The NHL and SAP are teaming up to give coaches access, via the iPad, to over 60 different real-time individual and team stats. The iPads will be on the benches so coaches can use them during the game. It's the latest, and one of the coolest, bits of software to come out of Apple and SAP's now years-long partnership.
From the NHL:
The SAP/NHL Coaching Insights App for iPad is set to debut sometime after the league takes its All-Star break.
I know genetic engineering is how a lot of people see (and fear) the future of athletics. But, thanks to technology like the iPad, the SDK, and ARKit, we're also on the verge of data-driven revolution.
It'll be amazing to see where this all goes next.
