Game Live Operations

Infrastructure to operate a live game that keeps players engaged and growing.

Keep players engaged

Build with a managed backend
Integrate with a fully managed backend service built on AWS that makes it easy to build, optimize, and scale game backend features, reducing time to market. When your game hits it big, AWS can scale to meet the volume and velocity of the data generated—all while paying only for what you need.
Understand your players
Understand, grow, and retain players by making better design decisions with LiveOps and Game Analytics solutions. Track player and game data and optimize marketing campaigns based on data-driven analysis to maximize cost and success.
Extend player lifetime value (LTV)
Extend the life of your game and keep innovating with content that keeps players engaged and growing. Experiment often and learn fast if a game idea doesn’t work, and keep players coming back for more with continuous updates and fresh content.
