AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- ScoutsViewSports.com (http://ScoutsViewSports.com/beta) launched an innovative new interactive social media platform that levels the playing field for all student-athletes and provides them with an equal and cost-efficient way to gain exposure in front of an audience of coaches, college recruiters and major league scouts, while adhering to strict NCAA rules.
ScoutsView allows anyone to shop for talented students by reviewing their sports videos in many popular sports categories including baseball, basketball, football, golf, soccer, tennis, volleyball and other sports that qualify for college scholarships.
"While working with the University of Texas, I had access to coaches and scouts who were very dissatisfied with the current limitations on sports recruiting and social media," said Michael Richardson, ScoutsView's CEO. "It was this frustration and many brainstorming sessions with a wide variety of athletes and sports recruiting professionals that ultimately led to the creation of ScoutsViewSports.com."
"I personally saw many highly qualified athletes that missed out on scholarship opportunities simply because they lacked the necessary financial resources to network with the right decision makers," said Othello Henderson, ScoutsView Vice President of Operations and former NFL defensive back for the New Orleans Saints. "This is precisely why we created ScoutsView. We wanted to level the playing field and make it possible for every athlete to propel their sports career by putting their profile, stats and videos in a place where they can be viewed by the right decision makers 24x7."
How Does ScoutsView Work?
Student athletes start by building their own personal sports profile, which allows them to upload all their sports statistics such as position, height, weight, age, athletic and educational experience as well as feature footage of their star-shining moments in competitions, scrimmages, practices and actual games. These highlights are then viewable by college and university scouts, sports agents, professional sports representatives, and their fans. The ScoutsView network is unique because it's regulated, but still allows an interactive process between scouts, coaches and fans.
Growing a Fan Based with ScoutsView
An important step in a student's career is building a fan base. Many colleges, universities and professional sport teams pay close attention to athlete's star power and their ability to draw fans to sporting events. Similar to Facebook, fans can show their support for their favorite athletes by casting votes to elevate their profiles to the platform's leader boards.
ScoutsView is NCAA Compliant
NCAA rules prohibit engagement between athletes and scouts on social media sites including Facebook and Twitter because these sites do not comply with the NCAA rules for recruiting athletes, which are strictly enforced. ScoutsView is 100% NCAA compliant.
ScoutsView Empowers Financially Challenged Students
Due to NCAA rules the only option for students to reach schools is to mail recorded film clips, travel to universities to meet coaches in person or hope that they are lucky enough to be discovered by a traveling scout or recruiter. This process is very time consuming and very expensive, which limits exposure for many disadvantaged students living in financially challenged environments. Due to the lack of resources, many top-notch athletes miss out on important opportunities. ScoutsView removes this roadblock.
ScoutsView is Cost-Effective
Unlike static, cost-prohibitive sports profiling services that charge up to $100,000 per year to market up and coming sports superstars, ScoutsView is a very cost-effective, interactive way to reach coaches, recruiters and professional scouts. Regular monthly subscriptions range from $37 to $77 per month, but for the next 30 days students/parents can sign up at 50% off the regular subscription price.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
