Golden Matrix Group Expands Its Game Content With the Addition of 32 Unique Games; Company Also Adds 36 New Gaming Operators

LAS VEGAS, NV , Sept. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE - Golden Matrix Group Inc. (OTCPK: GMGI), a technology-driven company that designs and develops social gaming platforms, today announced it has expanded its game content with the addition of a Gaming Master Portfolio (GMP) of 32 unique games on popular themes, including Chinese legends. Developed through exclusive distribution agreements with four gaming content providers, GMP is already featured on GMGI’s state-of-the-art GM-X platform, thereby making it available to all gaming operator clients and, in turn, to over one million active players within their networks.

The 32 new offerings can be viewed and played at

Golden Matrix also said it had added 36 new gaming operators in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region during the months of August and September, bringing the total number of active operators being serviced by GMGI to 148. This recent increase was fueled by the successful efforts of Red Label Technology Pte. LTD. (RedLabelTech), which on July 30, 2018 became GMGI’s second distributor in the region.

“Obviously, an expanding portfolio of very popular games is key not only for attracting new gaming operators, but also for retaining the valuable loyalty and participation of our current client base,” said Golden Matrix CEO Anthony Goodman. “Making GMP’s exciting new games available to our growing number of gaming operator clients is a significant development that will contribute to GMGI’s rapid growth and improved financial results. We believe GMGI’s superior content and technology platform, along with our strong distribution channels, will continue to engage new operators monthly.”

Mr. Goodman noted that revenue generated from GMP’s 32 exclusive games will be shared with their respective content providers and provide GMGI with improved margins and profits over what it normally derives from any one of its current third-party licensed games. Golden Matrix will also derive greater financial benefit from revenue generated by GM Slots, the company’s own portfolio of four proprietary games launched in early August. GM Slots is scheduled to expand over the coming months as it goes live with additional proprietary games currently under development.

“We are confident that GMGI’s ongoing success is being secured by our ability to provide an evolving, content-rich, dynamic gaming platform that appeals to the widest possible range of users,” concluded Mr. Goodman.

Hitachi Vantara Expands Smart Data Center Intelligence and Automation for Self-Optimizing Data Centers

New Partnership with Vigilent Adds AI-Driven Cooling; Intelligent SAN Optimization, and Automated Provisioning Lower Data Center Costs

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501), today at NEXT 2018 announced enhancements to its Smart Data Center solution that elevate the use of AI and real-time analytics to further its vision of optimizing all aspects of IT operations across data centers. These enhancements help enterprises deliver business outcomes by maximizing the power of data no matter where it resides – from the data center to the cloud and out to the edge – and move them forward in today’s digital, data-driven business landscape.

Smart Data Center is a complete end-to-end subscription service that is pre-engineered to maximize speed of delivery yet flexible enough to adapt to each organization’s data center requirements. It is designed to optimize global data center service health, capacity management, performance management and cooling. By advancing the use of automation, machine learning and artificial intelligence, the Smart Data Center solution creates self-optimizing data centers that lower IT operational costs, reduce risk and increase IT agility to respond to business change.

The latest enhancements advance Smart Data Center beyond the initial focus on intelligent management of compute and storage resources into facilities infrastructure with continuous optimization using AI-Driven Cooling, intelligent SAN optimization and automated provisioning of heterogeneous storage.

Optimization with AI-Driven Cooling
Hitachi Vantara is partnering with Vigilent, the leading provider of dynamic cooling management systems, to help deliver the Smart Data Center cooling optimization module. Vigilent technology uses machine learning, IoT temperature sensors, and closed-loop control to enable Smart Data Center to proactively monitor and analyze data center cooling, self-correct temperature and airflow issues, and provide IT administrators with improved operational control.

This partnership enables Smart Data Center to provide:

  • Up to 38 percent average annual savings;
  • Increased data center capacity by ensuring cooling equipment is performing at maximum capacity, allowing facilities to increase the load on existing infrastructure;
  • Improved data center thermal reliability by eliminating most data center hot spots and enabling dynamic cooling that automatically responds to any changes in the data center;
  • Enhanced data center management control with the ability to specify the exact maximum air temperature delivered to each rack in the data center;
  • Increased IT management insight based on advanced analytics that easily identify where there is sufficient or insufficient thermal redundancy as well as which cooling equipment needs maintenance.

“Cooling can create significant business risk. It also is an area that is ripe for operational and efficiency improvements,” said Dave Hudson, chief executive officer at Vigilent. “The Smart Data Center cooling optimization module automatically manages thermal stability, reduces energy and other operational costs and unlocks stranded IT capacity. We are excited to be working with a global industry leader such as Hitachi Vantara to further strengthen Smart Data Center with our dynamic cooling management technology.”

Intelligent SAN Optimization 

Smart Data Center from Hitachi Vantara can lower storage costs with real-time, continuous optimization of SAN resources that enables efficient and cost-effective use of storage assets. It also identifies when hot and cold spots are developing within Hitachi storage to help ensure efficient utilization of storage assets and placement of storage in appropriate tiers based on costs and defined service performance requirements.

