"Another great book from Gerhard Svolba that combines analytics, business applications and necessary data. The eight examples show highly relevant applications of data science that allow businesses to identify use cases to better understand their data and their processes.
The book can perfectly be used in the academics area to train and education data scientists. They receive real life case studies with a strong business background, and learn how to apply data science methods in a practical environment. The book together with the available data and full SAS programs can be run directly in SAS Studio to obtain and interpret the results shown in the book."
