Push Technology Launches Service API
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Now Developers can scale application services to 10’s of thousands of users in minutes

Push Technology, the pioneer and leader in real-time data streaming and messaging solutions, today announced the launch of a new Service API capability for Diffusion Cloud, Push’s Real-Time API Management Cloud Platform. The new Service API provides a REST interface for publishing and requesting data, making Diffusion available to any programming language that can make an HTTP request – there’s no longer a need to install an SDK and developers can immediately start publishing from a command line. Released with the developer in mind, Push’s Service API makes it easy to begin using real-time data across their applications.

Push’s new Service API is a fast way to create, update and remove topics in Diffusion Cloud services via simple HTTP requests. While existing client SDKs remain the preferred mechanism for high-performance integrations, with the new Service API developers can quickly interact, prototype, and extend services via Diffusion Cloud to scale to serve 10’s of thousands of users in minutes. Similarly, the Service API supports easy data ingestion from 10’s of thousands of IoT devices or sensors.

The Service API sits on top of Push’s existing Diffusion Cloud Real-Time platform, enabling developers to mix and match application and data types; publish real-time events using existing SDKs, and query from a REST client; or have thousands of IoT sensors sending updates via HTTP by using a Topic View to dynamically transform and ingest that data into a back-end service.

Sean Bowen, CEO of Push Technology, said: “Diffusion Cloud is used by customers around the world to distribute billions of real-time messages each month. As a customer centric organization focused on development teams’ challenges, we constantly review feature requests and add functionality to our platform to simplify and speed the development process.”

Bowen continued: “While we provide a wide and always expanding array of language-specific SDKs, there are always more languages for which we could develop SDKs – Python, PHP, Go… – the list continues to grow. Therefore, we made the strategic decision to support them all with the introduction of our new Service API. This is the first of many planned additions to our platform that we will be introducing over the coming months to ensure that open standards and ease-of-use always define the developer experience with Diffusion Cloud.”

Diffusion Cloud simplifies and shortens development, speeds time-to-market, and easily scales to meet customers’ business-critical application performance requirements, while providing peace of mind that their data is securely managed and efficiently delivered in real-time.

AGTech Announces Interim Results For The Six Months Ended June 30, 2020
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

AGTech Holdings Limited, a leading integrated lottery, games and entertainment technology company in China, announced the interim results for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

According to MOF figures, during the Six-Month Period, lottery market recorded sales of approximately RMB123.9 billion, a decrease of approximately 41.7% compared to the corresponding period in 2019. Other than the closure of national lottery market during Chinese Lunar New Year, the drop in sales was mainly due to the impact of Novel Coronavirus (“COVID-19”) outbreak while the business hours of lottery sales outlets were significantly reduced. Lottery sales activities have since resumed in March 2020, and the Group will continue to closely monitor the latest development and recovery post pandemic.

AGTech’s Hardware division primarily supplies the Sports Lottery and the Welfare Lottery and has hardware deployed in multiple provinces, cities, municipalities and autonomous regions across China. During the Six-Month Period under review, the Group won five lottery hardware tenders to supply lottery terminals to the SLACs in Anhui province, Shanxi province, Jilin province, Hubei province and Guizhou province of the PRC. The Group will continue to pursue tenders to supply to the lottery and other hardware market and bid for new contracts after resumption of tenders post COVID-19 delays.

Transition to new retail models presents a great opportunity for the further development of the Group’s hardware business. Many of the hardware supplies required under such new retail concept share similar technology and components that underlie the lottery hardware products supplied by the Group throughout the years. We believe our hardware division continues to be well positioned to take advantage of such opportunities in the foreseeable future.

The Group continues to operate the lottery channel on mobile Taobao and mobile Alipay to serve as a one-stop platform on lottery related information for existing and potential customers. With the recent addition of sporting content and sports intelligence services to our lottery channel, we expect to roll out further engagement features and tools to improve user experience and engagement.

From a lottery products point of view, we have identified instant scratch lottery games to be an important product initiative for the coming year, as we will be dedicating resources to open up this market within the lottery sector.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

Revenue of the Group for the Six-Month Period amounted to approximately HK$43.9 million, representing a decrease of approximately 8.0% over the corresponding period in 2019. Revenue contributions were mainly derived from lottery hardware, lottery games and systems, provision of lottery distribution and ancillary services, games and entertainment business in the PRC.
The decrease in revenue for the Six-Month Period was primarily caused by the decrease in sales of lottery hardware of approximately HK$6.6 million and decrease of approximately HK$1.0 million in revenue from games and entertainment division, partially offset by an increase of approximately HK$4.6 million from the lottery games and systems.
The decrease in revenue from hardware business was due to slower tendering processes and hardware deliveries in several provinces as compared to the corresponding period in 2019 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.The increase in revenue from the lottery games and systems was caused by the increase in sales volume from the virtual sports lottery games in the second quarter of 2020 after the reopening of PRC lottery market.
Operating loss for the Six-Month Period was approximately HK$105.6 million, representing a decrease of approximately 12.1% over the corresponding period in 2019.
