The ice hockey league NHL (National Hockey League) is entertaining millions of sports fans from 1917.
It is played for approximately 10 months in a year, 30 teams participates in this game, 7 from Canada and 23 are from United States.
It's always been a challenge to process the huge data generated from 1300+ matches in each season, also it's been difficult to offer a responsive and interactive information portal for 100 million NHL fans.
The innovation of in-memory computing in SAP HANA would help to deal with the massive amount of data. Not only just static statistics of games, also by capturing real time information SAP HANA would be able to generate instant predictive analytics to provide a better insight of games for NHL followers.
Using SAP HANA, NHL would be able to record each fans activity and reaction to certain events. Also, fans could visualize more engaging enhanced stats of their favorite teams and players in a better interactive way. By understanding patterns in fans' activity, NHL would be able to focus on improving its services.
