Data and analytics have become essential tools for gaining a competitive edge and enhancing the fan experience in the sports industry. The Texas Rangers are leading the way in this field, utilizing terabytes of in-game video data to optimize player performance and scouting strategies.

Unfortunately, their legacy data architecture was standing in the way of delivering the insights and analytics the team needed as it was unable to support the explosion of player data that became available to the team for analysis. Their data sources were very siloed and disparate, and the time it took for their data engineering team to build and deploy each of the data pipelines needed to feed their reporting dashboards was taking too long due to limited experience with Spark. Sound familiar?

Join this webinar on April 6, 9 a.m. PST | 12 p.m. EST to learn why the baseball operations team at the Texas Rangers migrated their ETL pipelines to Prophecy on top of the Databricks Lakehouse. Since modernizing their ETL with a low-code solution for developing, deploying, and managing data pipelines at scale, the club has seen staggering results including:

  • Data democratization - The entire data team is able to easily build data pipelines without the need for Spark expertise.
  • Faster pipeline development - The time saved deploying new data pipelines has gone from as much as two months, to two weeks. This has allowed their analysts to glean new statistics and metrics for evaluating players faster than ever before. 
  • Future-proof - Increased velocity of new data products that are helping to change the game of sports analytics.
