The RFU and IBM have announced a strategic five year agreement
to analyse Opta data. IBM will use state of the art analytics to
provide fans with real-time insights into the game, including
information about individual performance by players.
In a first for rugby, IBM's Predictive Analytics software will
analyse historic and current rugby data collected and supplied by
Opta to provide valuable in-game stats. It will give viewers access
to insights that will heighten their understanding of what to watch
for in each game and explain what needs to be done to increase the
likelihood of a team win against specific opponents.
