Hyper Hippo Productions Gains Deeper Insights Into Player Profiles
Hyper Hippo, published by Screenzilla Entertainment, finds new players more quickly and at a lower cost, and optimizes player experience with Decisive Data, Microsoft and Fivetran.

Data Stack

Hyper Hippo Productions, published by Screenzilla Entertainment, creates games for players of all ages. Using PlayFab, a backend platform for live games from Microsoft Azure, for its live ops engine, Hyper Hippo tracks billions of events per month. The business wanted to combine that data with data from its marketing, CRM and social sources to gain a more holistic view of its players and to target the correct audience for its games.

Working with DecisiveData and Fivetran, Hyper Hippo is able to load all of its data into Azure Data Explorer, a fast and highly scalable Microsoft data analytics service. With Fivetran refreshing the data incrementally, the business maintains near real-time data sets within PlayFab insights. Using Azure Data Explorer and PowerBI, Hyper Hippo has created helpful dashboards, gained deeper insights into its audience, and democratized access to data. The business can find new players more quickly and at a lower cost, and better optimize the individual player experience.
