It's all about the data
The analysis and insight we derive from data is at the heart of IBM's constant enhancement the fan experience, via USOpen.org features, mobile apps, and support of television broadcasters and other media. The Business Analytics and Optimization (BAO) solutions we bring to bear at the US Open apply to businesses and industries worldwide. Just as fans are keen to understand the Keys to the Match, business leaders are focused on understanding and managing key metrics that drive and improve their businesses. IBM has found that top performers in the business world are more than five times as likely to use an analytic approach instead of intuition.
Just as BAO solutions at the US Open connect fans with the tournament, BAO solutions connect our clients with trusted, relevant information and give them the ability to confidently predict, plan and act to optimize business outcomes.
IBM and the Grand Slams
The solutions behind the US Open don't end when the tournament ends. IBM works with the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments throughout the year to provide a better experience for fans and to provide a vital resource for media, commentators and even players. This constant cycle of events sets up a perpetual stream of innovation that sees the technology become smarter and greener each year.
One of the best examples is the new state-of-the-art Leadership Data Center, which is used to support all four Grand Slams. This ultra-green solution enables IBM to achieve the highest level of security, availability and automation while minimizing environmental impact.
