Why Real-time Analytics in Gaming Is Hard

How Rockset Makes It Easy

Other
Need to join multiple types of gaming data: Games store player profiles, scores, player actions and current game status in different systems. But you can't analyze these data sets together without a lot of data processing work.
Check
Join data across multiple sources: Join data from different collections and data sources effortlessly. Build more engaging features and customization that rely on multiple types of game data.
Other
No visibility into what players are doing currently: You can't tell what users are doing in real time because user activity streams are sent to data lakes or moved through data pipelines before being analyzed.
Check
Act on player activity in real time: Rockset ingests data continuously and makes it immediately queryable without any data prep. Elevate user engagement with real-time, adaptive game features.
Other
Can't scale to handle user growth: Query performance suffers as you add more users and accumulate more data, making it challenging to build features that depend on real-time analytics.
Check
Fast queries at scale: Rockset is optimized to serve low-latency queries at high concurrency. Delight users with snappy, responsive user experiences even as the number of users scales.
