New Partnership and a Delivery Center in the Heart of Krakow
Over the years, the advancements in technology have changed the digital gaming, lottery and sports industries countless times. But, the birth of the Internet and online play have made the most significant transformations. Additionally, the major improvements of graphics, use of portable devices, and cloud-based technologies have further changed the way games are envisioned, created and played. Over time, the new opportunities have enabled the online gaming and betting industries to evolve, expand to new markets, and mark continuous growth in profits.
However, in order to use the potential of these new opportunities, gaming and betting companies need additional technological expertise in the development, deployment, and maintenance of the new gaming platforms. In recent years, it has become a common practice for many gaming and betting companies to collaborate with IT companies that already have the necessary know-how.
A Vision of Innovation and Excellence
One big company that has made a significant mark in the digital gaming, lottery and sports industry by adopting the latest trends and continuously bringing innovation and excellence to gaming software is Scientific Games Corporation. The company was founded over 85 years ago and is a global leader in the gaming and lottery industries across the world. Through their three divisions, Scientific Games offers customers a fully integrated selection of technology platforms and robust systems, numerous games and highly professional services and marketing solutions.
Soon after the acquisition of NYX Gaming Group, Scientific Games unveiled the new division, Scientific Games Digital, which integrates the existing portfolio of SG Interactive B2B products and services with those of the NYX Gaming Group. Their goals is to make SG Digital the most diverse supplier of digital gaming and sports betting technology and content in the industry.
This undertaking means SG Digital will now be offering a significantly larger portfolio of products and services, which means they will need additional help and support to sustain and grow the business, all the while increasing productivity and improving efficiency.
The search for a reliable partner who will bring experience and expertise to this venture led SG Digital to us, Symphony Solutions. Due to our complete Agile-mindset, unique approach to software development, and extensive experience with designing and developing software for the gaming and gambling industry, SG Digital realized that Symphony Solutions is the company to entrust their software development processes to, and work side by side with our expert teams.
After long negotiations and meticulous planning, we are delighted to announce that at the end of November 2017, Symphony Solutions signed an official contract with Scientific Games Digital. As a result of the newly formed partnership, our new delivery center in Krakow, one of the leading IT centers in Europe, was opened.
This new offshore development center is planned to house 250-300 of the best and brightest talents in Krakow, help SG Digital accelerate growth and drive innovation in product development across the group as it works alongside SG Digital’s other product development centers in Europe, located in London, Athens, and Stockholm.
“The Krakow opening will be our fourth centre in Europe as we accelerate our growth, underpinned by our product-led strategy. The advanced hubs are staffed by leaders in their fields and provide the platform to ensure that SG Digital remains at the forefront of technology in the digital gaming, lottery, and sports industry,” said Matt Davey, Group Chief Executive, Digital.
“Opening the new Krakow centre underlines our commitment to continuously boost our best-in-class offering. This location will be directly aligned with our other European technology hubs and form a great asset for the SG Digital business unit,” said Chris Armes, Chief Technology Officer, at SG Digital. “Poland has a fantastic reputation when it comes to tech personnel. From experience, we know there is a well-trained, high-energy talent pool of people that have extensive industry and domain expertise.”
