NEWS: Opta to power new IBM and RFU analytics initiative

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.

For more information, please click here to head to the main Opta site.
