Data challenges in the games industry

When a company decides to create a game it goes to many different people. From designers to editors. Many situations are thought so the players can be challenged and also have a very fun experience on their computers, smartphones and consoles. Some of these games go further in the experience and allows gamers to play online or let them use some extra contents. But what happens when it does not go as it was planned by the company?

Mobile games, those you download from their mobile app stores, usually offer a free version of the games and after some levels you should, in some cases must, get a paid version to keep playing and finish the game. Companies pursuit a balance between a nice gaming experience and the chance to monetize with it. The money can come from players or advertisers in the game. But how to control it?

Problems when using different solutions

However, this big quantity of data and the velocity it comes is a challenge to traditional data warehouse and big data solutions offerings, which charges you with abusive prices every time you need more storage space, not to mention the constant need to update the solution as it gets slower.
