What if the playing field were always level?
On a smarter planet, we are witnessing the explosion of information. Instant access to the information companies need is now a mandatory part of doing business. This extends into the world of sports, where diehard fans are always looking for the latest scores and news.
Impire AG, a midsize business that provides statistics for broadcast during sporting events, saw an opportunity to improve the way fans experience the game. Their goal was to create 3-D visualizations of advanced stats during soccer matches in real time. To achieve this, they needed a simple, flexible and more powerful infrastructure. With the help of IBM and our Business Partners, Impire AG created a new platform that could easily and efficiently tap into hundreds of sources of game data to create dynamic graphics on the fly. Their new platform helped Impire AG increase revenue yearly as they expanded into new markets and multiple sports-a big win against the competition.
