WITH data being seen as the ‘new oil’ in football, teams around the world are seeking to gain a competitive edge by using it to generate as many insights as possible.
The ability to translate and communicate data points to practitioners concisely and effectively enables informed decision-making.
Power BI is a powerful tool that allows users to connect multiple data sources to generate interactive insights. The low-code nature of the software makes it an ideal starting point for anyone looking to engage with football data.
Our Power BI Masterclass on Tuesday April 19th will be delivered by Southampton FC Performance Data Analyst Harriet Eastham (pictured below), who is a Microsoft Certified Data Analyst Associate.
This session will be of particular interest to current/ budding sport scientists and performance analysts, but more widely to anyone looking to start their journey with data visualisation or further their understanding.
