Play Ball: The Importance of Data Protection in Sports – MI&S Game Time Tech

Technology is in use in all facets of sports from both the business side and the operations side related to the sport itself. This is especially true as sporting organizations do more to make the user experience even better, which typically entails an increase in SaaS application use. For example, baseball tickets themselves are digital in nature and available through the app, making it easier to access and get into ballparks. And that’s just one example. Each game generates an enormous amount of data from players, officials, concessions, etc. At the end of the day, all of this data is critical and critical at given points in time. HYCU is proud to work with organizations like the Boston Red Sox to ensure the data across the business and baseball operations is efficiently backed up and able to recover in the event of simple human error or deletion to other events. HYCU works with several sporting organizations globally, including the MLB.
