“Rugby is a team sport in which you can’t accomplish anything without the rest of your teammates.” - Serge Kampf, Founder of Capgemini
We are proud to be the Global Innovation Partner of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series. Capgemini has contributed to the world of rugby for over 25 years, supporting grass-roots teams, national clubs, and on the international stage as a sponsor of the 2007 Rugby World Cup. We love rugby and are thrilled at this opportunity to do more, for the game and for the fans.
Here’s why we love Rugby Sevens!
Introducing the Capgemini Momentum Tracker Award
For the 2019-20 season, we have worked together with World Rugby to develop the Momentum Tracker, a new and unique way to understand team performance. Aggregating a wide range of match data, the Momentum Tracker analyzes and measures a team’s performance and its ability to improve throughout the campaign.
After each tournament, the most improved team of the season will receive an award. Results will also be tracked cumulatively over the entire season, culminating in an overall award given at the end of the season, at the World Rugby awards ceremony, to both the captain and coach of the most improved team.
You can track the progress of the teams here.
“The Momentum Tracker is a great example of how Capgemini continues to innovate and explore ways to track and encourage improvements to the game and the fan experience.” – Brett Gosper, Chief Executive, World Rugby
Rugby7s Innovation Journey
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.
