Supercell adopts Vertica Analytics Platform


Objective: Adopt real-time gaming data analytics platform

Approach:  Evaluate data analytics solutions, conduct a successful Proof of Concept, and implement Vertica

IT Matters:

  • Queries reduced from two to four hours to minutes or seconds
  • Solution successfully met cloud deployment requirement
  • Expanded data capacity from a few months to whole lifetime of data

Business Matters:

  • Analytics improved customer service by augmenting player support

Vertica has helped us in a way our previous data analysis tools did not allow. In the past, we might wait an hour, maybe it would crash, maybe not. With Vertica, we do a query and what took hours is now completed in minutes or even seconds.
