Big data analytics and the business of sports

Like many other businesses, the sports and entertainment industry is starting to test and operationalize big data analytics. At CeBIT 2014 SAP introduces a brand-new application for analyzing football matches. Player data, performance and tactics can be monitored and analyzed in real-time powered by SAP HANA.
It evaluates huge amounts of data in milliseconds. The data come from sensors carried by the players and in the ball that collect millions of positional data points and feed them into the platform for real-time calculation of player parameters such as acceleration, speed, and ball contacts. The results make it possible to visualize and analyze performance information so that coaches, trainers, and players can see what is happening, where they need to improve, how they can better defend or attack the opposing team, and how they might alter the training to reduce the risk of player injury. These insights translate into a competitive advantage – something every athlete and team is trying to create and exploit.
