Omniata processes 190 billion events a month for game and app developers who need to understand their users and why they’re playing or dropping out of games. And because of that kind of reach, Omniata has been able to raise $5.2 million in funding.
The San Francisco company is coming out of stealth today to describe its business: It provides analytics and engagement platform for game companies and app makers such as Rovio, Electronic Arts, Miniclip, and Grand Cru.
The company will use the money to address the strong demand it has seen for its services during a closed-beta test. It will also accelerate its growth, pursue strategic partnerships, and grow its team. The service is still is closed beta testing.
Investors include Nordic venture capital firm Creandum, which was the first institutional investor in Spotify, and Sigma West. To date, Omniata has raised a total of $6.8 million.

“We have followed the Omniata team from the very start and are incredibly impressed with what they have achieved in a short time frame,” comments Daniel Blomquist, principal at Creandum, in a statement. “They have built an amazing product which leading mobile and digital businesses are queuing up to get access to.”
