Green Bay Packers Win Superbowl XLV, Used Decision Lens Software for Player Selection
Innovative Software Solutions Also Used in Baseball and Hockey Team Lineup Decisions
The second oldest franchise in the NFL, the Green Bay Packers, won Superbowl XLV this past Sunday. They defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in a tightly contested game by a score of 31-25. The Packers were the first to use Decision Lens, a prioritization and resource allocation software solution, for player selection in a professional sporting organization.
“We had the privilege to work with the Packers to really hone in on the characteristics of an ideal prospect at each position” states CTO Dan Saaty, “Our dynamic software enabled them to be flexible and emphasize the criteria that would deliver the greatest value to their organization. The Packers’ Superbowl championship attests to the validity of this complete process.”
In 2009, the first year Decision Lens software was used for player selection, Mel Kiper of ESPN, awarded the Green Bay Packers the highest overall grade for the draft.
Decision Lens’ collaborative decision-making software also is being used for player selection by professional hockey and baseball teams.
Recently recognized by Gartner Group as a “Cool Vendor” in the emerging field of collaborative decision making software, Decision Lens has grown at a 90%+ annual growth rate since 2005. In July the company was listed by Washington Business Journal as one of the top 25 small technology companies in the Washington metropolitan area. Inc. magazine list ranked Decision Lens as Number 68 among fast-rising software companies in the Washington, DC area.
The company serves numerous well-known national and international commercial clients including Petrobras, Siemens, Walgreens, Johnson and Johnson, and Corporate Executive Board, among other organizations. Decision Lens software also is used widely throughout the federal government and across the Intelligence Community, with clients in the US Navy, the Joint Staff and CENTCOM.
