IBM has given Computing access to the technology it uses to underpin the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, keeping the website online and populated with data from the players and their matches.
Andy Burns, IBM project manager for Wimbledon.com explained that the site changes its feel depending on the environment.
"Background images on the website give it a different feel. As it turns to night you see night time shots, if it rains you see cloudy shots. It gives you a sense of place. The All England Club [which runs the tennis championships] spent a lot of time rebranding the tournament physically, giving it a better sense of place, and we're doing the same thing online."
