Discover Data That Drives Business Forward

Whether forecasting future expenses, planning manufacturing production, predicting sales trends, or deriving an optimal trading strategy for securities, data mining and data forecasting can help organizations improve revenue, reduce costs, and mitigate risks.

Data Mining

Data mining algorithms help create valuable functionality for analytic applications. IMSL includes algorithms for regression analysis and chi-squared, plus advanced data mining techniques like genetic algorithms.

Data Forecasting

With data forecasting algorithms that range from correlation analysis to Naïve Bayes classification, IMSL data forecasting algorithms help organizations to create fast and accurate data forecasting applications.

Advanced Data Mining Algorithms

IMSL data mining algorithms like the genetic algorithm, or the Naïve Bayes algorithm can help companies gain insights from large bodies of data in order to create high-ROI strategies.


Genetic Algorithm for Data Mining

A genetic algorithm can provide valuable functionality for many data mining applications. For example, by identifying the best indicators that will determine if a credit card applicant will be a credit risk, or by identifying patterns in purchase behavior to enable companies to better target price discounts.
