Microsoft azure taps intralot to boost its multimedia options

Intralot, Lottery and Gaming Technology Company, has had its ups and downs over the last few years and aims to smooth out some of the hard spots. To do this, it feels that a new alliance with Microsoft will make the difference.

A few days earlier, the organization announced it would continue using Microsoft Azure to help it incorporate its market growth techniques through improved digital technologies.

With the support of the cloud-based platform Azure, Intralot is looking to shift the model of how it does business at present. It launches new product lines, Lotos X and Intralot Orion, which will use Azure's strength to improve their operating performance and enable them in the gaming environment to gain faster adaptation. Lotos x is a product line developed for online and internet-based lotteries, while Orion addresses the sports gaming market by delivering a cloud-based solution that can result in faster ramp-up times and instant scalability.

In teaming up with Microsoft, intralot plans to make big improvements to help the business adapt to the ever-evolving gaming space more rapidly. Dr. Chris Dimitriadis, Intralot Group CEO, declares:

We are delighted to partner with Microsoft as we accelerate the execution of our strategy in transforming the industries that we serve through digital technology. Lotos X and INTRALOT Orion are designed for building ecosystems around them, for rapidly achieving a diversified portfolio of gaming offerings, and for scaling to meet the new demand created by players and operators. Our products in Microsoft Azure open the way for an unlimited set of opportunities for gaming operators.

In the business world, the jump to cloud-based operations is not unusual, and particularly not in the igaming market. Where several regions and destinations are served by a single agency, the use of the cloud is a tremendous benefit to ensure efficient and reliable running of operations. Azure's intrinsic scalability ensures faster implementation and less criteria for setup, enabling organizations to make changes with minimal continuity breaks.

Microsoft CEO Theodosis Michalopoulos sees Azure as a fantastic chance for intralot to take a big step forward. He states: "Our collaboration with Intralot is a milestone that reflects how technology can fuel the growth and strategic vision of a large group, leading gaming operations. Microsoft Azure is designed to help organizations meet their business challenges and to empower their successful navigation in a rapidly changing environment.”
