Software and technology company SAP has partnered with Valve for the Dota 2 ‘The International 2022’ held in Singapore. SAP, which is taking on the role of Official Cloud Analytics Partner of the event, will work closely with Valve in order to improve the quality of the tournament’s broadcasts by understanding its analytics. SAP will utilize its SAP HANA Cloud technology to store and access match data throughout the tournament. The duo will focus on pre and post-match insights such as the best hero for each player, win and loss data, heroes played, and average match duration.
Lars Lamadé, Head of Global Sponsorships at SAP, commented: “Thriving for constant innovation is the core of our business at SAP and the reason why we are active in esports. The partnership with Valve was a logical next step and we’re eager to employ SAP technologies that will enhance and elevate the fan experience during The International 11.”
