NBA, SAP Taking The Wraps Off Advanced Statistical Database
The NBA and official business analytics software partner SAP today will debut nba.com/stats, the new statistical engine months in the making. Available before to team personnel and credentialed NBA media, the advanced statistical database will now be free and available to the public. The site features box scores for every game in league history and allows for advanced statistical analysis with a capability of more than 4.5 quadrillion computations. The site will be updated after each game and eventually will include links to video, in addition to featuring a wide variety of links to social media platforms for fans to share data.
The portal will be supported by advertising, like most other parts of NBA.com, and also is designed as an indirect driver toward consumption of other league content such as televised games.
