Serving up 25 years of exceptional fan experiences

What if I could do that?

The technology IBM uses to deliver a world class service at a world class event are not niche sporting solutions. We use our cloud, analytics, mobile and social business solutions to make the fan experience better, whenever and wherever they want to experience it. If we can do this for a private members’ tennis club in South West London imagine what the possibilities are for your business.

The same software, infrastructure and solutions are used by clients in the UK, Ireland and around the world. Read the case studies below of where the same solutions have helped other clients: from analytics improving traffic flows in cities to hospitals using social business to help improve paediatric care.

Who is benefiting from these solutions already?  



At Wimbledon we use IBM's Big Data capabilities to help player performance and provide realtime insights to fans about the match. The same analytics capabilities are helping our clients uncover information nuggets from their historic data and change the way they work.
