Data Management
After studying this week’s assigned readings (Attached PPT), discussion the following:
1.  What are the business costs or risks of poor data quality? Support your discussion with at least 3 references.
2.  What is data mining? Support your discussion with at least 3 references.
3.  What is text mining? Support your discussion with at least 3 references.
Please use APA throughout. 
 Remember your initial post is due by Wednesday night and two (2) follow-up  responses.
In your response to your classmates, consider comparing your articles to those of your classmates. Below are additional suggestions on how to respond to your classmates’ discussions:

Ask a probing question, substantiated with additional background information, evidence or research.
Share an insight from having read your colleagues’ postings, synthesizing the information to provide new perspectives.
Offer and support an alternative perspective using readings from the classroom or from your own research.
Validate an idea with your own experience and additional research.
Make a suggestion based on additional evidence drawn from readings or after synthesizing multiple postings.
Expand on your colleagues’ postings by providing additional insights or contrasting perspectives based on readings and evidence.

Grading for discussions.

All discussions must be completed on-time and must include in-text citations and references in APA style formatting. If you do not use in-text citations or they are not in APA format you will lose 3 points.  If you do not have references or if they are not in APA format, you will lose 5 points. (You do not need citations and references for secondary posts).
 You will lose 10% based on word count if your posts are too short.  For example, your initial post is 300 words, if you have 250 words you will lose 5 points.  50 words short times 10% (50 x .10 = 5).
 If any part of your post is copied and pasted (ANY POST), you will receive a “0”.  I will not ask you about it and you will not have a chance to resubmit the post.
 If your post is late, you will lose points depending on how late the post is.  No points will be given for any assignment posted after the discussion ends Sunday night.
