Over the past 5 or so years, IBM has shaped the entire Digital experience for the US Masters based on the simple design brief of “Can it be Beautiful.” And every year, IBM together with the US Masters team, push boundaries of design, technology and delivery to execute this brief and make it a reality for Golf audiences and fans all over the world.

This partnership not only demonstrates best practice as it relates to sports and the fan experience but best practice for all industries as it relates to creating personalised and in-the-moment customer experiences at scale to win the battle of the consumers time and dollars. Video, is of course, at the heart of this experience.
