    Cloud-based Solution Provides a Slam Dunk for Scalability, Functionality and Efficiency

    • Sports Alternative turned to Wovenware to help it modernize its legacy  Eventiu platform to manage rounds of tournament play. The original on-site application was unable to scale or handle the volume of activity that was required.
    • Wovenware helped Sports Alternative transition the Eventiu platform to the Microsoft Azure cloud, so it could keep pace with changing needs more quickly than ever before, ensure improved response times and easily expand the capabilities of the solution based on real-time demand.
    • To do this, Wovenware developed a custom-designed, secure web application, which featured updated open source technology and a decoupled front-end and back-end, which allows scalability and external tools integration. In addition to tracking team standings and brackets, the solution lets users schedule courts and fields to maximize recreational facilities throughout communities.
