With extra time being spent on the visualization of this data, the possibility of valuable athlete insights being overlooked has become increasingly more probable due to the extra time it takes to shape the presentation.
Finally, there has been a breakthrough in this area of the sports tech industry.
Sports Performance Platform revolutionizes data analysis and visualization in the sports industry. All of the data collected can be easily visualized with what we know in the business world as a BI Dashboard. However in sports, we call it a Sports Intelligence Dashboard, this software provides next level information and insights about players and the team as a whole.
Virtually anything you can track and record can be visualized with the use of the Sports Performance Platform. The Seattle Reign, for example, is tracking sleep quality, stress levels, soreness (by muscle group), strength, speed, agility, goals, assists, injuries and more.
Much of this data is portrayed on a unique web graphic which overlays an athlete’s personal data with the average of the team data so that it’s easy to see how a particular player stands out.
The data from practices and games is easily navigated and sorted by week, which provides a level of visual insights never before available in the sports world.
Perhaps most importantly, Sports Performance Platform allows for the visualization of the “overall load” an athlete experiences during games and in practice. This data, when combined with sleep quality, stress, soreness levels and other data sets can help predict when injuries are likely to occur, giving players and coaches the opportunity to scale back a player’s training, ensuring the players stay healthy.
Thanks to this new technology, sports analysts are able to save valuable time visualizing data and can spend more energy on collecting new data sets, which is providing new levels of insights for the team and athletes.
A Sports Intelligence Dashboard makes sharing and understanding data much more simple. The sharp clarity at which it achieves this goal gives teams a significant edge over their opponents come game time.
Just like a BI Dashboard gives companies an edge in the business world.

In the first instance, mavericks in the industry started referring to “solutions” to make a clear distinction between the array of technology and processes that fixed real problems and siloed products that on their own accomplished very little. The word “solution” forced technologists and business thinkers to blend their efforts and pushed technology companies to deeply incorporate real customer feedback (“borne of the battle-field”) into their product cycles. Talk of product gave way to analysis of business scenarios and the incorporation of technology into these scenarios.
First, that a technology product’s “features” are less important to the buyer than the technology’s ability to quickly be enacted in order end operational difficulties. Most buyers of technology are not “power-users” and, as such, they are more interested in the “payload” of a technology than they are in its surface functions.
The second corollary is that the organization seeks technology when it has well-defined and articulated operational problems, not just because it’s “cool” to have “the newest” thing. Real solutions for real problems is the key. Bells, whistles, and bobbles were “nice to have” but not necessary or business-critical.
The technology industry ought to pay heed to the transmogrification of language that takes innovative ideas and waters them down with constant and decontextualized repetition.
We are in now in an era in which the fresh ideas of the last decade have also lost part of their luster through repetition. Mobility, Cloud Computing, Social Commerce, Digital Transformation, and Big Data are all very live, very organic ideas that evolve. But for most pundits, the mere incantation of these words appears sufficient.
At Akvelon, we take a very different approach. We don’t believe in trivially repeating industry cant or inventing solutions for phantom problems. We believe in “surrounding” the customer, and understanding context deeply. Our solutions follow real problems. They always have and they always will.
We are not alone in this but still consider ourselves rare. This is a clarion call to the industry to stop glorifying technology for technology’s sake, but only if it is put in the service of fixing real problems so that organizations can prosper and through them, people.
