IBM and MLSE Pair on Cognitive Slam Dunk for Toronto Raptors

As part of the grand opening of the Toronto Raptors' BioSteel Centre today, IBM (NYSE: IBM) and Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) are introducing a first of its kind solution called IBM Sports Insights Central. The solution is designed to transform the Raptors' talent evaluation processes by reimagining data through cognitive and analytics technology.

IBM Sports Insights Central was developed with input from the Toronto Raptors to provide a comprehensive platform to view, organize and surface relevant data important in evaluating individual and team performance. The platform extends beyond current roster players to include all NBA players and NBA prospects.

The solution was designed by IBM Interactive Experience, the world's largest digital agency, and is powered by IBM Watson cognitive business technology built on the IBM BlueMix cloud development platform.
