Based around eleven international real life case studies and including contributions from leading experts in the field this groundbreaking book explores the need for the grid-enabling of data mining applications and provides a comprehensive study of the technology, techniques and management skills necessary to create them. This book provides a simultaneous design blueprint, user guide, and research agenda for current and future developments and will appeal to a broad audience; from developers and users of data mining and grid technology, to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students interested in this field.
