Transcript & Key takeaways from the episode:


George: What is the culture of the game apps in terms of data?

Anna: Right. Well, in general, the data was always been important. I would say it's important for all games: mobile and PC. But for mobile even more so, because we are free to play, but I feel like, or free to play except premium. But I feel like recently with privacy and with the general market trends it has become more and more important. And in a sense it's I'm blessed at Hutch because we have a data culture, which is developed. But I see other companies sometimes are struggling. So it's I think it gathers more and more importance and you almost have to like have to work on ways to enforce it in a sense, right? 

So it's not my idea someone else much smarter than me told that to me, but then there's like three stages of data culture. So first you have data kind of like enforcement when you define KPIs. It will be like, this is retention, this is DAU, this is what it is, right? So you are the person who tells people how things go. It's like your one guy or lady that tells about data. And then you have a data availability stage that everyone can take a look and everyone can sort of like use their owner and use the tools, but it's still you are the one that kind of defines the KPIs. And then three, step three of data culture is when everyone is educated about what is what, everyone knows what to do, and everyone knows what to use. But I’ve never thought about it that way until that person told me that. And I feel like many companies these days are not in stage 3. And it is a problem, right? 

George: Cool. So there are three stages: define KPIs, data availability, and data culture itself. And that is the source of success for the companies. 

Anna: I think, so. Especially now.
