SAP and the German National Football Team (DFB) unveiled new prototype technologies and enhancements to existing tools designed to help the team train and prepare for opponents and upcoming matches like never before during the European Championship.
Continuing a co-innovation partnership that began in 2013 and led up to the team’s victory at Football World Championship in 2014, SAP helped DFB create a game plan for the Euro Cup, which included the development of two new prototype technologies exclusively for DFB and powered by the SAP HANA Cloud Platform:
- SAP Challenger Insights – helps the team prepare for each of their European Championship matches by providing data driven insights surrounding an opponent’s offensive and defensive tendencies, formations, and more. Accessed through the SAP HANA Cloud Platform, coaches can review the opposing team’s tactical characteristics and create an assumed match plan. The data is available through iPads that DFB players have in their lockers prior to a match or during halftime and delivers the assumed game plan of the opposing team so the team can familiarize themselves with opponent tendencies and reference past video replays.
