Guido Budziak of
Data ('Big Data') is the new oil of our modern society. This is the result of the widespread availability and use of technology. Every interaction via a computer, tablet or smart phone generates data that companies analyse to improve the user experience and customer satisfaction. What makes data so valuable and how do you make use of data for marketing and communications purposes, and to improve football performance? I will show how data analytics and technology contribute to better football experiences and demonstrate an app - CoachAssist - that I am developing for amateur football coaches.
