This research describes a study into the adoption of data mining (DM) techniques and tools in industry. They are seen by most companies interviewed as strategically important, with key applications varying per sector, but have not been seriously adopted by many. A framework reflecting issues pertaining to the adoption of data mining was proposed, and tested in interviews. Issues were divided into four main categories : Business Issues ; Data Mining Technology Issues ; Resource Issues and Organisational Issues. Results imply widely differing levels of importance attached to these, suggesting a revised framework of key barriers and enablers for successful adoption.
