The cloud continues to revolutionise the iGaming industry which has been booming worldwide over the past 10 years!
 
With year-on-year growth of 11.7% seeing the EU leading the wave and the US market quickly catching up, it is evident that technology has consistently been at the heart to the success of the industry enabling rapid growth and scalability to support the demand from it’s end-user base.

 

Historically well positioned for large scale exponential growth due to a largely an un-regulated industry, there are now shockwaves being sent across the globe giving a rapidly changing landscape. Following a massive boom in iGaming revenue during the pandemic, countries started enforcing stricter regulations and disrupting the existing business models of the industry.

Whilst the industry gains stability, the current status shows a turbulent future in an ever more regulated market and seeing larger organisations competing to maintain and expand their user base within their operating markets and even tougher challenges in penetrating new ones.

At Capacitas, we are on a mission to empower leaders in iGaming to stay ahead of the game and navigate the rough seas through unrivalled cloud optimisation and DevSecOps expertise.

Focusing on delivering outstanding services that revolve around DevSecOps, Cost Optimisation, Capacity Management and Performance Engineering, our objective is to ensure iGaming organisations remain competitive and operational whilst maintaining the best-in-class technology products to the end users that the industry has always been a leader in.

Performance-2

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. 

Cloud optimisation is an essential asset for gaming companies seeking to Slash Expenses, Elevate Performance, Amplify Scalability, and Fortify Security. By tuning your cloud resources, you unlock valuable assets that can be redirected towards other crucial aspects of your business, enabling you to adapt and respond to shifting demands with unrivaled agility and efficiency.
