TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Consorteum Holdings, Inc. ("Consorteum" or the "Company") (OTCQB: CSRH), an international transaction management and mobile publishing company, today announces that its wholly owned subsidiary, ThreeFiftyNine, Inc. ("TFN"), in partnership with XpertX, Inc., has completed the development work on a new mobile results app for live Keno. With proof-of-concept now validated, this new app is designed to deliver a state-of-the-art mobile Keno solution to virtually any mobile device, regardless of operating system.
"We are very excited to join forces with XpertX, a recognized leader and innovator in Keno gaming since 1987. We believe the ability to deliver real time gaming results to Keno players will be extremely well received in every territory we introduce our application into. For the first time, a Keno player will be able to use his mobile phone and gain access to the results of Keno games played at many casinos across the United States. Mobile is clearly what the Keno customers want and the ability to view Keno results is just the first step in being able to offer a pay-for-play version of this game wherever allowed," Craig Fielding, CEO of Consorteum and president of ThreeFiftyNine, stated.
Consortium worked closely with XpertX, widely recognized as an industry leader in Keno gaming, to validate the mobile app capabilities. XpertX is also the top manufacturer and supplier of live-action Keno systems and Keno-associated products and services. Through a collaborative effort, ThreeFiftyNine and XpertX will provide integral components for the application. ThreeFiftyNine's contributions primarily involve:
- Establishment of game server and various integration functions
- Platform and technology services
- Publishing and distribution of the app
- Various support services, including database management, hosting, billing and data protection, and privacy considerations and compliance
XpertX will enable ThreeFiftyNine to utilize its proven math engine and game logic for the mobile offering, and will contribute the following:
- Back-end Keno software and platform ensuring the integrity of the database
- Backup and recovery to protect all gaming data and prevent loss of data
- Management of all regulatory approval, licensing and auditing in each territory the app is introduced into
- Knowledge of intricacies of Keno and player preferential trends
- Wide-area Keno progressive capabilities with life-changing jackpot potential
- Multiple gaming licenses
- Industry-wide name recognition in live-action Keno
- Long standing vendor relationships with major casino groups
"We are extremely optimistic to join forces with TFN bringing live Keno to mobile gaming within the limits allowed by each jurisdiction," said XpertX founder and President Eric Thomassian. "The game of Keno, by its nature, lends itself quite well to a mobile platform. This venture offers enormous potential not only for TFN and XpertX, but also for Gaming operators in terms of increased opportunities for incremental revenue through wide exposure of Keno to a new, younger audience that is solidly entrenched in mobile technology."

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
