Abstract: Data mining is a process to discover useful patterns in large volumes of data through the application of appropriated algorithms, tools, and techniques. However, building scalable, extensible, and easy-to-use data mining systems has proved to be a very difficult task. This paper presents the web platform called SMINER, which aims at interoperability and facility of integration in the development of data mining applications. The platform is based on the paradigm of service-oriented architecture (SOA) using the web services standard for extensibility and interoperability. This platform is composed of two main components: 1) web services, which implement data mining algorithms; 2) a user web interface, which can be used for modelling applications that use the services of the platform. Experimental results demonstrate that our SOA-based platform makes it easy to construct a flexible and scalable data mining system.

Keywords: service-oriented architecture; SOA; web services: data mining; interoperability; integration; extensibility; modelling.
