Daniel Link explores how data analytics can be used for studying performance in soccer. Based on spatiotemporal data from the German Bundesliga, the six individual studies in this book present innovative mathematical approaches for game analysis and player assessment. The findings can support coaches and analysts to improve performance of their athletes and inspire other researchers to advance the research field of sports analytics.
Sie möchten endlich wissen, was es mit Predictive Analytics auf sich hat und ob es vielleicht mathematische Verfahren gibt, die Ihnen die Prognose zukünftiger Entwicklungen erleichtern? Dieses Buch versetzt Sie mit den passenden Werkzeugen schnell in die Lage, Daten zu sammeln und zu analysieren und dann Vorhersagen zu machen. Die Autoren werden Sie nicht mit höherer Mathematik behelligen, sondern stattdessen anhand von zahlreichen Beispielen deutlich machen, welche Algorithmen wann zum Ziel führen und wie man die richtigen Modelle für die Zukunft wählt. Auch vermeintliche Randthemen werden angesprochen wie ´´Wie erkläre und präsentiere ich die Erkenntnisse den Kollegen?´´, ´´Was sind realistische Ziele?´´ und ´´Was kann ich mir finanziell leisten?´´

This book presents selected proceedings of the annual convention of the Computer Society of India. Divided into 10 topical volumes, the proceedings present papers on state-of-the-art research, surveys, and succinct reviews. They cover diverse topics ranging from communications networks to big data analytics, and from system architecture to cyber security. This book focuses on Software Engineering, and informs readers about the state of the art in software engineering by gathering high-quality papers that represent the outcomes of consolidated research and innovations in Software Engineering and related areas. In addition to helping practitioners and researchers understand the chief issues involved in designing, developing, evolving and validating complex software systems, it provides comprehensive information on developing professional careers in Software Engineering. It also provides insights into various research issues such as software reliability, verification and validation, security and extensibility, as well as the latest concepts like component-based development, software process models, process-driven systems and human-computer collaborative systems.
Use the many types of tools required to navigate and maintain a microservice ecosystem. This book examines what is normally a complex system of interconnected services and clarifies them one at a time, first examining theoretical requirements then looking at concrete tools, configuration, and workflows. Building out these systems includes many concerns such as containerization, container orchestration, build pipelines and continuous integration solutions, automated testing, service discovery, logging and analytics. You will examine each of these tools and understand how they can be combined within an organization. You will design an automated build pipeline from Pull Request to container deployment, understand how to achieve High Availability and monitor application health with Service Discovery, and learn how to collaborate with other teams, write documentation, and describe bugs. Covering use of Jenkins, Docker, Kubernetes, the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana), and StatsD and Grafana for analytics, you will build on your existing knowledge of Service-Oriented Architecture and gain an advanced, practical understanding of everything from infrastructure development to team collaboration. What You´ll Learn Design an API to be convenient for developers to consume. Deploy dynamic instances of Microservices and allow then to discover each other. Track the health of a Microservice and be notified in case of degraded performance. Write effective documentation and communicate efficiently with other teams. Who This Book Is For Those who would like a better understanding of System Oriented Architecture. Those who would like to break a monolith into smaller Microservices. Those who are familiar with Microservices and would like a better understanding of peripheral technologies.
