Introducing Raw Export – A New Data Service from GameAnalytics
We’re all about the analytics (there’s a clue in our name), and using them to help you grow your games. And we’re always looking for ways to make data work even harder for you. So we’ve added a new service to our already-impressive roster – Raw Export.
Here’s how it can help you turn your data into action.
Dive even deeper
With Raw Export you can automatically export all your games’ raw event data in JSON format, without any manual intervention. So every day it’ll ingest, preprocess, and deliver player data from your GameAnalytics account straight into your AWS S3 account. It even packages it up into a neat and tidy compressed file containing unchanged raw events, all still with their properties and timestamps. No fuss, no faff.
What can I use Raw Export for?
To get really up close and personal with your data using batch or streaming processes. You can carry out custom analysis of non-aggregated data, export it into your own tools, combine it with data from other sources, implement your own data pipeline… pretty much any data-related activity you can think of (within reason, of course).
It doesn’t stop there either. You can also use custom event fields – a set of key-value pairs you can add to all your events. You can only get this through Raw Export (it isn’t available in the GameAnalytics tool). Find out more.

We’re really proud of Raw Export – and all our other products – and we love talking about them (we’re super fun at dinner parties). So if you’d like to chat to us, just fill in this form and we’ll get right back to you.
Right, I’m sold. How do I get Raw Export?
Raw Export is one of our premium services. And that means you do have to pay for it. Because our mission is to help indie developers get their first hit by giving them access-all-areas analytics, our core tool will always be free. But adding paid-for services like this one means we can grow as a business. Which gives us more cash to make our free analytics product even more kickass.
The good news is that it’s really easy to order Raw Export through your GameAnalytics account. Just log in and click on ‘Data Services’ in the left menu to get started.
