Analytics is a serious question, and has many applications also in the field of sports. This is demonstrated by the fact that the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford and other US-based universities are organizing annual conferences and a series of institutional activities in the field of sport analytics. Microsoft has devoted an initial endowment of 17 million Euro, has established the Global Sport Innovation Centre in Madrid and supports entrepreneurs and startup linked with the world of sports. What can the sociology of big data tell to managers/entrepreneurs and researchers? How can our generation prepare for the revolution of big data? How can society reap the benefit of globalizing technologies?
