Keeping Tabs on Your Data

In the previous article, I covered reasons to mine and store data for analysis and for resources. In this article, I'll offer dozens of tools that can help you keep tabs on your own resources and clients. But, before I offer those tools, I want to hand over a list of blogs that cover data mining, so you can learn more about how you can advance your business and sell more of your products and services through data mining.

25 Data Mining Blogs

While doing online research on data mining techniques, you can find all kinds of scholarly articles on the subject.  There are Web sites that define what data mining is, sites that go into detail about how it works and how different techniques may be used to get the information you want.  There are even sites that discuss the social and political ramifications of data mining.  But in today's world, information changes quickly and sometimes an article can be out of date only a few months after it was written.

This is when blogs come in handy.  Blogs are updated regularly, and good bloggers will keep up with changes in information and technology almost as soon as they happen.  Bloggers may even help readers who are new or unfamiliar with the subject to understand how things work better than any technical journal or website.
