Technology can be the knowledge of techniques, processes, and the like, or it can be embedded in machines to allow for operation without detailed knowledge of their workings. Systems applying technology by taking an input, changing it according to the system’s use, and then producing an outcome are referred to as technology systems or technological systems.
In both Gaming and Fintech industries technology is an enabler of a myriad of services without which both industries cannot survive and prosper. Technology is the backbone of every service provided, and in service-based industries where the provision of services is digital, having appropriate technology solutions is not only ideal, but is fundamental.
At IGA, we have a very strong technology background, having lead tech driven projects and developed bespoke solutions for gaming companies and other technology-based companies. Our experience encompasses all technology verticals, and we can develop, assist or advise depending on the need of our clients.
When opting for a Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) licence, or any other licence within the EU, requirements are somewhat similar. Practically all countries impose a minimum amount of data which must be safely secured in a certified data centre located in the jurisdiction where the licence was issued from. Such data requirement would vary from one jurisdiction to the other, but the technology needed is the same.
Nowadays storing data on cloud has become the norm, but even this requires proper assessment and a thorough understanding of the services being provided; but for companies opting for cloud, replicating critical regulatory data in the country where licence is issued becomes mandatory. Opting for the right data centre and ensuring the right services are in place is key to ensuring a secure back up. Data stored in the local data centre, whether its replicated data or a complete set up, often requires confirmation and direct access from regulators who would need to ensure data is properly secured and available 24/7.
Running a gaming operation requires servers for hosting web servers, application servers, database servers, network storage and other components related to security. As stated earlier some data considered critical by the regulators must be hosted on servers located in Malta and properly set up in a data centre. This said some other servers are needed at the company offices in order to ensure a proper operation.
Choosing the right equipment, procuring it at the best price and ensuring appropriate installation are surely areas where IGA Group can excel. Get in touch for more information on how we can be of assistance to your business, whether you are a start-up or an established company.
