Many studies have shown that a good way to improve customer retention is to sell more products to the same custo-
mers, i.e. extend the portfolio of products or services bought from a given supplier. Of course, given a specific custo-
mer profile, companies would like to know what is the next most-likely product or service a customer is going to buy.
In analytical CRM, we build cross-sell/up-sell models, also known as NPTB (next product to buy) models. These enable
marketing analysts to target customers with the most appropriate product.

Since the recognition of the importance of antenatal as well as postnatal depression, a
number of studies have looked at the prevalence of depression among pregnant women in
the developed and developing world. Prevalence rates vary because of a variety of
The need for Business Intelligence (BI) solutions and data analysis has always
existed, and so have different approaches to fulfill this need. Traditional BI software
has heavily relied on techniques that have been around and persisted through the
decades, but newer technologies have emerged in recent times that have proven
to be more flexible and, therefore, more adequate for the evolving environment in
which they are used. QlikView is an example of this kind of disruptive technology, a
kind of software that changes the rules of the game.
QlikView is different; that's a fact.
A marketing plan is essential for every horticultural business and for efficient and
effective marketing of any horticultural product or service. A marketing plan serves as a
road map. It establishes objectives, recommended actions, and timing for achieving the
objectives. An understanding of the marketing planning process is also a valuable aid in
helping managers organize their thinking about the marketing process and the various
methods and procedures used. A strategic marketing plan takes into account the market
environment facing the business (e.g.
Greenplum Database utilizes a shared-nothing, massively parallel processing (MPP) architecture that has been
designed for business intelligence and analytical processing. Most of today’s general-purpose relational database
management systems are designed for Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) applications. Since these systems are
marketed as supporting data warehousing and business intelligence (BI) applications, their customers have inevitably
inherited this less-than-optimal architecture.
The emergence of the data warehouse as a repository, advances in data cleansing, increased
capabilities of hardware and software, and the emergence of the web architecture all combine to
create a richer business intelligence environment than was available previously.
Although business intelligence systems are widely used in industry, research about them is
limited. This paper, in addition to being a tutorial, proposes a BI framework and potential
While business traditionally seeks precision and practicality as the basis for its planning
efforts, sustainable development is a concept that is not amenable to simple and universal
definition. It is fluid, and changes over time in response to increased information and
society’s evolving priorities.
The role of business in contributing to sustainable development remains indefinite. While
all business enterprises can make a contribution towards its attainment, the ability to
make a difference varies by sector and organization size.

SQL Server 2008 represents a sizable jump forward in scalability, performance, and usability for the DBA, developer, and business intelligence (BI) developer. It is no longer unheard of to have 20-terabyte databases running on a SQL Server. SQL Server administration used to just be the job of a database administrator (DBA), but as SQL Server proliferates throughout smaller companies
