Sports press portal for SID

SID is a leading Sports-News agency in Germany. Almost all big TV-stations in Germany and all big digital sports portals in Germany chose SID for content delivery. With more than 100 people the SID is delivering high-quality sports content every day of the year.

DATA2VISUAL is proud to provide the SID with multiple digital solutions. For example, we have built and support the sports press portal of the SID – spp.cloud – and we have also build data-visualization for the Olympic games in Pyeongchang.

The press portal is built mostly by a serverless backend while the frontend is made with react. Of course, the page is optimized for mobile as well. Additionally, to the normal functions of a sports press portal, we also included features like scheduling or extensive logging to increase compliance.

We are proud that one of our visualizations, which is updated through custom API endpoints that we created for the SID, has been shown right in the German house (the central meeting place for Olympic players from Germany in Pyeonchang) on a screen in the club-hous. On it, the Olympic players saw all up-to-date medal scores (update cycle every few seconds).
