DMX 101 - Time Series Prediction

Life is ironic: After the short rant about company willingness to use data mining, I was asked to mentor a client on it! They wanted to investigate the predictive capability of time series modelling.

Regardless of whether mining is applied in a descriptive or predictive manner, Analysis Services makes it easy to include some facet of data mining into operations (or at least investigate it). The use of DMX (Data Mining Extensions) makes it simple to create the model and obtain values from it and is equivalent to SQL for data mining. Some are surprised to find that BIDS is not required to create, train and query the model.
