In this chapter, we learned the meaning of data mining. We learned the importance of domain knowledge in performing analysis and how to perform data mining in a systematic manner. We also learned how to present the results of data mining. Toward the end, we took an example and performed a few analyses to extract useful information.

In the next chapter, you'll learn about how to create visualizations on data and where to apply different kinds of visualizations.
