Data Feeds – A crucial part of Fantasy Sports Application.
Did you know that 56.8 million people are now playing fantasy sports online in the U.S. and Canada alone? Oh yeah, and daily games alone, growing 41% annually, will reach $14.4 billion in 2020. No wonder thus that more and more startups are joining this gold-rush every year. The world of fantasy sports enterprises is as competitive as the online and real games. So how can you be different yet competitive? What are the most decisive differentiators that would keep you ahead of this gold race? Do read on.
First things first. In order to identify these differentiators, you may need to dive deeper into how a Fantasy Sports Software works. Now that may not be everyone’s cup of tea. However, being into fantasy sports web and app development bestows us with enough experience in the field. We have been closely working with fantasy sports startups globally as their design, development and consulting partners. And we have identified a few clear differentiators. Mainly they are: lineups dynamics, User Experiences, mobile presence, data feeds, research content (player injury, news, playing probability, fantasy points etc.). That’s quite a list right? So we dug deeper and zeroed in our research to two of the most important contributors to success. These are User Experience and Data Feeds.
Now let’s understand that both these factors are interdependent. So a good UX with incomplete or delayed data feed is a failure and similarly an amazing data feed without a proper representation is useless.
When it comes to data feeds, there’s a good number of companies offering sports data feeds. Ever heard of STATS Inc or Sports Direct? However, it is important to identify those whose data feeds are optimized to support fantasy sports applications. Also, various sports data providers have different attributes and prizing associated with their feeds. For instance, fantasy games are powered by highly sophisticated algorithms. These combinations are critical for assessing the crucial aspects of, say a basketball player’s performance that contributes to an overall result. This kind of data feeds further help in enhancing the overall user experience. At Vinfotech, we share a great working relationship with the best names in the sports data feeds industry. These include STATS Inc, OPTA, Sportradar, Fantasydata llc, to name a few. Guess what? We also have formal partnerships with fantasy data llc and have worked on more than 10 fantasy sports projects with them till now. At Vinfotech we believe in offering best solution for our clients and therefore we can suggest them the best data feeds that go with their requirements and budget.
Based on this vision, we are able to offer a comprehensive fantasy sports solution that beautifully blends data feeds with user experience. If you find this idea intriguing enough, we would love to hear from you. Do give us a shout.
