CANA, providing analytics intel for success!
About CANA eSports and eSports Analytics
CANA is a woman-veteran owned small business located in Northern Virginia that provides innovative analytics and logistics operations solutions and services for both Federal and Commercial clients. CANA launched a sports analytics line with capabilities in advanced analytics, modeling and simulation, and data analysis in early 2015. We are now expanding those capabilities into the world of esports.
Games and the World of Esports Analytics
The esports industry is growing at an exponential rate and there are substantial amounts of data available due to its entirely virtual operating environment. Although there are numerous data and analytical sources for esports, there is not much in-depth analysis being done. CANA recognizes there is data not being utilized to its full potential, and we strive to be a catalyst in furthering the success of esports through analytics.
How CANA SUPPORTS ESPORTS
ESPORTS Services & Solutions
The CANA esports team understands vast data on esports should be easily accessible but often is not. We present a new way to capture and analyze more useful data. CANA’s innovative and unique take on esports analytics allows us to implement new metrics for a variety of games, and/or offer new solutions to players, students, schools, programs, and/or companies. A key to promoting the growth and success of esports is to provide everyone with more detailed data that will drive informed decisions and ultimately help the players, organizers, and audience understand the true value esports offers.
Esports Programs & Companies - Scholastic, Amateur, Professional
Get in-depth, insightful analytics on how your program is performing and the overall impact it is having on your school or organization.
Discover your true value, as an individual and to your team, by accessing in-depth analytics on your gameplay.
League Analytics Provider
Aside from tracking data within an esports league, CANA provides unique analytics graphics and dashboards that enhance live streams, consumer engagement, and overall league offerings. CANA can also implement new metrics to measure within the esports industry. Through our traditional sports projects, CANA has valuable experience in normalizing rankings at state and national levels. This can be a crucial statistic for esports because records do not always portray the true value of a team or organization. Other factors such as the difficulty of schedule and environmental factors are key aspects needed to accurately evaluate performance.
CANA provides enhanced league offerings such as gameplay and business data and stats tracking systems, real-time live stream stats and unique analytics graphics, and much more!
The esports industry pathway to pro is fragmented, but CANA intends to help bring it together. There are many unexplored, but valuable, opportunities available for the competitive gameplay and business side of esports. CANA’s unique and innovative recruitment platform fills this gap for individuals and organizations that lack the resources available to capitalize on those opportunities. Our recruitment platform will support both gameplay and business career recruitment with the top class of industry professionals and colleges actively looking for talent. CANA can create standardized metrics for players by pinpointing the most valuable attributes needed for each game and analyzing which strategies produce the best results. This provides ample benefits to the college and professional teams and the players by highlighting key areas. We pride ourselves on helping people, teams, schools, and companies unlock their full potential.

Promoting Gaming Diversity
CANA supports women in esports advancements. CANA believes esports is a sport that has no gender-based advantages, yet it still maintains needless separations. CANA can help the esports industry take the needed steps to incorporate co-ed teams through specific capabilities, such as data quality and analytic assessments, operations research, and studies and analyses. CANA can pinpoint key performance indicators (KPIs) and trends in the esports industry, with a focus on female participation and viewership, and propose optimization models and solutions to leagues, teams, organization, and supporting companies. Although CANA’s focus is on women in esports, we aim to support all minority and disadvantaged groups in esports. These capabilities are transferable to any group.
Grow the representation of women and other underrepresented groups in esports!

This organization had four teams compete in the GSG bracket: GSG US Army, GSG Navy, GSG Air Force, and GSG Marines. GSG Army was the dominant team as they did not lose a single game on their path to winning the title.
CANA’s INVOLVEMENT: CANA provided real-time gameplay analytics for both brackets.

This and other metrics were all done real-time and shown on the live stream of the event.
