Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment and Infor Form a Fully-Integrated Partnership
Feb 8 17
Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment (BSE) and Infor have formed a fully-integrated partnership that will see data science applied to Brooklyn Nets team performance and fan marketing. The wide-ranging partnership covers four major areas: team performance, fan experience, team business operations, and jersey patch sponsorship. The partnership with BSE is New York-based Infor's first combining analytics and sports in North America. The most unique aspect of the partnership will see Infor develop a one-stop digital hub designed to help Nets General Manager Sean Marks and the team's Basketball Operations department generate stronger results on the court. This hub, developed by data scientists at Infor'sDynamic Science Labs and a team from its in-house digital agency, H&L Digital, will provide actionable insights by analyzing the vast array of data captured by the Nets on-court performance as well as the team's travel information, training activity, and other performance data. The centralized digital platform will aim to enhance data visualization and to further unify all of Basketball Operations, including players, coaches, training and medical staff, and analytics team. As part of the partnership, Infor will have its logo featured on the front left of the Nets game jerseys starting during the 2017-18 season and a branding presence throughout Barclays Center and HSS Training Center, the team's practice facility in Brooklyn. HSS Training Center will serve as an incubator for new ideas in which Infor's technology will help improve communication and collaboration across Barclays Center and the Nets' business operations, including talent sourcing and acquisition, customer service, and arena experience.
