Microsoft Applications as Ultimate Athlete Management System?

 

In the following article I am discussing Microsoft applications that could be used to create Athlete Management software, such as SharePoint Online, PowerBi and so forth. I believe in the months to come Microsoft will strengthen his position as Business Intelligence leader and it is definitely as must to get familiar with the new tools.

Microsoft is investing a lot into the business intelligence (BI) field and I am wondering could Microsoft applications be used as Athlete Management System?

I mean, we (Sport Scientists/Coaches/Performance Directors) try to reinvent the wheel – when there are years and years of experience of running, managing, administering teams and creating collaboration in the business world. What softwares are being used to make huge businesses tick, what is being used for KPI dashboards, managing salaries and generally managing business administration? In my opinion we should learn from these fields (business) since they have longer history and already implemented and working solutions.

We already keep running out training (and our databases) in Excel – which is not the best tool to do it, but works fine for smaller teams. Besides, with the new Microsoft applications, such as Office 365, PowerBI, Azure Machine Learning and SharePoint Online maybe that’s what we need really?   We are trying to import data from Excel/CSV to AMS solutions and then easily export to Excel/Tableau/SpotFire/R for analysis and dashboarding anyway, so why not skip the middle man and finish all in Microsoft applications?
If big corporations can do it, why can’t we?

    Yes, I have thought that it should be possible to place ‘Annual Planner’ in the cloud, and have athletes enter data that the coach/trainer can see instantly. And then reports etc can be generated from it. Maybe even email alerts could be sent automaticaaly after ‘x’ amount of athlete data input is not received.

    The only problem now is that Excel Online doesn’t support PowerPivot… yet…
