# Application examples

While the data mining tools in SPSS® Modeler can help solve a wide variety of business and organizational problems, the application examples provide brief, targeted introductions to specific modeling methods and techniques. The data sets used here are much smaller than the enormous data stores managed by some data miners, but the concepts and methods that are involved are scalable to real-world applications.

To access the examples, click Application Examples on the Help menu in SPSS Modeler.

The data files and sample streams are installed in the Demos folder under the product installation directory. For more information, see Demos Folder.
