The National Hockey League is partnering with Presidio, a global digital services and solution provider.
The league will leverage Presidio technology to enhance mission-critical platforms, including the introduction of a new NHL Draft Application, which will be used at the 2023 NHL Draft this week in Nashville.
Presidio will help enhance the NHL’s technological infrastructure, creating applications to support the broadcast of more than 1,300 games annually, and leveraging managed services to support day-to-day operations.
The NHL has made “significant investments” to build a technology infrastructure, says Peter DelGiacco, NHL senior executive vice president and chief technology officer.
The goal is to expand and advance the game, the NHL’s business and the fan experience, he adds.
The application is the first-of-its-kind for the league and aims to optimize workflow and efficiency for every NHL Draft Application user and improve NHL Draft security and confidentiality.
