Roland Garros Tennis Datables

IBM data for the Roland Garros French Tennis Open, held between May 24 and June 7, 2015, was presented through a series of animated infographics. For tennis fans, data is important. But it’s not always easy to digest. Which is why for Roland-Garros 2015, Ogilvy Paris & IBM created a series of real-time animations that updated fans about pivotal moments in the matches 60,000 times faster than text. The ads, which ran on over 500 digital out of home boards around France throughout the 2 week tournament, generated data visualizations to reflect important events in the matches as they happened. By using analogy and comparison, the campaign made complex data understandable in the blink of an eye. The Roland-Garros Tennis Datables campaign included Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts, as well as out-of-home installations.
