As a world-leading gaming provider, INTRALOT continually strives for innovative products with optimal customer and stakeholder value. INTRALOT’s product development follows a structural approach that combines information from different sources, including market research, customer requirements, advances in technology and the gaming sector, compliance and security requirements as well as collaborative initiatives. To this effect, COBIT® 5 delivers value from enterprise information systems by linking business goals to IT goals and bridging the gap between control requirements, business risks and technical issues.
