Faster time to market for iGaming companies

Ciklum can help you build differentiated, scalable and compliant platforms to enable the holy grail of personalised, yet responsible gaming.

The business challenges we solve

Compliance with changing regulation

With increased regulatory scrutiny and significant variances in gaming legislation across the globe, iGaming operators and suppliers face an ongoing battle to stay compliant. This is a balancing act between continuously meeting changing iGaming compliance requirements and maintaining strong product engineering discipline and speed-to-market.

Improving iGaming payment processes

Players who can’t get their funds in or out of your platform quickly and transparently will quickly switch to a rival platform where they can. Enabling fast registration with elements of automation and one-click features can solve these problems and improve the player experience.

Modernising and integrating platforms

In an industry where mergers and acquisitions are common, it’s easy to inherit a mix of legacy platforms that are hard to develop and enhance. Integration that gives operators a holistic view of all their technology is essential, including distributed cloud adoption to manage data and enable platforms to scale at speed.

Moving from monolithic applications to microservices

Monolithic systems can be time-consuming to upgrade as changes involve work taking place across the entire system. Adopting a microservice-based architecture - where code is broken down into manageable, flexible modules - gives agility to product development, while speeding-up deployment.

We combine deep sector experience with market-leading technology to create seamless digital experiences.
