Be agile

By optimising your cloud teams processes, methodologies and practices, your systems will become more agile and easier to change and maintain. Quickly and easily implementing functional and non-functional changes through well-oiled pipelines and processes is critical for iGaming organisations that need to be able to respond quickly to changes in user and regulatory demands. Within the DevSecOps space, we pride ourselves in being your trusted partner in harnessing the power of agile frameworks and help integrate best-practice development, operations and security practices throughout the cloud infrastructure lifecycle, enabling rapid, secure, and reliable delivery of applications and services.

Improve performance

Cloud optimisation also helps you to improve the performance of your games products by optimising the game's underlying code and assets. Performance goes hand-in-hand with assuring an efficient, resilient and stable product for your end-user and our Performance Engineering services help fine-tune and elevate system performance, bolstering responsiveness and reliability even during the most demanding scenarios.
Scale-2

Increase scalability:

Ensuring your platforms scalability can meet your business demand at any point in time is vital in the iGaming landscape which experiences drastic peaks in demand throughout the year. Cloud Optimisation makes it easier to add or remove cloud resources as needed and when needed. Capacitas knowledge and expertise in Capacity Management assures gaming organisations that your platforms remain agile, scalable and adaptable to the known and other unforseen needs without having an adverse impact on your underlying cost of operations. This ensures your OPEX is kept in check, and you always know what to expect in a vast range of unforeseen scenarios. 

Overall, cloud optimisation is a vital tool for gaming companies that want to reduce costs, improve performance, increase scalability, and improve security.
