The business industry is generating a lot of data on daily business deals and financial transactions. These businesses are generating intensive-data like they need customer satisfaction on top priority, fulfilling their needs, etc. In every step, Data is being produced. This Data has a great value that is hidden from regular users. Data analytics is used to unhide those values. In our project, we are using a business-related dataset that contains strings and their class (0 or 1). 0 or 1 denotes the positive or negative string labels. To analyze this data, we are using a decision tree classification algorithm (J48 exceptionally) to perform text mining (classification) on our target dataset. Text mining comes under supervised learning (type). In-text mining, generally, we use two datasets. One is used to train the model, and the second dataset is used to predict the missing class labels in the second dataset based on this training model generated using the first dataset.
