Accenture is the Official Technology Partner to the RBS 6 Nations Rugby Championship, a partnership that began in 2012 and runs through to 2017.
Watch our video to find out how we provided a digital solution for the RBS 6 Nations Championship last year, helping them to respond to the changing needs of the RBS 6 Nations fan-base.
Accenture employs an integrated digital approach that combines analytics, mobility and social media. This enables fans to gain deeper insight into match play and player performance, whilst allowing them to further explore the stats that really matter to them.
We also created the official Championship mobile app to bring all the action from the Championship into fans' pockets. Over the past three years users from over 150 countries have downloaded and updated the app more than 2.6 million times. The app includes pre-match news, line-ups and previews, providing play-by-play commentary during the game and post-match analysis, including match-play data, reports and video highlights whilst allowing fans to interact over social media.
To deliver unique insights into game-changing moments throughout the tournament, Accenture's analytics experts processed more than 1.9 million rows of data during every match. The analysis and up-to-the minute statistics were available to mobile device users throughout the tournament, providing fans with new information, a new perspective and a new way of seeing things.
