On February 9th, 13 teams of the lecture “Business Intelligence Systems” (BIS) presented the results of their capstone project in the KD2Lab at KIT. The capstone project was done in cooperation with KPMG AG as part of the joint KIT-KPMG Business Intelligence & Analytics Lab.
In the capstone project students worked with a real dataset from a KPMG data & analytics consulting project, implemented a BIS prototype and derived business recommendations based on the data analysis. Students were also introduced to SAP HANA and Microsoft PowerBI to build the BIS prototype using commercial packaged software. The results of the students were well-received, interesting and constructive discussions were triggered during the presentations.
