Webinar Recording

Baseball and BI

Date: Thursday, August 24, 2017
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Baseball has always collected in-game data. However, until recently, fans didn’t have easy access to the various statistics that coaches used for key decisions important for the development of the players and success on the baseball field. It’s not unlike how traditional business intelligence is delivered. Data and reports are set aside for a few experts who determine what is important for you. Wouldn’t it be great if business reporting could be as timely, seamless, efficient and cost-effective as watching a baseball game on TV or a mobile device?
During this webinar, you will:
Learn how to get business reporting as timely, seamless, efficient and cost-effective as watching a baseball game on TV or a mobile device.
Learn how technology is changing the game of baseball from a member of the 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs, and how he gets his Baseball BI information in a timely, seamless, efficient and cost-effective manner.
