I'm glad to announce that the third edition of our textbook Data Mining for Business Analytics (with Peter Bruce and Nitin Patel) is now available! We added several cool and useful new topics: ensembles, uplift modeling, collaborative filtering, social network analysis, and text mining. The new edition also includes new examples and cases and XLMiner screenshots updated with the current software version.
We updated "business intelligence" to "business analytics" in the title of the textbook to reflect the change in terminology since the last edition.
The foreword for the third edition is by University of Minnesota's Ravi Bapna, the Carlson Chair in Business Analytics who was one of the earliest users of the first edition and has been leading and heading many business analytics programs, research, and initiatives.
Thanks to all our readers and adopting instructors who've shared feedback and suggestions over the years. This vibrant community has helped us create a better book.
