The NBA is one of the hottest leagues in pro sports, flush with marquee players and a lucrative new TV contract. It's also one of the world's most tech-savvy leagues. The new, state-of-the-art stats capability on NBA.com, for instance, lets fans sort and search statistics as they see fit, from games going all the way back to the league's founding in 1946. And in a bold move to shorten the time it takes to do in-game video checks of referee calls, the league spent $15 million to overhaul its replay center in Secaucus, N.J., where a team of people viewing 300 gigs of video piped from all 29 NBA arenas can beam any of nine court angles directly to refs as needed. In this keynote Q&A, NBA CIO Michael Gliedman will discuss how he and his team of 100 IT professionals are helping teams analyze player performance, improve their operating efficiency, and enhance the fan experience through the creative use of data analytics, video, mobile apps, social networking, and other cutting-edge technologies.
