The term Data Mining grew from the relentless growth of techniques used to interrogation masses of data. As a myriad of databases emanated from disparate industries, management insisted their information officers develop methodology to exploit the knowledge held in their repositories. The process of extracting this knowledge evolved as an interdisciplinary field of computer science within academia. This included study into statistics, database management and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Science and technology provide the stimulus for an extremely rapid transformation from data acquisition to enterprise knowledge management systems.
