Time series data is one of the most useful sources for data mining. Whether it be estimating future gasoline prices or understanding the relationship between the weather and sales, there is a role for time series analysis. In the new release of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Data Mining, Microsoft has introduced some important enhancements to our support in this area, making powerful analysis both more effective and easier to use. In this webcast, we not only introduce these new features, but we also cover many of the business scenarios for which time series prediction is invaluable.
