Research showed that decision-makers were unsure what IBM does at the Wimbledon Championship and that the most significant influence on perception of technology companies is experience of their people.

IBM #MakeTheTeam

We introduced the IBM Data Capture Team who play a vital role in providing the world-class data, statistics and insight made available by IBM to commentators, players, coaches and fans the world over.

The #MakeTheTeam game challenged players to capture a variety of data points from Wimbledon matches, just as the Data Capture Team do. Speed and accuracy were vital to the game which was played through a dual screen link up between PC and phone app. The campaign also involved extensive online media, a partnership with the Telegraph and social activity.

The game was used to stimulate interest in IBM and other IBM content – related to the tennis – and content ‘bridging’ into business needs continued the ‘journey’.
