National lottery organization slashes application data provisioning and deployment times from days to minutes using Actifio

BOSTON, MA – October 24, 2017 — / — Actifio, the Enterprise Data-as- a-Service (EDaaS) company, today announced that Lotto New Zealand (NZ), the country’s national lottery, is using the Actifio platform to improve the resiliency and availability of its business data, and to help it build higher quality applications faster in order to maximize opportunities for its 600,000 daily users.

Lotto NZ is the single government sponsored lottery in New Zealand. It was established as a Crown Entity in 1987 to raise money for community  activities and projects. With seven products in its current portfolio, Lotto NZ manages $1 billion in annual transactions and last year transferred $204 million to the NZ Lottery Grants Board to help bring positive change to New Zealand communities.

The Lotto NZ had plans to increase online gaming through mobile applications that enabled in-app wagers. However, their application development processes were not ready for the mobile challenge.  Existing infrastructure was complex and systems were too slow. They needed to transform to an agile DevOps enterprise. They needed simple, cost effective, and fast. Implementing Actifio enabled them to address all of these pain points, and tap into the power of their data with new advanced possibilities.

The Lotto New Zealand team has created a new, fully automated DevOps stack built from scratch. Servers are deployed in minutes. Changes can be easily made, and problems caught sooner. The time and efficiency benefits they have realized can be measured through the $700K annual savings they return for doing good in the community.

“Deploying Actifio has helped us finally address streamlining requirements, budget constraints that we constantly deal with, and speed demands all on one agile platform,” said Brett Cross, Chief Technologist of Lotto New Zealand. “After seeing the results we have achieved, my advice to others is to dedicate a deployment team and get the functionality and flexibility benefits of Actifio’s data management and DevOps solutions sooner.”

“Actifio eliminates the complex backend process that caused painfully slow delays in development, testing, and database recovery by bringing the game changing power of DevOps to provide fast, elegant, integrated system that reduce expenses and improved application quality,” said Ash Ashutosh, founder and CEO of Actifio. “Now, Lotto NZ can invest more funding that helps thousands of community groups support the arts, sport, culture and heritage, and many more regional and national initiatives.”
