Welcome to Tom Khabaza’s website.  Read on for straightforward explanations of data mining and predictive analytics.


Data mining is an analytical business process which applies business knowledge to data in order to achieve business goals, creating new business knowledge and often using predictive modelling algorithms.  Predictive analytics is a family of business solutions which embed data mining and predictive modelling into a business process.  Data mining is the “predictive core” of predictive analytics.


Tom’s mission is to create an effective data mining and predictive analytics capability in the business community, based on a widespread understanding of the nature and benefits of data mining.
