Data Mining Enhancements
Data mining technology analyzes data in relational databases and OLAP cubes to discover information of interest. The data mining features of Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 Analysis Services are incorporated in an open and extensible implementation of the new OLE DB for Data Mining specification. SQL Server 2000 includes data mining algorithms developed by Microsoft Research.
Analysis Services has incorporated data mining technology so that you can use it to discover information in relational databases and in OLAP cubes in Analysis Services. You can use the results of data mining to create a dimension that you can add to a cube to further analyze your data. For more information, see Data Mining Models.
