Partnership is key to cloud transformation, say Continent 8
Well-known provider of performance connectivity and hosting solutions, Continent 8 Technologies (stand N3-110), are showing how partnership is the key to successful market entry, technology deployment and growth.
Many operators at ICE are already working with some form of cloud services and, indeed, the benefits of cloud adoption – particularly flexibility, scalability and cost management – have been understood by many enterprises for some time.
However, in iGaming particularly, decisions, approaches and rate of adoption is often complex. There are regulatory, data sovereignty, security and scalability considerations. Of course, in an increasingly competitive market, it’s also important to keep costs under scrutiny.
Stephen Trimble, Continent 8’s Chief Product Officer, comments:
“For cloud adoption, the right formula tends to be business and situation dependent. In all cases though, IT and business leaders are benefitting from partners who can help them to work successfully under the new model, within the context of their business. A partner that understands the industry, its own challenges and which is already providing tailored solutions – which can extend to cloud – is ideal.
“Successful business transformation through the adoption of cloud and related digital services is a key growth area for us. We’re excited to be bringing together the power of our global network, cloud infrastructure and industry knowledge, alongside partnering with some of the world’s biggest names to enable and deliver bespoke cloud transformation journeys to our industry. We’re sure it will be another busy and successful year.”
They welcomed Jordan Levin, Group Chief Executive, SG Digital; John Coleman, CEO, Microgaming; Shay Segev, COO, GVC Group; Richard Carter, CEO, SBTech; and Shimon Akad, COO, Playtech, who took part in a fascinating and entertaining discussion chaired by Micky Swindale, CEO, KPMG Islands Group.
Continent 8 would like to thank the panellists and Micky for what proved to be a very popular event.

Nick Nally, recently appointed as Continent 8’s Americas region MD, located in Florida, commented:
“We will continue to work with regulators within each state, and add value by understanding their requirements and ensuring we deliver solutions to meet those requirements. We are delighted to have received regulatory approval for Continent 8’s public cloud offering to support online gaming clients within New Jersey. This enables customers to access all the benefits of cloud-based solutions whilst being located within the required geographic to meet regulatory requirements.”
Continent 8’s presence within the US sector is growing rapidly, and it’s being aided by positive feedback from many high-profile partners. For example, Nikita Pinchuk, VP Global Engineering, PointsBet, said: “We are delighted to partner with Continent 8 to support our exciting entry into the US marketplace. We have been impressed with Continent 8’s expertise of the New Jersey marketplace, and seamless integration of multi-state geographies, to support our long-term growth ambitions in the United States.”
