Data is an asset. Over the years spent in gaming, entertainment, and sports, I have learned the incredible value that wisely managed, and properly utilized data can offer. Data has proven its power in traditional sports but I believe it can exceed these results in competitive gaming. The variety of touchpoints digital entertainment offers creates a massive opportunity, but not without its own challenges to overcome.- The GRID Data Platform is the only solution I have seen thus far that provides the necessary tools to seamlessly integrate, and what’s even more important to operate at scale. It is clearly visible that it has been created for the gaming industry. – says, J Moses. Currently, I focus predominantly on the confluence of games, sports, entertainment, and technology – GRID is a perfect partner to build an exciting future on the intersection of all of them. – Moses adds.
