Be ahead of the game

Bringing expertise and passion for innovation and technology to World Rugby

“Rugby is a team sport in which you can’t accomplish anything without the rest of your teammates.” - Serge Kampf, Founder of Capgemini

We believe technology enables people to be ahead of the game, whether in sports or in business. Our teams at Capgemini are always looking at ways to innovate and create digital solutions for our clients that will enable them to be ahead of the game. We do this by bringing together our extensive experience in various digital technologies and by following our guiding principle of putting clients first.

One example of this is the Match Predictor game, an application that enables fans to predict winners and margin of victory for every game as part of a simple league, competing against the Capgemini Bot.
