Behind the scenes of those intense workouts by the Seattle Sounders FC players, technology is tracking team members to make sure they’re playing at their best. A variety of devices worn by the players gather information on each athlete’s energy output, endurance, sleep patterns, nutrition and fatigue levels.
All that tracking generates more than 350 columns of data, which led the team to create its own SQL Server database to house all those datasets.
“SQL Server is the place where all the data from different devices meshes together. It provides us a holistic view of the data and enables us to draw powerful insights from it,” says Ravi Ramineni, a performance analyst with the Sounders who built the SQL Server database.
