For more than 25 years, IBM has been the Official Information Technology Provider to the US Open. Every year, for two very special weeks, we’re proud to bring the US Open to life for fans, media, coaches and players.
IBM designs, develops and delivers the digital experience of the tournament for more than 15 million fans around the world through the Official US Open digital platforms, including USOpen.org and the US Open app. But we also surround that experience with data and insight, adding context to the action on the court through analyses of matches in progress and using Watson to serve up the most exciting video highlights of the day.
And this year Watson will be revolutionizing the onsite experience at the US Open as well. More than 750,000 fans will have the opportunity to engage with Watson through the US Open Guest Information feature on the app, asking questions about scores, schedules, directions and dining options at the US Open.
IBM’s cloud, cognitive computing, and Watson for Cyber Security work in concert to exponentially enhance the fan experience of the US Open. That’s tennis to the power of IBM.
