Cloud-based gaming platform Playkey continues global expansion following launch in Germany

March 2018 – Cloud-based gaming platform Playkey is continuing its international assault on the cloud-gaming eco-system, as the platform has today launched in Germany. Revolutionising the way in which millions of gamers can access top-rated triple-A games, Playkey is continuing to position itself as a global leader within the cloud-gaming sphere.

Using cloud and streaming technology to aid users of less-powerful PCs and Macs to run demanding computer games without the need to acquire high-end and top-quality hardware, Playkey has already successfully established itself in the UK, Russia and CIS.

Launching in Germany with the support of the European solution provider G-Core Labs – known for its CDN partnership with game publisher Wargaming – and DARZ GmbH, one of the largest German IT providers, Playkey uses powerful remote servers, which are based on NVIDIA Tesla graphics cards to deliver a video-stream of the highest quality.

Egor Gurjev, CEO and Founder at Playkey said “We are incredibly excited to be growing our cloud-gaming offering and launching in Germany. We plan to invest heavily behind this expansion and will be bringing in a local country manager to develop this project further. We’re passionate about providing gamers access to the games they love, regardless of the hardware they own, and so this is a very exciting step for us in our mission to establish Playkey worldwide.”

Working directly with game publishers and with an extensive back-catalogue of games on offer, users will have easy access to top-rated games including Mafia III, The Witcher 3, Fallout 4, Dishonored series, Overwatch and more.

The German launch follows Playkey’s recent announcement of expansion in to South Korea, and news of a successful ICO, in which the cloud-based gaming platform raised more than $10.5 million to develop a decentralised P2P ecosystem, increasing its presence in the gaming market.

Finnair goes live with Workday

Finnair goes live with Workday to strengthen its employee experience as it grows
Finnair, the international network airline that specialises in flying between Europe and Asia along the shorter Northern route, has gone live with Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) to improve its employee experience and bring efficiencies to the HR function.

Over nine decades, Finnair has grown from a small Finnish airline to an international airline focused on Europe-Asia traffic. Finnair is undergoing the fastest growth phase of its history. The organisation of 5,500 employees expects to recruit another 1,000 employees over the next few years and needs a strong HR system to support its ambitious plans. Recognising the importance of the employee experience as part of its strategy and growth plans, Finnair chose to partner with Workday to embark on its ‘People & Culture’ digital HR transformation journey.

Key reasons for selecting Workday included:
The look and feel of the system, which is designed for the end user, fully integrated with the Finnair internal HR portal, and encourages and enables transparency.
The engaging, consumer-grade experience ensures that staff and managers can easily access information and perform tasks on-the-go from a mobile device, which is critical with a mobile workforce, many of whom work on the airlines.
The ability to get faster time-to-value and easier upgrades with a cloud-based HR system.
Finnair went live in early 2017 with Workday HCM, including a rollout of Compensation, Absence, and Benefits to 5,500 employees based largely in Finland, but with staff located in over 20 countries. Adoption has been high across the business with the self-service nature and agility of the system well-received. Phase two will include Workday Talent and Advanced Compensation, and the adoption roadmap for the near future includes Workday Recruiting. Performance Management is currently going live and it is expected to drive greater uptake across the workforce in the coming months.

Comments on the News
We are a growing organisation, and a strong focus on the employee experience is key to our expansion,” said Johanna Hulkko, head of HR services, Finnair. “Working with Workday enables us to centralise many activities in one system that employees can use via self-service. Workday takes HR to the next level and will help us to support the business better.

Finnair is an extremely well-respected brand in the Nordics and across the globe. It is critical that its strong heritage is preserved as the organisation grows, and employee experience is at the heart of this,” commented Mattias Bolander, regional director, Nordics, Workday. “We are excited to be working with Finnair as it follows a path to digital transformation, underpinned by a single HCM system that empowers employees and business leaders to make better-informed decisions.”
