What is payment status of customers (current, 30, 60, 90 days, etc.)? Thousands of other questions

DM Environment & Mining Data : 

DM Environment & Mining Data Data Mining group (team) is needed DM Infrastructure to support is needed

Data Mining Group : 

Data Mining Group Possible locations for such a group include Part of I.T. Outside organization – outsource this activity Part of marketing, finance, customer relationship management Interdisciplinary group across functional departments (e.g., marketing, finance, IT, etc.) Each of the above have advantages and disadvantages
