Preparing for Microsoft SQL Server Data MiningLast updated: October 28, 2014SQL Server You will need SQL Server 2008 or higher; please include Database Engine, Integration Services, and AnalysisServices. For SQL Server 2012 or 2014, you need the Multidimensional and Data Mining Mode for Analysis Services.(You may optionally install semantic search in SQL Server 2012 or 2014, print out the following directions beforeinstalling: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg509085 )o SQL Server 2008 or 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition (or Developer Edition) The requirements for SQL Server2008 are on http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506(v=SQL.100).aspx All client tools should beinstalled, including SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) and Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS).Directions for installation are at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143219(v=SQL.100).aspxo SQL Server 2012 or 2014 Business Intelligence Edition or Enterprise Edition (or Developer Edition) Therequirements for SQL Server 2014 are on http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506 and include NET 3.5SP1 (.NET 4.0 is also required, but it is installed during installation)All client tools should be installed, including SQLServer Management Studio (SSMS) and SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT). Directions for installation are athttp://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143219(v=sql.120).aspx Click http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/en/us/get-sql-server/try-it.aspx for a 180-day trial version of SQL Server2014 Make sure you run Windows Update to have all the latest service packs and security updates applied 17. Microsoft Office (Data mining does not integrate with the browser-based Office 365, which is otherwise a nice product.) You will need Office 2007 or higher (with Excel) along with the free data mining add-in:o For Office 2007: The 32-bit data mining add-in works with SQL Server 2008 or 2008 R2:http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7294o For Office 2010: The 32- or 64-bit data mining add-in works with SQL Server 2012 or earlier:http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35578o For Office 2013: The 32- or 64-bit data mining add-in works with SQL Server 2012 or earlier:http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35578 Install the add-in, and choose all the parts (sometimes not all the parts are checked). After installation, run the Server Configuration Utility (from the Windows menu) to make sure you can connectfrom Excel to Analysis Services. Please also open the Sample Excel Data (Excel Workbook) to see if you can see theData Mining tab, and also connect to Analysis Services. If you need help, there is a separate Help and Documentationlink (which comes up either from Excel or from the Windows menu).o You will need to have your own instance of an Analysis Services database, where you have administrativeprivileges (allowing both read and write access); if you have any questions on this point, please talk with aprofessional in your Information Technology group.
