Beim diesjährigen SAS Forum Deutschland in Bonn boten Sascha Schubert und ich einige Hands-on-Sessions zu Data Science und Analytics an. Nichts Neues, denken Sie wahrscheinlich. Aber mir sind einige Veränderungen zu vorherigen Events aufgefallen, die meiner Ansicht nach auf einen größeren Umbruch in der analytischen Landschaft verweisen. Hier also meine
