Innovation

Driven by experience and passion to shape the future

We consistently bring innovation to our Betting, Lottery and Interactive Games offerings, through our comprehensive set of advanced retail and mobile solutions, platform-enablers, content delivery and management systems, as well as CRM software. Innovation is driven by field experience and knowledge from our clients and partners and is filtered into end products incorporating the latest technology trends from the market and participation in academic and applied research projects.

Achievements

With our investments in Research and Development, we believe that we are at the forefront of gaming product development. Some of our recent achievement include:

• Vast improvement of our solutions through the creation of a pre-integrated cloud-based eco-system of 3rd party games applications & services.
• Ability to absorb individual client change requests faster, through a more flexible system and at a much lower cost.
• Adoption of a flexible development approach which allows for out-sourcing of small development or testing tasks to lower-cost partners.
• Adoption of modern technologies and open-source platform components, allowing us also to be able to benefit more in the future by technological advances driven by the leading internet and cloud companies which are now more and more the significant technology innovators.
• Adoption of agile methodologies and an agile culture.
• Design and implementation of software components to be used as building blocks for a variety of products and solutions of the company.
• Adoption of not only a microservices technological architecture, but also a microservices-inspired approach to product management and product evolution, allowing our customers to build certain applications or services themselves – or extend existing ones provided by their core vendor.
• Full support of any of the following deployments: local data center deployment (traditional WLA style), private cloud deployment, hybrid private/public cloud deployment – depending on customer requirements and business model.
• True hardware independence through the use of modern containerized technologies that achieve true independence of containerized applications from any target hardware platform, thus allowing for dynamic distributed deployments.
