IBM TryTracker

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.
