US Open tech, behind the scenes

US Open tech, behind the scenes

Summary: I got a tour of IBM's Operations Center at the US Open this week, and I took a few pictures. Check out the infrastructure underlying delivery of all scores, stats and analytics at America's Grand Slam tennis event.

  • Here's the main menu for the US Open in-house information system.


  • Here's the internal application screen that presents detailed data on each player.  (This particular match up between Berdych and Murray is not from this year's Open)

  • The On Court Stats Summary screen, from Thursday's five-setter between Tepsarevic and Ferrer.

    First of all, nice to see the comment system no longer throws away non-ASCII characters. However, I think they should bring back downvotes. Flagging is supposed to be (I thought) for complaining about spam, abuse, that kind of thing, yet some people are clearly using it on postings they simply don't like. If we have upvotes, why not downvotes? Keep the flagging as well, but add a pop-up confirmation that asks you to type in a reason; this should reduce the incidence of spurious flagging. I'm sure the moderators would appreciate that!
