  1. Can anyone give any suggestions for great Data Mining and Business
    Intelligence products on the market for SQL Server 2005? Are the built-in
    products for this any good? I am just starting out looking into this. Thanks
    for any help is appreciated.

    Can anyone give any suggestions for great Data Mining and Business
    Have you checked Analysis Services 2005, part of the SQL Server 2005 suite?
    AS provides OLAP and Data Mining. In addition, it is worth checking Office
    2007 Data Mining Add-ins for Excel and Visio.

    Unless you have some special need, data mining software will typically
    be operated independently of the database, once an extract is pulled.
    You do not need to use Microsoft data mining tools with SQL Server:
    the field is wide open. See the 'Software' section on KDnuggets for a
    fairly comprehensive list of both free and commercial data mining
