A Word from Our Sponsor: DIVE


Enterprise-Grade BI-as-a-Service Solution.

Dive is the only tailor-made, cross-platform, BI-as-a-Service provider for gaming studios. Dive’s outsourced data service and tools replace the need for a full in-house team, saving studios hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. 

Dive was founded by Elad Levy — an industry veteran, investor, and advisor who sold his previous gaming company to Playtika and scaled it to a $1 billion valuation using the power of data. Dive manages over 60 million MAU of data from game studios, handling everything from the technical aspects of data to the analysis:

  • Designing, creating, and maintaining a Data Warehouse per studio
  • Data ingestion from different sources (client, s2s, marketing networks, attribution providers, etc.)
  • Normalizing, processing, and validating the data
  • Visualization: creating easy-to-follow dashboards and ad hoc analysis
  • Segmentation of data for easy-to-use Live Ops events

We help analyze anything from game economy balance, retention, progression, ROAS, and other business KPIs to more complex analysis and prediction models. And we’ve built an enterprise-level Live Ops tool that enables our partners to take action on that data.
