15 Sep How Big Data Is Helping Professional Sports
Big data has made its way across many different areas of industry, including the professional sports industry where the use of analytics is making a major change in how athletes and sports teams are preparing for games. The use of analytical data is not solely limited to being used as a development tool for individuals and team in terms of performance but is also in popular use by clubs and leagues as they assess the interaction between fans and their stars.
One of the most exciting aspects of the development of big data is the range of new jobs and employment opportunities developed at sports teams. In the past, positions such as physical therapy jobs were the best option for an individual seeking to join their heroes at a sports club, but these rolls have now been joined by statistical roles playing an important role in the development of sports for the future.
