Softonic Developer Center Analytics(Link)

Statistics have always been a key point to ensure the success of a project. With the launch of the new analytics dashboard inside Softonic's Developer Center, developers are now able to check the statistics of their apps with a great level of detail.

A huge amount of data is processed daily to offer answers to the developers to questions like: How are my downloads evolving over time on Softonic Germany from mobile devices? Which are the countries with more downloads for the last quarter? How is my downloads performing versus my competitors? Which are my main competitors to be the most sucessful software on my market sector? How is my software performing on Softonic's apps ranking? What features am I offering versus my competitors?

All this is accomplished thanks to the power of the new Big Data technologies such as Hadoop, Hive, Oozie or Impala.
