The new EQ Formula E Team has announced its first technology partnership with SAP. In a long-term collaborative venture, the leader in enterprise software is set to become the official Business Performance Partner of the team which will join the world’s only all-electric Formula racing series in Season 6 (2019/20). 

 

 

“We are delighted to announce SAP as the first Principal Partner of our new Mercedes EQ Formula E Team”, said Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport .

 

SAP and Mercedes engineers will also use SAP HANA® to develop engineering solutions to help them analyze the large volumes of data from the Formula E racing cars and monitor their overall performance and make use of additional components that include the SAP Cloud Platform, the SAP Leonardo digital innovation system, the Internet of Things (IoT) and predictive and machine learning functionalities.

 

“Although we are still 18 months away from our first race, this new agreement demonstrates the commercial potential of the series – and gives us a strong basis from which to begin our next phase of technical and sporting preparations for the Season 6 entry”, added Wolff. “This agreement will combine traditional brand value with the use of innovative technologies that will contribute meaningfully to our on-track performance.”
