Game Publishing Solutions
While new games are rapidly being created and existing games are constantly being updated, the back-end for moving and transforming gaming files is more critical than ever before to keep pace. Signiant helps some of the world’s largest game publishers support the needs of their globally dispersed development teams to get new titles to enhance collaboration and get new titles to market faster.
The Need for Speed…and Security
Solutions such as FTP may have worked in the past, these days the need for secure, accelerated file movement over the WAN is critical. You need an automated solution that is going to guarantee the delivery of your files and an email notification upon receipt in order to meet your business demands. If you have an end-to-end solution in place, your IT department will spend a lot less time on support calls tracking files.
