SAP is collaborating with sailors and organisers at the Extreme Sailing Series in Oman to provide new data and analytics to help the teams improve performance.
SAP Sailing Analytics provides insights and transparency to the world of sailing by utilising cloud and in-memory SAP HANA technology, processing GPS and wind measurement data in real-time and then visualising contents through the use of live leader boards and 3D visualisations.
In 2012 SAP became the Official Technical Partner of the Extreme Sailing Series.
“Oman’s Extreme Sailing Series is at the cutting edge of global sporting innovation,” said Waheed Al Hamaid, Country Manager, SAP Oman.
“Our involvement in the sport has transformed the sailing experience by providing tools. Sailors can analyse performance and optimise strategy, fans are closer to the action, and the media gain information and insights to deliver a better-informed commentary.”
SAP is the title sponsor of the SAP Extreme Sailing Team, improving race and training performances.
Rasmus Kostner, Co-Skipper, SAP Extreme Sailing Team, said: “The ability to review and analyse our performance between acts has proved invaluable this season – from race to race we are able to identify areas where we can make improvements and optimise our strategy and planning.”
