They finally did it ladies and gentlemen, the Broncos have won the super bowl! If we look deeper into the Broncos and the super bowl we can see that Big Data is all around.

There is lots of Big Data that goes into relaying footage to a tablet to be viewed by the played on the sidelines.

Speaking of Big Data promoting the ability to view a play, that is how us fans at home watch each game! All of the lines we see on the field and the replays that show different play patterns are all produced through the quick analysis of big data from multiple different cameras and angles.

From the data produced through social media, companies can get a quick look at what their consumers think about their products.
