What do people do with their databases? The following tasks relate to two database trends that occur with very large organisations and their databases. Each of the following tasks relates to (a) data warehouses and (b) data mining.
  1. Describe what each is.
  2. Outline the benefits that can be gained by organisations that keep these.
  3. Explain with examples how each could potentially be abused.
  4. Using the internet, identify two companies that do each (for a total of four companies) and justify (with examples) the use of such methods for each company.
