Blog: The Tibco Blog

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Want to accurately predict the winners and losers of the largest basketball tournament of the year? TIBCO is ready with the assist. Join us on March 15th, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT, as data science experts pass along the information you need to be successful in your bracket predictions. 

Improve your chances of winning

Part of what makes the tournament so exciting is the shocking upsets and successful underdogs that each year brings. But with such unreliability, a perfect bracket takes work. Facing near-impossible odds, those who come closest to a perfect bracket will need to go beyond furious Googling of this season’s all-stars and potential upsets. Filling out your bracket should be science, based on past tournament results and modeled with leading data science and analytics software. 

Just as businesses must leverage data-driven decision making over gut-driven speculation, you must employ analytics-backed forecasting when filling out your bracket. With TIBCO Spotfire®, you can turn fingers-crossed hunches into solid predictions. In fact, in the last two NCAA tournaments, TIBCO customers ranked in the 99th percentile with their brackets and a majority of our last webinar’s attendees won their office pools!

Legend James Worthy joins our roster 

For this year’s virtual event, basketball legend James “Big Game” Worthy, is joining our roster. James Worthy literally won this bracket, leading the North Carolina Tarheels to an NCAA Championship in 1982.  As a pro, he helped the Los Angeles Lakers to NBA championships in 1985, 1987, and 1988, and slam-dunking his way into basketball history. Now, as an NBA Analyst, Worthy will be joining us to discuss the explosion of analytics in professional basketball. Make sure to hang out after the session for virtual autographs from Worthy sent directly to your inbox!

Come prepared to win!
