“Every international team is trying to be the best they possibly can, so it’s inevitable that we’ll look to technology, that we’ll look to analysis to try and make improvements – marginal gains wherever we can, and sometimes, massive gains.”
– Damian Smith, ECB
Loved (at least by some!) and played the world over, cricket has reinvented itself to appeal to new audiences. Off the pitch, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is reinventing the way its cricket clubs operate – transitioning them from legacy, paper-based processes to the digital workplace.
Recorded live at Lord’s, Damian Smith, Head of IT at the ECB, talks to Paul Miller about how technology is not only enabling cricket clubs to run more effectively, but is helping them to fulfil strategic objectives.
From WiFi to biometric analysis, hear how the ECB is driving the sport forward, enriching the experience for match-goers and inspiring the next generation of cricket lovers.
