MICRO FOCUS VERTICA Customer Study Analytics and Big Data
“Vertica is the best analytic platform currently available in the market. It is fast and scalable, and independent from underlying infrastructure.” – Shemer Mashiach, DataInfra Solution Lead, Playtika
This is an interview based on a real-life best practice story from Playtika, a leading digital entertainment company that specializes in the development and publication of free-to-play mobile games.
To capture this story, Sivan Tziring Rosenberg, Vertica regional sales manager, interviewed Shemer Mashiach, a DataInfra Solution Lead at Playtika. Her goal was to get a sense of how Playtika’s analytic database system works, how it changed over time, and the challenges Playtika faced given the company’s exponential data growth. Sivan’s questions are followed by answers from Shemer.
