LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- July 1, 2014

Nexthink®, the unique provider of End-user IT Analytics, today announces that
online betting and gaming operator Betfair selected its V5 modular platform to
monitor the performance of its European technical estate during the World Cup.

Nexthink V5 pro-actively monitors IT networks and reports on important
end-user related events, such as changes in the IT infrastructure, application
usage and bandwidth, error messages and crashes, as well as potential security
risks, ensuring that the performance of IT services is recorded and uniquely
visualised from the all-important perspective of the end-user.

Michael Bischoff, CIO at Betfair, said of the deployment, “It’s important that
we have insight into what’s happening on our technical estate at any given
time. Until now we’ve used a number of different solutions for monitoring
different aspects of this estate, such as desktops, security, and admin
rights. Nexthink enables us to consolidate all of these areas, providing us
with full visibility of our infrastructure from one central location, and has
already allowed us to identify and resolve performance issues.”

Founded in 1999, Betfair pioneered the first successful Betting Exchange and
today provides a full range of online sports betting and gaming products to
over 950,000 customers.

Bischoff adds, “We need to make sure that every element of our technical
estate is match fit, and the end-user perspective that Nexthink offers of our
entire IT infrastructure will help us achieve this goal.”

“We are pleased to welcome Betfair as our customer,” said Tim Pollard, vice
president Europe at Nexthink. “Betfair’s Exchange processes more than seven
million transactions a day, and with 99.9 per cent of these being completed in
under a second, our end-user analytics will provide the visibility and
intelligence crucial in ensuring that the company’s IT infrastructure performs
at maximum efficiency.”
