Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.
According to the Association of Professional Futurists (n.d.), “A professional futurist is a person who studies the future in order to help people understand, anticipate, prepare for and gain advantage from coming changes. It is not the goal of a futurist to predict what will happen in the future. The futurist uses foresight to describe what could happen in the future and, in some cases, what should happen in the future.”
In your opinion, discuss what the future holds for the following topics:
- Data mining
- Data mining’s link to knowledge management
- Concepts related to a comprehensive business intelligence (BI) program and strategy
Although you are expressing your opinion, you must provide supportive examples and sources to support your opinion.
