Leaving behind a stable career in Banking, Ramky’s perseverance and dedication towards binding technology, and data with sports became reality in 2006, when he founded SportsMechanics, a sports data analytics organisation assiduously working towards digitising the operational activities of sporting bodies and teams, and driving talent identification program, talent monitoring, talent development, designing new revenue streams, and most importantly growing the fan/consumer base by leveraging the structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data, and the new age channels. This indeed, helped sporting bodies, and teams reduce operational expense whilst increasing the efficiency of the operations.
This paved the way for Ramky to drive game strategies for Indian Cricket Team leveraging game video and data to deploy strategic plans to outsmart the opponents and enhancing player’s performance. Ramky is the first video and data strategist to be associated with Indian Cricket Team, and is acknowledged as a pioneer in this space.
