That’s the opinion of Jose Carlos Franco, managing director of LaLiga’s business intelligence and analytics department, who was presenting the competition’s international data strategy at the SportsPro OTT Summit in Madrid.With such a dramatic shift in the broadcast landscape, rights holders will have to become experts in this new technology, which is why LaLiga became the first major football competition to develop its own OTT service, LaLigaSportsTV.But doing so does not just represent a new platform to show live sport. As Franco explained, the world of OTT offers an enormous opportunity for data analysis, helping competitions to understand their fans better and build new followings across the world.“We ask two questions in our department. Who are our fans and how do they behave?” Franco said. “With our OTT platform, we are perfectly positioned to develop better knowledge of our users and how they consume sport, which can then be used to grow our audience.”Also Read: Javier Tebas quits as LaLiga president; to seek re-electionLaLigaSportsTV is a multi-channel platform that was created to provide coverage of less-mainstream Spanish sports, rather than broadcast LaLiga matches. In its first year, the service has streamed 1,145 live events and provided on-demand coverage from 35 different sports across smartphone, tablet, PC and Smart TV environments. In this time, it has accumulated 410,000 registered users.To Franco, each of these users provides a unique data footprint that can help LaLiga to improve its offering. “We have designed dashboards that show the location of every user, how many times they use the app per week, which sports they follow, how long they watch and which device they use,” he explained, adding that all information is strictly anonymized.“By sharing this insight with our marketing teams, we can then send notifications or recommendations for a specific match, TV service or event. This has been very effective.”Crucially, data from the OTT platform is combined with data from LaLiga’s many other digital platforms, including its website, mobile applications or games, in a single data lake. This allows for the team to analyses a much broader range of fan behaviours and use data-driven marketing to make a wider variety of relevant offers.“Analysing all of our data sources together gives us a 360-degree view of the fan,” Franco added. “The sports you choose on the OTT service, the games you play on your mobile, the team you follow in LaLiga, all form a picture of what kind of content you want to receive. This multiplies the amount of relevant and timely offers we can make, which creates much more room for growth.”Mascots driving LaLiga clubs’ brand growthOne of the new methods for making these offers is programmatic advertising. Using the fan data that has been accumulated, LaLiga produces new online articles, in partnership with a range of top media outlets, about topics that fans are showing an interest in.

Using the fan data that has been accumulated, LaLiga produces new online articles, in partnership with a range of top media outlets, about topics that fans are showing an interest in.By pushing these articles to specific groups of users, with relevant advertisements included (for example, downloading the LaLigaSportsTV app), LaLiga is significantly increase conversion rates and growing its registered user base organically.“Technology and data are fundamental to business growth,” Franco concluded. “But the depth of analysis is all-important. The more personalized you can be, the more receptive people will be to the offer you are making and the better your chances for long-term success.”Also Read: LaLiga forms choir with fans for melodious league soundtrack Previous articleISL Season 6 2019-20 LIVE : Hyderabad FC vs Odisha FC LIVE Streaming, squads, timingsNext articleAsghar Afghan reappointed Afghanistan captain Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

Franklin Evans was inaugurated on April 7 as the ninth president of Voorhees College, exactly 120 years to the day when educator Elizabeth Evelyn Wright opened the school for children of former slaves that grew into the College.“I will uphold the mission established by the founder,” Evans said at his inauguration, “as I work to make Voorhees a premier institution of excellence.” He has called Voorhees “the hidden jewel of South Carolina.”Evans faces a number of challenges: Voorhees is a small college of 600 students in a small town. Of Denmark, South Carolina’s 3,300 residents, 86 percent are African-American and 35 percent live below the poverty line. Voorhees cannot pay faculty and staff salaries to match those of larger institutions. Enrollment has been declining. The last decade has seen shrinkage in federal scholarship funds for low-income students.On the other hand, Voorhees may be able to benefit from the surge of interest in the country’s 107 historically black colleges and universities – those institutions of higher education established before 1964 to serve the African-American community. This primary focus is being broadened today to include other marginalized groups, including Hispanics.Evans is well prepared for the challenge: His previous job was as interim president of South Carolina State University in Orangeburg, S.C., where he also had been provost and chief academic officer, responsible for faculty recruitment, strategic planning, and re-accreditation. He has declared boosting the enrollment and encouraging greater alumni support his two top priorities.His inauguration took place before an audience of 500. Bishop Gladstone (Skip) Adams of the Episcopal Church in South Carolina preached, and Bishop Andrew Waldo of the Diocese of Upper South Carolina celebrated the Eucharist.Full article.

first_img Previous Article Next Article UK staff feel stuck in rut – and blame employersOn 5 Mar 2002 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Nearly one-third of UK employees feel they are going nowhere in their jobs –costing their employers up to £200bn in wasted potential. The finding, by Foundation Degrees, finds almost half of the 571 employeessurveyed think they are undervalued, and four in 10 believe they are wastingvaluable skills and experience. Nearly 40 per cent of staff are frustrated at the lack of opportunity to trynew things and half want their jobs to be more challenging. Margaret Hodge, minister for lifelong learning and higher education, saidthe research shows the importance of continuing education and development.”Too much talent and ability is going to waste because employers arefailing to develop the potential of the people they have and appreciate thereal value of on-the-job learning and experience,” she said. “Foundation degrees can help people move out of career ruts and intobetter and more interesting jobs by equipping them with the technical know-how,academic knowledge and transferable skills that employers demand.” The research shows most employees believe employers are to blame for failingto fill skills gaps. Nine in 10 respondents believe employers are responsible for ensuring thereare enough skilled employees in the workplace. A similar proportion feel employers should give existing staff theopportunity to take on different skills and more responsibility beforerecruiting new people.
