Smart Vision Europe Ltd is a Premier Business Partner to IBM, specialising in the IBM SPSS Suite of advanced and predictive analytics tools and solutions.
Our business is focused on enabling organisations including large and small & medium sized enterprises to take advantage of the business opportunities presented by the application of advanced analytics and predictive modelling techniques.
When we work with our clients to help them establish advanced and predictive analytics in their business we recommend working with and adopting a robust and well proven analytical methodology. Based on our extensive experience we choose to work with CRISP-DM. Cross Industry Standard Process for Data Mining.
We do not claim any ownership of the CRISP-DM methodology, we did not invent it. We are however evangelists of its powerful practicality, its flexibility and its applicability when using analytics to solve thorny business issues. It is the golden thread that runs through almost every client engagement.
We fund and support the creation and hosting of this web site, promoting and explaining CRISP-DM because we feel there is a lack of online resources and materials to help other advanced analytics practicioners.
Much of the content on this site can be attributed to an original document published in 2001 the CRISP-DM Step-by-Step Data Mining Guide. The original guide was authored by an original group of Data Mining pioneers: Pete Chapman (NCR), Julian Clinton (SPSS), Randy Kerber (NCR), Thomas Khabaza (SPSS), Thomas Reinartz (DaimlerChrysler), Colin Shearer (SPSS), and Rüdiger Wirth (DaimlerChrysler)
