News : Infosys Announces Partnership with Apia International Sydney 2016
Sydney, January 15 2016: Infosys (NYSE: INFY), a provider in consulting, technology, outsourcing and services has announced an extension of its support for tennis beyond the global technology services partnership with the ATP World Tour - the governing body of men’s professional tennis circuits – announced in September 2015. Infosys announced a partnership with Apia International Sydney 2016, an ATP 250 tournament and also one of the world’s oldest tennis tournaments, to be held from January 10-16, 2016.
Infosys will provide statistics and insights for fans and players by leveraging the Infosys Information Platform (IIP), its open-source data analytics and visualization platform. The platform will analyse historical player data to identify trends and insights about matches. These insights will engage both casual and ardent fans, provide information to commentators and media, and give players access to in-depth data about their game and those of their competitors.
The initiatives within the larger partnership that Infosys has with the ATP World Tour include:
- Creation of an exclusive Infosys ATP Scores & Stats Center to revolutionize engagement with tennis fans by providing unprecedented insights and predictions about every tournament, every match and every point.
- Reimagining the ATP Player Zone, a player engagement platform and mobile app, to elevate the experience for players and enable them to register for tournaments, review travel information, connect with other players, and stay up-to-date on all ATP World Tour news
- Managing the infrastructure, applications, and data of ATP World Tour by leveraging the elasticity and computational power of the cloud-based model
