Hang Time Meets Real Time: Behind the scenes of bringing The Leonardo Hoops Event at SAP SAPPHIRE together
SAP’s annual juggernaut of an IT conference, Sapphire Now, is time of year for the global ERP software company to showcase its latest innovations in software upgrades, functionality, and business value. In years past, some of the unveilings have been SAP Simple Finance, SAP S/4HANA, S/4HANA Cloud, and SAP Cloud Platform. Introduced at last year’s Sapphire Now, (and one of this year’s hottest topics that SAP is looking to showcase) is SAP Leonardo; a digital innovation system that leverages SAP Cloud Platform to integrate new technologies such as IoT, Machine Learning, Analytics, Blockchain, and more.
Inspired to showcase some of SAP Leonardo’s unique functionality, SAP teamed up with the Denver based SAP consulting company, NIMBL, to create custom applications that track athletic performance and give real time analytics on speed, endurance, accuracy, and physical potential. Thus, the SAP Leonardo Basketball Event and NIMBL Bball Skills challenge were born.
