Welcome to the first Industrial Data Science (IDS 2017) conference in the name of the whole organization team. After a short description of the state, challenges, barriers, use cases, and opportunities of Industrial Data Science and of the CRoss- Industry Standard Process for Data Mining (CRISP-DM), which is used as a redline through this event, we provide a short overview over the data science use cases presented at IDS 2017, whose presentation order reflects the steps in CRISP-DM. IDS 2017 focuses on industrial data science applications and best practices, i.e. hands-on experience how to best use data to solve problems in industry and to leverage opportunities.
