kinds of software people are using - all that kind of stuff. In Karl's own words: " We would greatly appreciate it if you would: ...
  • Blog Post: Not the kind of surprise I was expecting....

    I'm in Amsterdam now for TechEd EMEA. Everytime you visit a different country there are lots of little surprises - even if you 've been there before.
