Although it may be desirable to allow vast access to information, some specific data marts and some details might require limited access. Metadata is also essential for management, organisation and the exploitation of the various activities. For an analyst it may be very useful to know how the profit variable was calculated, whether the sales areas were divided differently before a certain date, and how a multiperiod event was split in time. The metadata therefore helps to increase the value of the information present in the data warehouse because it becomes more reliable.

Var(Xh ) 48 APPLIED DATA MINING The covariance is an absolute index; that is, it can identify the presence of a relationship between two quantities but it says little about the degree of this relationship. In other words, to use the covariance as an exploratory index, it need to be normalised, making it a relative index. The maximum value that Cov(X, Y ) can assume is σx σy , the product of the two standard deviations of the variables.

The data matrix is the point where data mining starts. In some cases, such as a joint analysis of quantitative variables, it acts as the input of the analysis phase. Other cases require pre-analysis phases (preprocessing or data transformation). This leads to tables derived from data matrices. For example, in the joint analysis of qualitative variables, since it is impossible to carry out a quantitative analysis directly on the data matrix, it is a good idea to transform the data matrix into a contingency table.
