STASA Steinbeis Angewandte Systemanalyse GmbH


Our goal is to generate added value for our customers through in-depth data analysis, in short, transforming data into knowledge.

In all areas in companies and in society, the extraction of relevant key parameters from the steadily increasing flood of data is essential for sound, reliable forecasts of future development. This is the basis for reliable strategic decisions.

To do this, our team of data scientists and software experts develop customized solutions for our customers. These range from data visualization and statistical analysis to scenario-based forecasting of complex technical and social science systems. We rely on combining proven systems analysis tools based on process knowledge with state-of-the-art data-driven modeling and software development techniques, such as artificial intelligence and self-learning systems.

In doing so, we build on a wealth of experience gained from over 20 years of numerous projects, which today are listed under the keywords AI, Industry 4.0 and Big Data.

The service and project portfolio of STASA is very interdisciplinary. Among our clients are high-profile private-sector companies as well as ministries and institutional organisations. Confidentiality, flexibility and reliability are very important to us.
