  • If you are a football fan, you would have probably come across the story of the role played by data analytics in Germany’s unbeaten run in the 2014’s world cup. Following a 7-1 victory against Brazil in the semifinals, Germany brought Argentina to their knees in a nail-biting final. In truth, the 12th man during their dream run was big data analytics. German football management recognized the players’ average ball possession time and reduced it from 3.4 seconds to 1.1 seconds per person. Today, big data has long become bulk data. If big data analytics can help win the world cup in 2014, imagine what it can achieve now. Rochan Pattnayak, Chief Research Officer, Choice Equity Broking Private Limited, is on a mission to democratize the benefits of data analytics among equity investors in the country. Having had his baby steps in investment management by keeping track of stock prices and related news for his father at a young age, Rochan today is a stellar C-Suite investment management professional with robust experience and international exposure.
