Business Data Analytics

The research group "Business Data Analytics" focuses on the opportunities and challenges of a world that is increasingly influenced by digital data. Our goal is always to extract substantial added value from data and information and bring it to use. This requires a holistic view of the use cases, technically and economically. We research both analytics/AI methods and processes, their practical application and integration into the corporate or social context. Our strengths on the technical side include Analytics, Machine Learning, and Method Hybridization. On the economic side we have competencies in Business Case Identification, Business Model Development, and Incentive Engineering. We successfully collaborate with many partners across industries with companies and in publicly funded projects.
