The Impact of Technology on Sports

Athletes can benefit in many ways with the help of technology which will put them in a better position to reach their goals. Safety in sports is improving because improvements are being made to sports protective equipment and to exercise routines which will prevent injury or other forms of shock to an athlete's physical condition. Performance of sports people is also improving as evidenced by record performance times and achievements which in the past was thought to be impossible.

Currently sports fan engagement technology is popular because more fans have become digitally savvy, and have adapted to following sports on digital platforms. With this comes digital media and content platforms which keep us up to date with what is happening in the world of sports. Referees in sports are increasingly working with technology and have become better at making decisions in the game which are critical to how the game progresses.

HarvyT hosts Kevin Ssemwogerere who is a Charted Accountant, and a Digital Innovator on the Area Code show, to share his independent Tech Business Insights, and today, we discuss The Impact of Technology on Sports.

Higher Health has launched a dedicated 24 hour toll free mental helpline

Covid 19 has probably had an impact on everyone globally, some people have been affected directly by the virus, others have been affected by restrictions on movement and travel, and most people have experienced increased stress and anxiety levels as a result of the global pandemic. With South Africa now being ranked in the Top 5 of the countries with the highest number of recorded Covid-19 cases, this will have a negative impact on people's mental health including students and staff in the institutions of Higher learning.

As universities, Tvet and CET colleges currently prepare for the safe return of students to Campuses amid Covid-19, they cannot neglect the psychological support that will be needed by students and staff. Under the Guidance of the Department Of Higher Education and Training in Support with the South African Depression and Anxiety Group, Higher Health has launched a dedicated 24 hour toll free mental helpline.

The impact of Application Programmming Interfaces on businesses

API have been around since the 1960s. It is a topic which is commonly discussed among software developers but it is worth learning about about because it impacts the daily lives of ordinary people. APIs are built to execute repetitive tasks in the background of systems which connect devices, databases and apps without us even noticing.

Connectivity in the modern digital world has driven demand for solutions which are optimised through APIs. Daily activities such as transportation through e-hailing and navigating a journey through GPS enabled applications are supported by a range of APIs. Businesses are increasingly considering the importance of APIs in innovation for modern customer centric products and services. Industries are emerging as immediate beneficiaries of the efficiencies that come with API use in the streamlining of business operations.

HarvyT hosts Kevin Ssemwogerere who is a Chartered Accountant and Tech Business Enthusiast on the AreaCode show, to hear his independent opinion on Tech Business Insights.
