Data Science has recently gained significant attention both by academia and industry. Especially in the areas of big data and machine learning the software and tools landscape is changing rapidly. This makes it very difficult for companies to keep up to date and choose the right time to embark on new technologies. Unlike universities that typically experiment with the latest features, companies are often more conservative due to legacy software.

The goal of this Expert Group is to provide a technology radar for software and tools and to discuss new trends as well as best practices. Similar to Gartner’s Magic Quadrant, the idea is to become the major reference to Data and Service Science related technology insights.
