SAP Powers The ASEAN Data Science Explorers Competition

The ASEAN Foundation

Since inception in 1967 between Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has expanded to include Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam. Together, ASEAN members aim to accelerate economic growth and development.

Turning 50 his year the ASEAN Foundation is working with strategic partners to establish several new initiatives centred around building a sense of ASEAN identity. The first of these is the ASEAN Data Science Explorers (ASEAN DSE).


ASEAN Data Science Explorers (ASEAN DSE)

The ASEAN Data Science Explorers is a regional competition jointly organised with SAP. It encourages ASEAN tertiary students from any discipline in all ten member states to harness the power of data, highlighting the key issues in ASEAN and derive meaningful insights that lead to innovative solutions.

Titled “Today’s Youth for Tomorrow’s World”, this competition will allow all ASEAN youths to play a key role in tackling today’s social issues facing the region and help create positive change for a better future.

[adrotate banner=”4″]

By using the SAP BusinessObjects Cloud tool, the initiative encourages participants to deliver data-driven insights which highlight issues in ASEAN across six United Nation Sustainable Development Goals, namely;

  1. Good health and well-being
  2. Quality education
  3. Gender equality
  4. Clean water and sanitation
  5. Decent work and economic growth
  6. Sustainable cities and communities

Competitors will be judged along the lines of four key criteria; Visualization, Data, a Compelling story, and User experience. Through visual analysis, compelling charts and graphs, competitors must depict the datasets and give viewers meaningful insights. Volume, variety and relevance of data used to support themes are important, along with the design and creative layout of storyboards. Competitors must also be able to “Wow” judges in total user experience.

Through this initiative, it is also hoped that a competitive effort will produce better quality results towards the realisation of the ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community Blueprint 2025 vision of creating an ASEAN community that engages and benefits the people, and is inclusive, sustainable, resilient and dynamic.

The competition will be organised in all 10 ASEAN Member States in October, with winners of the respective in-country competitions going into a regional final that will take place in Jakarta, Indonesia in November this year.

Students can find out more about the competition and register online via the ASEAN DSE’s official website: www.aseandse.org. The registration portal is open until 16 June 2017.

The New SAP Digital Boardroom Revealed

SAP is going big in the Big Data bandwagon with the launch of the SAP Digital Boardroom.  The SAP Digital Boardroom is a planned breakthrough digital approach that aims to contextualize and simply performance reporting across all areas of business in real time. It is built on the SAP BusinessObjects Cloud Solution and could utilise data from the SAP S/4HANA suite and SAP HANA Cloud Platform.


The SAP Digital Boardroom

The SAP Digital Boardroom provides a dashboard that gives a live snapshot of the performance and operations of the company in a heavily visualized manner to aid in the decision making process. Such data and analytics would be useful in a real board meeting.

Members of the media were given a live demo on the SAP Digital Boardroom where live visualization on SAP’s performance were shown.

The SAP Digital Boardroom also features a predictive analysis function where it could simulate the performance of the business in real time simply by adjusting certain variables.

In the presentation, we were shown the impact of a 30% increase in SAP server’s capacity to the bottom line of SAP.

Such simulation is done by simply dragging a slider and the ability to simulate such performance in a live environment will change how board meetings are conducted where strategic decisions can be simulated and decisions made more quickly. This is crucial today where businesses are expected to be more agile in today’s environment.

According to Terrence Yong, Managing Director of SAP Malaysia, “SAP Digital Boardroom is able to provide total transparency to the C-Suite executives, consisting of board members and decision-makers, with a comprehensive, real-tim eview of business performance across the entire company.

The SAP Digital Boardroom can be utilized to aid not only at the highest board level but could also be used at the operations level. We were then presented with a simulation of how SAP Digital Boardroom could be used in a stadium. The Digital Boardroom would allow the operations manager to have a live view of everything that is happening in the stadium to assist with crowd control. Once again, the predictive analysis comes in handy where it could predict if the visitors to the stadium would arrive punctually depending on weather forecast and traffic data which is fed into the SAP system.

It would be interesting to see how companies would embrace the SAP Digital Boardroom but if configured correctly, it will certainly transform the way oversight processes are performed.

SAP Gives Deutscher Fussball-Bund Tactical Edge In Euro 2016

Technology and sports, while not altogether a new thing has so far remained a relatively small trend. However, during the World Cup 2014, SAP and the German team made a big bang and took football to the next level.

The SAP Match Insights solution for football that ran on the HANA platform facilitated the analysis of training, preparation and tournaments. It also gave coaches the unprecedented ability to process vast amounts of data to find and assess key situations in each match to improve player and team performance.

Now come 2016, SAP and DFB are looking to take it to the next level at the European Championship with new technology from SAP. For the upcoming European Championship, SAP has helped DFB create a game plan which includes the development of two new prototype technologies exclusively for DFB and powered by the SAP HANA Cloud Platform.

“Digitalization affects our entire economy and society, and is also entering the world of sports. SAP and DFB teamed up to spearhead this digital transformation and to take football to the next level,” said Bernd Leukert, Member of the Executive Board, SAP. “With SAP Challenger Insights and the penalty insights function for SAP Sports One, we are putting the power of real-time data and information directly into the hands of coaches and players.”

HANA Cloud to provide unique tactical insight

The first, SAP Challenger Insights, helps the team prepare for each of their European Championship matches by providing data driven insights surrounding an opponent’s offensive and defensive tendencies, formations, and more. Accessed through the SAP HANA Cloud Platform, coaches can review the opposing team’s tactical characteristics and create an assumed match plan. The data is available through iPads that DFB players have in their lockers prior to a match or during halftime and delivers the assumed game plan of the opposing team so the team can familiarize themselves with opponent tendencies and reference past video replays.

Secondly, the Penalty Insights Function in SAP Sports One, a new functionality, powered by the SAP HANA Cloud Platform, provides goalkeepers and goalkeeping coaches with insights into the tactical behavior related to penalty kicks of all teams and players competing in the tournament. The team can search the top five or more players most likely to take penalty kicks, the areas of the goal they usually aim at, specific shot characteristics such as the player’s run, and also watch corresponding video clips in real time.

“Together with SAP, we have created a match plan that puts the power of real-time data and information into our hands and helps us gain a competitive edge,” said Oliver Bierhoff, Manager of the German National Football team and SAP ambassador.

Additionally, building off the success of the Football World Championships in 2014, SAP made extensive enhancements to previously released technologies that played a significant role in the German National Team’s success resulting in their 4th Championship.
Given the stunning success of their prior co-operative efforts, there is no doubt that many will be eager to see how much farther technology can raise the bar in this sport that has captured the hearts of millions of fans worldwide.
