Data Creates Opportunity: How Seven West Media Captured Gold at the Rio Olympics

Seven West Media (SWM) is Australia’s leading multiple platform media company with a market-leading presence in broadcast television, magazine and newspaper publishing, and online. The company is the home of many of Australia’s best performing media businesses including Seven, the most-watched broadcast television platform in the country.

To support its unprecedented broadcast of the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games, SWM integrated the world’s first production implementation of the Teradata Database running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) into its existing data ecosystem. This enabled the delivery of critical insights during the event and helped directly drive audience engagement with SWM’s digital products, resulting in the creation of a powerful audience asset that that now informs their broadcasting, marketing, and advertising plans.
