Kijkers van Eurosport kiezen Bolt, Ennis en Spanje als Sportman, Sportvrouw en Sportploeg van het Jaar in sportverkiezing georganiseerd in samenwerking met AIPS

Usain Bolt, Jessica Ennis en het Spaanse mannenvoetbalelftal zijn door het publiek als winnaars gekozen in de door Eurosport in samenwerking met de AIPS (International Sports Press Association) georganiseerde verkiezing van de Sportman, Sportvrouw en Sportploeg van het Jaar 2012.

Sportliefhebbers uit de hele wereld brachten meer dan 60.000 stemmen uit in deze verkiezing van Eurosport die werd gehouden op de Facebook-pagina van de zender om de beste sportman, sportvrouw en sportploeg van het jaar te kiezen.

Het zal niemand verrassen dat deelnemers aan de Olympische Spelen van Londen 2012 in dit Olympische jaar de boventoon voeren. De Spelen werden live uitgezonden op Eurosport en ze stonden duidelijk nog vers in het geheugen van de sportliefhebbers gegrift. Usain Bolt leverde in Londen een ongelofelijke prestatie door drie gouden medailles in de wacht te slepen, net als in Peking in 2008. De Jamaicaan domineerde de mannencategorie van de verkiezing met maar liefst 40,81% van de stemmen, ruim voor Cristiano Ronaldo (16,71%) en Yannick Agnel (9,53%).

De Britse heldin Jessica Ennis, winnares van het goud op de vijfkamp tijdens de Olympische Spelen in haar eigen land, veroverde 38,21% van de stemmen in de vrouwencategorie. Hiermee liet ze Serena Williams (30,61%) en Marit Bjoergen (10,73%) achter zich.

Een uitstekend Spaans voetbalelftal veroverde zijn derde opeenvolgende grote internationale titel tijdens de UEFA EURO 2012, eveneens uitgezonden op Eurosport. Het team veroverde 42,34% van de stemmen in de categorie sportploeg, ruim voor het Amerikaanse mannenbasketbalteam met 14,22% en FC Barcelona met 13,91%.

"2012 is een fantastisch jaar geweest voor de sport, en het vervult ons met trots dat Eurosport zoveel grote evenementen heeft uitgezonden en daarmee de liefhebbers de best mogelijke verslaggeving heeft geboden. Sporters als Bolt, Ennis en de Spaanse voetballers maakten een uitzonderlijk jaar door - zelfs afgemeten aan hun eigen hoge normen - en dit wordt weerspiegeld in de stemmen van zowel het publiek als van de deskundige jury. We verheugen ons er nu al op om ze ook in 2013 weer op Eurosport in actie te zien,” aldus de woordvoerder van Eurosport, Global Communications Director Heather Bowler.

In het kader van het toenemende samenwerkingsverband met de AIPS heeft Eurosport zich in 2012 voor het eerst aangesloten bij het initiatief voor de verkiezing van de Sportman, Sportvrouw en Sportploeg van het Jaar. Dit jaar bood Eurosport zijn kijkers de gelegenheid hun stem te laten horen naast die van de internationale sportmediaprofessionals van het AIPS die in hun jaarlijkse sportverkiezing kozen voor Usain Bolt, Serena Williams en het Spaanse voetbalelftal.

Eurosport is sportentertainmentgroep nr. 1 in Europa, en biedt maar liefst zeven tv-kanalen en een internationaal netwerk van 15 websites in 11 talen.

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
