A sportsbook is a database for sports results and betting options involving various games that users can choose from. It pulls all the information from a number of data feeds, which are often external and need to be integrated separately. It is important to be able to manage this process correctly without compromising on product performance.
Degree 53 utilised a large number of complex data feeds for internal and external sources to be included in the Betfred Sportsbook. Developers went through a data feed integration process to be able to display different sports results. To optimise product performance, they carried out analysis and testing to ensure that only the required data was shown. A bespoke system was built to manage and process that information, which reduces the risk of overloading the app.
Throughout development, the product was under constant review from both Degree 53 Quality Assurance teams and the client. This allowed them to identify further areas for improvement and provide the client with confidence that the Sportsbook fully met performance, load and usability requirements.
