Problem statement: The modern world is based on using physical, biological and social systems more effectively using advanced computerized techniques. A great amount of data being generated by such systems; it leads to a paradigm shift from classical modeling and analyses based on basic principles to developing models and the corresponding analyses directly from data. The ability to extract useful hidden knowledge in these data and to act on that knowledge is becoming increasingly important in today's competitive world. Approach: The entire process of applying a computer-based methodology, including new techniques, for discovering knowledge from data is called data mining. There are two primary goals in the data mining which are prediction and classification. The larger data involved in the data mining requires clustering and outlier analysis for reducing as well as collecting only useful data set. Results: This study is focusing the review of implementation techniques, recent research on clustering and outlier analysis. Conclusion: The study aims for providing the review of clustering and outlier analysis technique and the discussion on the study will guide the researcher for improving their research direction.
