Coincidentally, the new Amway Center was just opening its doors when the Magic made the plunge into advanced analytics.

It was a match made in sports business heaven.

In this episode of Inside Sports Business Intelligence, we catch up with the Orlando Magic’s Senior VP of Strategy & Innovation, Jay Riola.



He discusses three vital steps to adopting new technology like data warehousing:

  1. Capture it.
  2. Organize it.
  3. Integrate it.

Of course, there’s a little more to it. In addition to early technology adoption, we talk about:

  • Operating the Magic’s database in a snowflake structure.
  • How the Magic is offering a richer experience for all fans.
  • Why providing season ticket holders with more options increases retention rates.
