Tech Mahindra said the platform aims to revolutionize digital capabilities for sports organizations and offer immersive, personalized experiences for sports fans globally. The collaboration, formalized in September 2023, focuses on bringing sports institutions and fans closer together.
Enhancing fan experience
The sports cloud platform is designed to meet the growing demands of sports fans for enhanced experiences. It leverages the Internet of Things (IoT) for efficient sports stadium management and provides data-driven insights for sports organizations.
Satish Menon, CEO, Punjab Kings, said, “I'm pleased to know about Tech Mahindra’s collaboration with AWS to build a sports cloud, and it’s exciting that it can accelerate the digital transformation aspiration for sporting organisations. Combining action from on-and-off-the-field with digital initiatives can create new opportunities for global sporting organisations to engage fans and take them deeper into the game. This can enable sporting organisations to plan broadcasting and content development in more creative ways, and offer greater game insights, all from a fan’s perspective. My best wishes to the teams from Tech Mahindra and AWS.”
The company said the new platform will be built on AWS and will utilize real-time analytics, AI, ML, AR/VR, enriched broadcasting, and Web 3.0 technologies. The advanced tools will process high volumes of digital data, elevating the sports fan experience.
AWS services like AWS Elemental MediaLive, MediaConvert, Amazon Kinesis Data Streams, and Amazon Managed Blockchain will be integral to the platform's functionality, it said.
