Sports and analytics go hand in hand. People are paid millions of dollars for the strategy that comes with data. The World Cup is no different.

Cambridge Semantics has released Anzo Smart Data Integration (ASDI) software to help enterprises rapidly understand and integrate information assets. This new software is designed to reduce integration timeframes and costs by a factor of 10.
In an effort to reduce storage costs, the AIS Group is piloting a call recording application to ensure compliance with insurance regulations.
