The Rugby Football Union (RFU) knows the digital channel is a powerful tool to connect with fans. To help deliver engaging, personalised content that inspires fans to play a more active role in the sport, the RFU worked with IBM to build a single view of each customer based on interactions with its website, online store and grassroots events.
TryTracker analyses data from 300 international rugby matches to determine the statistical measures that are truly reflective of good team performance. Based on this analysis, IBM and RFU designed and configured three analytics dashboards using IBM SPSS software.
During live matches, “momentum”, “keys to the match” and “player influence” dashboards are displayed on RFU.com – each delivering a different kind of real-time statistical insight to fans.
