Analyzing gaming telemetry data

The gaming industry is facing disruption. Players have an unprecedented level of choice in how they spend their time and money, and new models like Free-to-Play, Pay-to-Play, Pay-to-Win, and Games as a Service are forcing gaming companies to consider new strategies for player engagement and monetization.

The good news is that gaming companies are closer to the player experience than ever, with a vast amount of player and game telemetry data from which to draw insights.

The bad news is this data is growing in terms of volume, variety, and velocity, and gaming companies need a powerful, flexible analytics solution to shape the player experience with real-time and predictive insights. This is why many gaming companies around the world choose the Vertica Unified Analytics Platform to better engage their players and monetize their games.

Gaming analytics across devices and platforms

Gamers have more options than ever for how they spend their time. Mobile, PC, and console platforms have large volumes of games from large studios and indie studios, and virtually every platform has libraries of games available for low subscription prices. Engagement and player loyalty are critical drivers of sustained success for every gaming company.

New business models

The growth of business models like Free-to-Play, Pay-to-Play, Pay-to-Win, and Games as a Service are changing the way gaming companies monetize their games. In-app purchases, including microtransactions and subscription services, are replacing flat purchases, and monetization strategies are predicated on acquiring and retaining a strong player base.

Analyzing gaming telemetry data is the solution

New methods of delivery, including cloud-based and SaaS-like hosting where players are always connected to the publisher, mean that gaming companies are closer than ever to the player experience. Gaming companies must leverage game telemetry data to understand and influence player behavior. By combining telemetry data with account and demographic data,  gaming companies gain the insights into their player base that can inform content, marketing, and monetization decisions.
