By combining the power of hybrid cloud and enterprise-grade AI, IBM Consulting worked with Wimbledon to co-create an open and flexible platform of innovation that transforms massive amounts of tennis data into insights, automates key business processes and secures Wimbledon's digital operations.
The digital experience of The Championships is built upon a huge volume of structured and unstructured data – from a variety of sources – all of which must be captured, secured, filtered and analysed in real time.
Wimbledon data is instantly routed to multiple clouds in multiple locations, where it feeds a variety of applications that are containerised and built on Red Hat OpenShift. This hybrid cloud architecture enables Wimbledon to write applications once and run them anywhere.
IBM Consulting works with the Wimbledon digital team year-round, using the IBM Garage and IBM Design Thinking methods to map user journeys and develop innovative and engaging features for the Wimbledon app. During the tournament, the teams sit side-by-side, monitoring the entire digital operation from start to finish.
Wimbledon uses several different AI capabilities to transform raw data into meaningful insights for the digital experience. The process is fully automated, helping the Wimbledon Digital team quickly produce content; from pre-match insights to post-match highlights reels. IBM Match Insights analyse scores, statistics and expert opinion, producing predictions of each player’s Likelihood to Win, and their IBM Power Index - a measurement of players’ form and momentum.
