In nearly every area of business and science – even in our private life- we are confronted with an increase in data flows. Data that is collected and processed. Data that holds valuable information, and may provide us knowledge, but often is inaccessible because of its form and volume.

The book is enhanced by a CD-rom, containing the full book text and many tutorials, reports, and papers both deepening and widening the view. All textual data is accessible through an integrated Text mining tool.
Many of the techniques from the technical part of the book can be explored through freeware and demo software included on the CD-rom.
