Applications of data mining in software engineering

Software engineering processes are complex, and the related activities often produce a large number and variety of artefacts, making them well-suited to data mining. Recent years have seen an increase in the use of data mining techniques on such artefacts with the goal of analysing and improving software processes for a given organisation or project. After a brief survey of current uses, we offer insight into how data mining can make a significant contribution to the success of current software engineering efforts.
