The use of data mining for sustaining development in GCC countries


Abstract: The aim of this paper is to examine the importance of data mining in sustaining development in Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. As a new technique, data mining enhances the potential of knowledge discovery for improving environmental management and facilitating socioeconomic transformation. Knowledge creation and information dissemination have become necessary for human endeavours. In the Arab world, the digital divide remains a matter of concern to policy makers, businesses and academicians. Building capacity driven by modern information and communication technologies could help in closing the knowledge gap and sustain development.
