Data Science

The plethora of data in this day and age poses new challenges, and we help our clients to face them. By identifying patterns and correlations in the data, we can derive statements that expand our clients’ knowledge about their business and make it permanently usable. While doing so, we make use of a wide variety of well-established statistical methods of analysis.


With the help of innovative forecasting methods, we develop precise forecasts. Traditional procedures as well as techniques from the field of machine learning reliably predict future developments. We link environmental information and correlations with economic, market, and weather data with historical developments intelligently in order to recognize changes in trends early.


Prototypes are made into constant solutions. We take on the implementation and automation of solutions and support their integration into the company-wide business and IT concept through a user-oriented interface design. Our dashboards und reports allow for interactive usage and individualization of the results.


"As part of the Wuerzburg Web Week 2019 prognostica was represented both as a sponsor and with its own event. On April 3, our event took place in the Fotostudio Mondelli and was, to our delight, fully booked to the last seat. Our speakers Thomas, Lena and Alexander gave several insights into predictive analytics topics and provided space for questions and interesting discussions. So it is not surprising that the event did not end as planned at 8 o'clock, but shifted into small discussion rounds in the evening. We would like to thank all participants and hope to welcome them at future events!" [more]

"On November 7 and 8, 2018, we will be participating as an exhibitor and speaker at the BARC Conference on Advanced and Predictive Analytics, which is taking place as part of the large data analysis event Big Data World. Meet us in person at stand 991 at Messe Frankfurt, and listen to our talk on ‘Forecasts with exogenous influencing factors in the industrial environment’ on November 8 at 10:55 a.m." [more]

"At the Data Festival 2018, I had the chance to present developments in predictive analytics in the supply chain. Many thanks to Mr. Priese from BASF SE, the organizers, and all the participants. The Data Festival was a great event. I am particularly pleased that we were able to show what benefits are possible through modern methodology."

From the program to the Data Festival: Using the data from the global chemical company BASF, empirical results show that this approach clearly outperforms forecasts provided by classical Advanced Planning Systems (APS) in accuracy and plausibility while reducing the planning effort significantly.
