The gaming industry has always been a highly lucrative and adored field. According to online gaming industry statistics, it is projected to surpass $33.77 billion by 2026. However, a downside emerges when governments impose substantial taxes on the income generated from gaming.

It’s happening now.

The Indian government has decided to impose a 28% tax on online gaming, which may lead to a funding shortage and a decrease in investor confidence. Undoubtedly, many gaming companies will look for new strategies to save costs.

Business monitoring is a powerful strategy that reduces costs, maintains performance, and enhances user experience.

Let’s explore the power of business monitoring, its benefits for the gaming industry, and Anodot’s prominent role in this service.

Optimizing Performance

Keeping a close eye on and quickly resolving anomalies is important for top-notch performance in the gaming industry.
