Developer is QlikView and is available for free

Sports enthusiasts will now be better able to follow events at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia this February 7 to 23, with the aid of big data at absolutely no cost.

Making this possible will be the Winter Edition of Global Games App developed by the provider of business intelligence solutions, QlikTech International AB.

A press statement by the Radnor, Pennsylvania-based vendor said the application will enable sports fans around the world to visualize, analyze, compare and contrast the extensive history and results of the winter games over the years.

The app is now available for free online or through any mobile device.

New Facts

As such, the app enables fans to slice and dice data on their favourite athletes, events, disciplines and countries, uncovering new facts and aiding predictions for medal winners in this year's Winter Olympics.

The app will draw on historical data from past events.

The app has been built on the success of the vendor's earlier Global Games App developed for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

The 2014 Winter Games will be the 22nd Olympiad of its kind and will feature 98 events in 15 winter sports disciplines.
