Data Science

The plethora of data in this day and age holds new challenges, and we help our clients in facing them. By identifying patterns and correlations in the data, we can derive statements that expand the knowledge about the 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. Classical procedures as well as techniques from the field of machine learning reliably predict future developments. Environmental information and correlations with economic, market and weather data are linked intelligently with historical developments in order to recognise changes in trend early.


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


"Your data knows the future: Visit our evening lecture during the Würzburg Web Week on April 3, 2019. In three short presentations we will guide you through the different stages of a Predictive Analytics project. Subsequently, we will jointly discuss and exchange ideas about the topic in an informal atmosphere. Register here for free: Ihre Daten kennen die Zukunft. See you on April 3, 2019!" [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 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 of 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.
