Download brochure


Digital transformation has caused changes in all aspects of human life. Nearly a third of European industrial output is attributed to the uptake of digital technologies (COM, 2016). An example to show the massive impact: from 2008 to 2016, the top five e-commerce retailers grew an average of 32% per year, while the entire EU retail sector grew only an average of 1% per year (EC, 2017).

Businesses nowadays not only have access to the sociodemographic data of their customers such as age and gender, but also every contact with the customer, every payment made or product bought is being stored. In these large volumes of data very valuable knowledge is hidden which can be used to improve profitability or increase revenues.

Data science is all about extracting this valuable knowledge from the data.
