Betfair announced today that they have signed an agreement with Nexthink, who is a provider of end-user it analytics. Betfair have chosen Nexthink's V5 modular platform to monitor the performance of their European technical estate during the world cup in Brazil.
The V5 modular platform from Nexthink pro-actively monitors the IT networks and provides reports on important end-user related events, like changes in the IT infrastructure, application usage and bandwidth as well as error messages, crashes and security risks in the system. Everything is closely monitored and recorded, making it easy to locate changes and errors.
“It’s important that we have insight into what’s happening on our technical estate at any given time. Until now we’ve used a number of different solutions for monitoring different aspects of this estate, such as desktops, security, and admin rights. Nexthink enables us to consolidate all of these areas, providing us with full visibility of our infrastructure from one central location, and has already allowed us to identify and resolve performance issues.” Michael Bischoff, CIO at Betfair said.
“We need to make sure that every element of our technical estate is match fit, and the end-user perspective that Nexthink offers of our entire IT infrastructure will help us achieve this goal.” He added.
“We are pleased to welcome Betfair as our customer,” said Tim Pollard, vice president Europe at Nexthink. “Betfair’s Exchange processes more than seven million transactions a day, and with 99.9 per cent of these being completed in under a second, our end-user analytics will provide the visibility and intelligence crucial in ensuring that the company’s IT infrastructure performs at maximum efficiency.”
