This could perhaps be characterized in terms of the working regimen. technology utilization and employee activity are the two main difficulties that this dilemma revolves around. This study aims to address the aspect associated with data mining and E-CRM in the telecom industry. The methods that are used in the current study,  analysis studies of the data mining techniques are applied to E-CRM that has been identified. Moreover, PHP with the update of the DeLone and McLean methods has been used in the current study. The results show the significance in affecting the continuance used intention of data mining techniques.
