Akumina was one of a small group of technology partners that had the opportunity to attend last week’s MLB IT Summit in Denver, CO. The Summit brought together a diverse group of IT leaders from across the sports industry.  

I want to extend a huge thank you to Brian Shield, CIO for the Boston Red Sox, recent World Series Champions!

Brian shared his fantastic vision of the Boston Red Sox’s workplace experience and led a session with our team detailing his recent win implementing a digital workspace, on the Akumina platform, to over 1,500 year-round and game-day employees.

Brian’s session was very well attended and started a great discussion around the employee experience in the sports industry. Brian also shared his tremendous success in using the platform for onboarding and offboarding employees. Attendees learned approaches that MLB clubs have used to drive internal communication, enhance employee productivity, and empower their employees.
