Chartboost Partners with Chukong Technologies to Expand Their Global Footprint and Level up the Mobile Game Market

Chartboost, the largest revenue platform for mobile games, and international mobile games company Chukong Technologies today announced a strategic partnership to bring Chartboost’s powerful monetization and advertising technology to the Chinese mobile market. As one of China’s largest mobile entertainment companies, Chukong will provide the local expertise necessary to share Chartboost’s technology with the local developer community. The partnership will empower developers to find new players and monetize their games through higher retention, increased advertising revenue and greater transparency and control of their campaigns.

“After using Chartboost’s analytics for our titles launched in North America, we believe their technology is just what Chinese developers need,” said Lei Zhang, US general manager of Chukong Technologies. “The combination of Chartboost’s tools and our local market expertise will provide a premier monetization solution for the millions of China-based app developers.”

China is the world’s fastest growing mobile market, and is expected to be worth more than $3 billion by the end of 2014. In contrast to western markets where the Apple App Store and Google Play Store are the dominant platforms, the Chinese mobile market has more than 200 different app stores for developers to publish. In such a fragmented market, there is a pressing need for high-quality discovery and monetization services like those that Chartboost provides.

“There are enormous opportunities in emerging mobile markets, and this partnership is the first step in a larger global strategy for Chartboost,” said Maria Alegre, CEO and Co-Founder of Chartboost. “Working together with Chukong, we can empower Chinese app developers to get the exposure and data they need in the fastest-growing mobile market in the world.”

Chartboost recently launched the Chinese language version of their website to reinforce their broader localization strategy and dedication to the market. They will be releasing more localized features in the coming months to ensure Chinese game developers are able use Chartboost’s technology more easily and seamlessly.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
