Moreover, the target users of statistical tools are statisticians while data mining is designed for business people. This simply means that data mining tools are enhancement of statistical tools that blend many statistical algorithms together and possess a capability of handling more data in an automated manner as well as a userfriendly interface. The choice of an appropriate technique and timing depend on the nature of the data to be analyzed, the size of data sets and the type of methods to be mined.

Moreover, the performance of the model needs to be evaluated on a regular basis. The sequence of those phases is not rigid so moving back and forth between phases is allowed. Besides, the relationship could exist between any phases. At each review point, the next step has to be specified -- a step that can be either forward or backward.
