Training Information

Digitalization is increasing rapidly which generates very high data volumes. Also the permanent interaction between companies and systems with the Internet of data and services and the Internet of things accelerates the amount of available data.

The complexity of product and process designs raises permanently and as a final result we have enormous data pools. These data contain very much knowledge, worthfull for business purposes and opportunities and therefore we talk about the „Gold of 21st century“. In order to analyze big data it’s not any more possible to apply classic statistical tools..

Another toolset will be needed and this is Data Mining. Data Mining means „Digging in data“.

Duration2 days (from 9:00-17:00)

In former days people have been digging for gold but now data have the same intrinsic value. There are many different options to analyse big data, it’s a toolbox with high variety and not easy. Data Mining finds patterns in data and delivers knowledge about complex correlations or dependencies. It also distinguishes decision paths among a big number of variables. This all is unknown knowledge and it might help us for our overall task if we ask the right questions.

This Training will present to you several real examples for such learnings and their benefit. The course provides Data Mining in a comprehensible manner but gives also an introduction into the methods of analysis in a higher degree of detail. This is helpful because it will not be enough just to look to some results which are printed out by a software package.
