Intralot has announced a partnership with Microsoft to enhance the firm’s digital capacity and build on its strategy to introduce ‘business innovation through digital technology’.
The gaming solutions supplier will unlock its capabilities using Microsoft Azure, with Lotos X for retail and Internet lotteries, and Intralot Orion for retail and internet sports betting becoming cloud-ready to achieve reduced time-to-market, immediate scalability, availability, and interoperability.
“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,” stated Dr. Chris Dimitriadis, Intralot Group CEO. “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.”
The collaboration provides Intralot with a cloud operating model that increases efficiencies and helps the rapid adaptation of its digital core across the business.
The firm will use Azure to power its digital transformation journey, partially to address demands for a 24/7 global operation. Moreover, the solution will enable a faster time-to- market expansion model and accelerating product/service innovation via cloud-native services.
Theodosis Michalopoulos, Microsoft CEO Greece, Cyprus and Malta added: “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 organisations meet their business challenges and to empower their successful navigation in a rapidly changing environment.”
