SAN FRANCISCO, CA, April 1, 2014 -- SQLstream Inc., the Big Data Stream Processors company, today announced that The Workshop has selected SQLstream for real-time gaming analytics. The Workshop, a leading US gaming studio and creator of the internationally acclaimed game Sorcery, selected SQLstream to improve game performance and monetization by delivering real-time, actionable intelligence from live streams of game events and platform performance log data.

SQLstream was chosen for its capacity to capture, analyze and visualize in real-time the high volume of unstructured event data generated by server logs, game events and player activity logs.

“SQLstream will enable us to measure and understand how players are interacting with our games in real-time and to respond quickly to their needs,” said Charles Tolman, CTO of The Workshop. “SQLstream gives us the real-time processing power required, plus the flexibility to deploy new and sophisticated game analytics quickly.”

Analytics platforms in the gaming industry have not kept pace with data volumes and the increasing requirement for real-time optimization of player experience and platform monetization. Analytics tools based on relational database technology remain widespread. The increasing adoption of Hadoop and Big Data NoSQL platforms has helped with capturing and analyzing unstructured data; however, neither RDBMS or Hadoop storage platforms can process high-volume data streams while meeting the low-latency requirements and sophistication of analytics needed to power today’s games. Real-time gaming analytics for modern gaming platforms requires a stream processor.
