  3. 3. Clementine provides data mining scalability by using a three-tiered architecture, as shown in this diagram. The Clementine Client tier (shown at the bottom) passes stream description language (SDL) to Clementine Server. Clementine Server then analyzes particular tasks to determine which it can execute in the database. After the database runs the tasks that it can process, it passes only the relevant aggregated tables to Clementine Server. Direct access to survey data in Dimensions products Runtime™ component, you can deploy data mining streams enables you to include demographic, attitudinal, and to your database to run in the background of other behavioral information in your models—rounding out your operational processes. Scores or recommendations are understanding of the people or organizations you serve. created without interrupting daily business tasks.
