The finalists of the inaugural Australia & New Zealand Sports Technology Awards (ANZSTA) have been unveiled.
The awards are supported by the Telstra-Cisco alliance, nextmedia and Vumero Sports, and will be presented at an event on Thursday August 9, the evening before the Analytics in Sport conference.
The ANZSTA’s celebrate excellence and innovation of Australia and New Zealand based organisations in the application of data and technology across a range of vertical industries.
The judging panel told IoTHub that the quality of entries was extremely high, with strong competition among entrants across the categories.
The sports sector has not been immune to the impact of digital disruption, and the internet of things is playing a big role in driving change through the use of wearables and data analytics to improve individual and team performance.
At the backend, technology is also driving major changes in how people consume sports content and experience live sporting events.
It is these achievements that the inaugural ANZSTAs will celebrate.
