SAP has joined hands with the International Cricket Council (ICC) to enhance the fan experience during the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
SAP HANA Cloud Platform and SAP Lumira software help analyze and simplify ball-by-ball match data in real time, providing fans with statistics and historical insights for matches on the ICC Match Centre.
Earlier, IBM announced its partnership with the International Cricket Council, the organizing body for the sporting event.
The ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 has already achieved 3 million downloads of the official mobile app.
The event web site is responsive, adapting to all devices.
The Match Centre presented by SAP, available across both platforms, houses the live scores online.
David Richardson, chief executive officer, ICC, said: “Thanks to the work we are doing with partners like SAP, we are allowing fans around the world unprecedented access to more closely follow the action of the World Cup and their favorite players.”
SAP is providing 40 years of ICC Cricket World Cup historical statistics to fans. This data is featured on the ICC Match Centre and offers fans new ways to compare past and present team and player performance.
By utilizing the predictive capabilities of the SAP HANA platform, it is now possible to help identify some of the best bowlers and batsmen at the ICC Cricket World Cup based on the analysis of multiple statistical criteria.
