Sports Data Service – Frequently Asked Questions:
Our sports data feeds are in Extensible Markup Language (XML) and is delivered via XML PUSH method. In order to receive the data you need to set up a path we can send the data to. You then need to parse the XML data you receive from us to fit with the data structure on your website, application, software etc. We also provide hosted widget solutions and all of our widgets are responsive so you can use our hosted solution all across different platforms.
Entity Digital currently cover cricket sport with best ever details provided in industry , but we are developing our platform to provide more sports like soccer , American sports , tennis , badminton ,racing sport and other athletic games.
Our XML sports data service requires basic knowledge of XML and data processing. Our sports data widgets, however, require no particular technical knowledge as they are created and managed by us.
We strive to update all of our sports data as close to live as possible within the sporting events we cover, without compromising on accuracy and reliability of information. Latency varies by competitions and all of our operations are carried out using trusted sources, which enable us to deliver fast and reliable updates of livescores.
For the events which are covered with results only we add the final result as soon as it is published after the event.
With our XML Sports Data solutions you will receive raw data feeds in XML format. These you must integrate and publish yourself on your website, application, software etc. You will need to set up a receiving server, which we can push (send) the XML to as explained above, and parse it into your database structure.
Our Sports Data Widgets contain the same sports data as the XML feed. However, we have already processed and put the data into a structured and styled html module, which you simply need to “copy/paste” on your website as you desire. So, in short, the XML Sports Data Feeds (as explained above) require some technical knowledge in receiving and processing data but gives you maximum freedom to utilize the data, whereas the widget product is a “ready-made” white-label solution, which is ideal if your company wants to avoid spending time on data integration and have as little technical work to do as possible.
