InfoSphere Warehouse Design Studio is a powerful tool to create data flows and mining flows for data transformation and data mining scenarios, but how good do you know all the flow operators and their properties? Wouldn't you like some guidance how you can deploy these operators to solve your business problem?
If you are a new or occasional user of the Design Studio mining editor, if you do not have the time to get familiar with the available set of operators and their properties, or if you simply are not sure if your manually created mining flow is a proper solution for your problem, you should take into account creating your mining flow using a flow wizard.
IBM InfoSphere Warehouse offers new wizards which help you to generate a mining flow for your business problem. The wizards guide you through the steps to assemble a complete, ready-to-run mining flow. The wizards ask you for the input and output tables that you want to use and allow you to define transformations and mining steps like modeling and scoring. You can watch how the resulting mining flow is growing or shrinking dependent on your input on the pages of the wizards. After you have created the mining flow, you can go back to the wizard, change the data you have entered, and recreate the flow at any time.
For example, if you want to analyze your customers, a wizard helps you to create a mining flow for Customer Segmentation. The wizard asks you if you have demographic or behavioral data about your customers, what part of this data (columns/rows) you want to use, if you want to create new columns from the data, how you want to join the data, what you want to do with the resulting segmentation model (e.g. you can visualize it or extract segmentation information from it), or if you want to apply the segmentation model to new data (scoring). The wizard ensures that the decisions and selections that you make on its pages are consistent and that a valid mining flow can be generated.
