"I’m tremendously excited to be working with GamesAnalytics. The company provides a big win-win solution for both game players and game publishers. Any game publisher serious about competing in the industry today must be able to rapidly analyse and understand its players’ behaviour and swiftly react to their needs. GamesAnalytics allows developers and publishers to quickly and easily unlock the true value of player data and maximise revenue. Our state-of-the-art turnkey real-time behavioural analytics and individually targeted in-game marketing increase online game revenue by substantially improving player satisfaction, as well as the number of paying players and average revenue per player."

Chris Wright, GamesAnalytics CEO said:

"Alan is a great addition to the team. His decades of experience in the games industry are incredibly valuable to us in our work for leading online game publishers. Alan understands the great value that our products can add by data mining the massive amounts of player information stored by online game publishers, especially in free-to-play Facebook games, MMO’s and virtual worlds that generate revenue from the purchase of virtual goods."

Alan Miller is one of the entertainment software industry’s most experienced executives with over 30 years experience developing, marketing and distributing interactive games. In 1979, he co-founded Activision, the first independent video game publisher, and served as VP Product Development.
