This workshop is for people who would like to get an overview of the possibilities and application potentials of Data Science. This includes managers and head of departments, but also employees who are looking for an introduction to Data Science.


Companies today have to deal with an enormous amount of data on a daily basis. The big challenge for companies is not simply to collect this data, but to filter it and use it productively. The goal must always be to gain new insights and to optimize decisions and processes. In this one-day seminar you will learn the most important technical terms around data and learn how to develop added value and data-driven business models from data. An overview of use cases, necessary skills and technologies will be given. All aspects will be explained using practical examples and best practices and the procedure in a real data science use case will be clearly explained using an exemplary data science use case. After completing the training, the participants are familiar with the basics of data science. Our experienced lecturers have several years of professional experience in various industries. This ensures that our training courses are highly practice-oriented.

The workshop takes place in classroom style.


Participants do not require any previous knowledge. No laptop is required.

Liora Feicht - Speaker Data Festival

Liora Feicht

Liora Feicht has been with Alexander Thamm GmbH for 2 years. She loves to develop and optimize machine learning algorithms, especially because she attaches great importance to the fact that solutions are individually adapted to the needs and questions and at the same time are generally understandable. Her focus in the area of data analysis as well as modeling and optimization was laid early in her mathematics studies and since then she has been involved in a variety of projects.
