Riot Games’ goal is to be the world’s most player-focused gaming company in the world. Founded in 2006, and based in LA, Riot Games is best known for the League of Legends game. Over 100 million gamers play every month.
Improving gaming experience through:
• Network performance monitoring

• Data Ingest and ETL

Databricks allows Riot Games to improve the gaming experience of their players by providing scalable, fast analytics:
We use Apache Spark™ and Databricks to augment our data analytics and data science programs. Specifically, we highlight how Spark has significantly decreased SQL query times when reading from our large HIVE data stores, providing a massively popular recommender system for our players, and using Spark streaming to monitor the internet and alert when players experience a poor network connection.
