StreamBase for MMOs, MMOGs, & Social Worlds
To maintain leading-edge game experiences as well as profitability, game developers must continually meet the demand for increased functionality and generate innovative pricing models. This dynamic environment strains the systems and applications that power these new services — especially the networking, operational support and business support systems that monitor and manage player actions and help developers plan, develop, and implement game upgrades. “Pwning” can be a real threat, and can lead to functional lag times, insufficient capacity as player numbers increase and less than desired monitoring of player behavior.
Game developers continually work to improve content, functionality, and context to personalize and optimize the player experience. StreamBase’s powerful real-time Event Processing Platform, combined with StreamSQL™, empowers developers and publishers to process and analyze high-volume, real-time data. With StreamBase, developers can build and deploy real-time applications for centralized interest management, in-game metrics, policy enforcement, real money transfer (RMT), and more.
Here are some of the applications that leading game developers are building with StreamBase:
- Interest Management: In order to provide a premiere game experience, each player’s actions must be unique and self selecting. What they do, who they interact with, what they accomplish, when, and in what order, must be their choice at as fine a granularity as possible. Systems must be able to keep up with the myriad detail and crushing data deluge whether there are 50 or 50,000 simultaneous players. StreamBase can assist with load leveling to manage these wide variations from launch throughout the lifespan of the game.
- Real-Time Metrics: Monitor and manage game metrics in real time. Track each player’s movements and actions, and their interactions with others and the game environment. StreamBase can monitor for unexpected outcomes, manage or eliminate undesirable behaviors — ensuring that players always have the premium experience they expect, and can help developers understand behavior patterns and plan future enhancements.
- Managing User-Generated Content: In-game communications, avatars, and other user-generated content are a highlight of many games. But user-generated content must be closely monitored to maintain game quality. StreamBase can react in realtime, sending alerts or triggering an automatic response per developer preference.
- Web Site Monitoring: With clickstream and transaction rates soaring, a growing number of high-traffic games are seeking to monitor and react instantaneously to game generated, real-time events. StreamBase enables gaming companies to analyze and react to clickstreams in real-time. With StreamBase, gaming companies are able to better customize ad promotions and in-game transactions in real-time to fuel greater profitability.
And, with StreamBase Studio, a graphical development environment, you can get up and running in a fraction of the time and cost compared to conventional programming; and modifications can be made on-the-fly.
Join ranks today with the world’s industry leaders — from financial services to eBusinesses to intelligence and security agencies, along with leading game development companies — and leverage StreamBase’s high-performance Complex Event Processing (CEP) platform to build applications that query and analyze high-volume, real-time data streams.
