Sizing IT infrastructure for large sporting events that generate high volumes of bets

In 2012, I worked on a project at Ladbrokes, to keep their digital platforms operational on Grand National Day. Betting volumes on Grand National are so much larger than any other day.  

Prior to 2012, it was common for every bookmaker's website to crash under the volume of bets on Grand National day. Ladbrokes wanted their mobile and web platforms to remain operational.

"IT Planning for the Grand National" was born out of that project, documenting what we did and why, for the next year. 

We developed a fresh approach to understanding the customer journey, utilising new technology to improve resilience and clever project management techniques to bring everything together on time.  The race wasn't going to wait for us.

Technology has moved on since I wrote the book, but there are still useful ideas and principles that might help anyone who needs to resize their IT infrastructure to cope with demand.

 

ps. Ladbrokes' digital platforms did remain operational for the entire day in 2012, as we watched the competition's websites crash.
