The lecture addresses students that are interested in the topic of data science applied within large cooperations. Enterprise data science is linking the business perspective to realistic mathematical models and the constraints of an enterprise IT environment. All three topics address the lecture with a focus on applied machine learning and predictive models in Python.

In this lecture, we focus on predictive modeling (machine learning) via Python and how to solve the related business problem.

Programming skills are mandatory for a data scientist; thus, programming exercises have to be done by the students. Predictive models forecast the future given historical data sets. For this machine learning might become appropriate. We will use the scikit-learn Python library and TensorFlow to demonstrate pitfalls and best practices to solve a problem. Also, the link to advanced business intelligence (BI) tools and in-memory databases is presented.

Note that full coverage of these topics is not possible, and only a selective view is presented. Thus, only basic concepts are sketched by using demos, SQL, Python, and business process modeling and notation (BPMN) representation.
