Re: world cup 2014 moving to the next level with big data.
In this year's World Cup, teams will benefit, not only from training, but from technology that analyzes each of those events in combination with data from sensors, video, and more to build an unbeatable strategy. Soccer clubs face a data explosion, which is causing them to grapple with massive amounts of information from sensors, video feeds, social media, and other sources. Data analysis tools can also help paint a picture around the numbers and uncover hidden trends in data that coaches and managers can actually use. To make sense of all this information, clubs are using new big-data analytics technologies to improve their team personnel and on-field performance.
