| | July 20176CIOReviewWhile working for our annual edition on sports technology, it has been pretty exciting to see how technology is enforcing a paradigm shift in the sports landscape. For athletes, as they continue to push the limits of performance, technology doping is at disposal to further channelize their efforts, on and off the field. It enables coaches to track vitals, measure progress, or even judge the state of injury, which will enable them to make informed decisions. Employing neuro-simulation to enhance the athlete's training; and wearable like microchips embedded on clothing are widely being used today for professional and even college sports teams. These equipments are generating data at an unprecedented rate, and much like in the enterprise realm; analytics is enabling strategic planning just as it is capable of streaming insightful and exciting statistics to fans.While technology has spurred the conception of athlete monitoring/tracking, team performance and recruitment analysis on one side, real time AR broadcasts based on data streams and fantasy sports are elevating fan engagement and experience on the other side. Smarter streaming and training aided by VR, connected stadiums, and wearable tech has proliferated into normal lives. Sport is no more an event rendered exclusive to the place of happening. Although live streaming has its own demand among spectators, the industry has also begun to capitalize at large on statistics for fan engagement. With the fan, the player, the stadium and the data being connected by the fabric of technology, the entire concept of sports is reaching a whole new dimension. And with the emergence of a number of competitive vendors, the sports technology realm is subject to a level of competency just as much as the sports itself. In this scenario, coming up with this edition has been a dive into exploring a number of innovative solution providers, changing trends, needs of the hour and a glimpse into how the future of sports tech would turn out to be. We hope the valuable insights from industry thought-leaders and the innovative solutions from leading companies will help you in making informed decisions for your institution.Copyright © 2017 ValleyMedia, Inc.
