The results of data mining endeavors are majorly driven by data quality. Throughout these deployments, serious show-stopper problems are still unresolved, such as: data collection ambiguities, data imbalance, hidden biases in data, the lack of domain information, and data incompleteness. This paper is based on the premise that context can aid in mitigating these issues. In a traditional data science lifecycle, context is not considered. Context-driven Data Science Lifecycle (C-DSL); the main

Results from both case studies are evaluated using common data mining metrics such as: coefficient of determination (R2 value) and confusion matrices. The work presented in this paper aims to re-define the lifecycle and introduce tangible improvements to its outcomes.
