SD Times Explores the Technology Behind the New York Jets Command Center Created by Roundarch

The New York Jets football organization certainly is with its new Command Center touch-screen application. Jets owner Woody Johnson used the business intelligence application for the first time during the Jets’ first regular season football game against the Baltimore Ravens at the New Meadowlands Stadium.

While using the application’s dashboard, called “The Pocket,” Johnson and other permitted individuals can access live, real-time data on tickets, merchandise, concessions and parking.

Made up of two pieces, the Jets developed a .NET application to pull data from data files to be placed into a common source, explained David Simbandumwe, engagement director at Roundarch, a designer of digital experiences that helped with the application’s development.

This particular portion of the application includes an ETL (extract, transform and load) process that accesses data feeds from point-of-sale systems Micros, Retail Pro and TicketMaster, and it summarizes the data into a consistent format, according Roundarch’s technical specs.

Roundarch built a J2EE server-side application, which retrieves the information from the database, and a touch-screen or client-side application to render everything, Simbandumwe added. The touch-screen utilizes Adobe AIR and Gesture Works, a solution for creating multi-touch applications, for touch-screen interactions, and it runs on the Windows 7 operating system.