Smart Data Center gives IT managers the insights they need to make informed operational and budgeting decisions through advanced predictive analytics and dynamic dashboards that provide a visual mapping of application storage on a cost and performance basis. Machine learning-driven predictive and prescriptive insights help customers identify opportunities and recommendations for optimization. It also provides the ability to perform AI-based simulations that allow customers to evaluate future scenarios before Smart Data Center takes action on their behalf.

Smart Provisioning

Smart Data Center now includes automated provisioning of heterogeneous storage assets, covering end-to-end processes from planning to execution. It provides the ability to orchestrate IT provisioning tasks in an automated fashion through analytics-based capacity and performance insights, along with machine learning-driven recommendations that are integrated with ITSM applications. Customers benefit from time savings by eliminating the need to make many manual changes in the data center, reduced data center and IT services downtime, and improved operational and regulatory compliance with the ability to document changes. Smart provisioning capabilities also free up budget and SAN resources for allocation to other strategic projects.

“Data center customers are increasingly seeking opportunities to use artificial intelligence and advanced analytics to lower costs and deal with the growing IT complexity within and across data centers,” said Bobby Soni, chief solutions and services officer at Hitachi Vantara. “By offering higher levels of automation and optimization, the Smart Data Center from Hitachi Vantara is helping customers streamline operations and create self-optimizing data centers.” 


Smart Data Center is generally available as a fully managed, on- or off-premises solution offering. For more information, please visit

Paycor Challenges the Status Quo in Human Capital Management at TECH+ 2018 Event; Launches Enhanced Partner Loyalty Program

First National Partner Forum for Benefits Brokers and Financial Advisors Delivers on Commitment to Providing Partners with Technology + Expertise to Better Serve Their Clients

CINCINNATI, Sept. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Human Capital Management (HCM) company Paycor last week concluded its TECH+ Partner Forum, the company’s first national HCM conference for benefits brokers and financial advisors. Set at the Ritz Carlton in Amelia Island, Fla. from Sept. 19-21, the event drew more than 100 attendees to experience a series of keynotes, panel discussions and interactive breakout sessions that explored how HCM technology paired with data-driven insights enables partners to address their clients’ most critical business challenges.

TECH+ 2018 Highlights at a Glance

The Importance of Partner Support
Clients depend on benefits brokers and financial advisors for advice, solutions and guidance on every conceivable problem. Paycor's TECH program helps partners stand out from the crowd. Paycor provides technology that integrates with the platforms clients are already using in conjunction with the education that keeps partners on the cutting edge of HR and benefits trends. In addition, Paycor’s compliance expertise provides clients with peace of mind and access to a wealth of HR reporting.

Solidifying itself as a true differentiator in the market, Paycor announced its enhanced Partner Loyalty Program. Partners in this program are now able to benefit from co-branded marketing support, and will receive a dedicated Partner Relationship Manager, which provides a direct connection between partner and Paycor to answer questions regarding joint clients.

Moving Beyond HCM
Paycor also announced it is continuing to extend its technology offering by providing further access into industry leading Benefits Administration platforms through its integration partnerships. Paycor offers meaningful 360-degree integrations with select providers. With a simple and streamlined process, customers can enhance their current solutions by synching Paycor data with available partners. From there, partners can drive more distribution by establishing connectivity through Paycor’s developer portal, where they can build their own connected applications by accessing Paycor’s collection of restful APIs.

Invested in the success of both broker and client, Paycor’s integration partnerships enable higher customer retention, accelerate time-to-market and optimize outcomes.

Challenging the Status Quo
In his opening keynote address, Tim Reisterer, Chief Strategy and Research Officer of Corporate Visions, discussed the biggest threat to brokers and financial advisors – the prospect’s status quo bias; the tendency to favor a current situation over trying something new. Most importantly, Reisterer discussed the skills and messaging techniques required to tell a provocative, disruption-minded story that creates the urgency to change this line of prospect thinking. Reisterer also worked with the audience to develop a point of view that helped create clear separation from the competition.

Additional TECH+ highlights include breakout sessions on the topics of “Sales Blueprint,” a discussion on how to drive pipeline and win more business and “All Systems Go,” a demonstration as to how HCM trends can influence a client’s ability to elevate her business, and several social events that included networking, receptions, dinner, entertainment and more.

“TECH+ has exceeded my expectations,” said Joey Janssen, Senior Employee Benefits Specialist, Benefit Advisors, a leading provider for Group Insurance, Human Resource Management and Employee Engagement Programs. “The presentations and keynote speaker were fantastic, and the conference has given me the opportunity to learn from leading minds in the industry about changes in technology and what we can do to best support our clients’ business.”

“Paycor’s TECH+ Partner Forum allows our top benefits brokers and financial advisors to take some time to focus on themselves, learn new strategies from leading HR, benefits and sales experts and work on the skills needed to differentiate themselves from the competition,” said Bob Coughlin, Founder and CEO of Paycor. “We’re thrilled to provide our partners with the same caliber of information about the HCM market and the same level of support as we do our clients. We are committed to helping our partners change the way they conduct business for the better.”
