Katoid witl help set up a reliable data pipeline, a system to inspect this data continnously to extract meaningful patterns, and an overall process and practices for data-driven decision making, helping clients make the best decisions for their business.
Katoid is an analytics company started by 20-years videogame veterans Jon Beltran de Heredia and Raul Herrero. After seven years using all tools in the market to analyze the behavior of millions of players, and often feeling limited and frustrated, they have decided to create a new interactive analytics concept called “storyline analytics”. This design focuses not on aggregates or KPIs, but on understanding the sequences of actions players take inside a game, which provides the best insights into player motivation. To power this, they have designed and created from scratch an “organic database”, a new type of distributed data processing engine, a design inspird by biology and the structure of living beings. This design allows the maximum flexibility and scalability, and this is expected to provide great value to not only game analytics, but to many other sectors in industry and service businesses.
