Nowadays, the process of data mining is one of the most important topics in scientific and business problems. There is a huge amount of data that can help to solve many of these problems. However, data is geographically distributed in various locations and belongs to several organizations. Furthermore, it is stored in different kind of systems
and it is represented in many formats. Different techniques have been studied to make easier the data mining process in a distributed environment.

However, data mining applications demand new alternatives in the field of discovery, data placement, scheduling, resource management, and transactional systems, among others. All these needs are not met by traditional and homogeneous distributed systems. Grid computing has appeared as a new technology, whose main challenge is the complete integration of heterogeneous computing systems and data resources with
the aim of providing a global computing space. We consider that grid
provides a new framework in which data mining applications can be successfully deployed.

One of the major goals of grid technology is to provide efficient access to data. Grids provide access to distributed computing and data resources,
allowing data-intensive applications to improve significantly data access, management and analysis.
Grid systems responsible for tackling and managing large amounts of data in geographically distributed environments are usually named data grids. Generic data management systems, and particularly data mining grids, involve a great number of challenges.

On the other hand, the concept of knowledge grid is emerging as a new stage in the development of current research in the semantic and knowledge systems. Knowledge grids use knowledge-based methodologies, including knowledge engineering tools,discovery and analysis techniques such as
data mining and machine learning, intelligent software agents, mathematical modelling, simulation or planning. The knowledge grid will provide intelligent guidance for decision-makers, through an
agreed knowledge representation and the provision of homogeneous access over heterogeneous sources of information, ontologies and other kind of metainformation.

. Data Mining grids
