Scientific Games Corporation has partnered Google subsidiary Apigee to make integrations with third-party content and software providers more secure, reliable and efficient.

The lottery and gaming giant's SG Systems subsidiary will add Apigee's application programming interface (API) management platform to the range of casino management technology solutions it offers to gaming customers.

This will allow clients to integrate product combinations that suit their individual needs, making it easier for Scientific Games and its customers to work with external partners. All integrated software is visible via the API management platform, meaning it can be monitored alongside Scientific Games' own solutions.

"Scientific Games is committed to providing the best possible technology solutions for our customers and this agreement with Apigee, along with our newly launched Partner Program, underscores that commitment," the supplier's senior vice president of gaming systems Catherine Burns explained.

"The Apigee API platform will help us to open up the door for more flexibility in working with third-party providers, enabling smoother integration and better security between our systems' products and third-party products," she added.

Apigee was founded in 2004, offering customers its API platform for sharing enterprise data and services, as well as a range of predictive analytics solutions.

It works with the likes of streaming service Netflix, media giant Thomson Reuters and pharmacy chain Walgreens, and was acquired by Google in a $625m deal last year.

Shares in Scientific Games Corporation (Co.Data) (NYQ:SGMS) closed up 0.67 per cent at $45.00 per share in New York Monday.
