Esports Charts and Amazon Alexa
With Esports Charts' database available through the Amazon Alexa, users can ask Alexa for up-to-date esports details. This includes tournament information and real-time developments on gaming competitions around the world.
For example, users can ask about the ESL Impact League's schedule and the location of the VALORANT Champions 2023 event.
“By making our extensive esports database available through Amazon’s Alexa, we’re taking a monumental step towards making esports information more accessible than ever before,” Ihor Kryvych, the chief technology officer (CTO) of Esports Charts, said.
Kryvych added that his company's mission is to foster transparency and awareness in the industry. Working with the Amazon Alexa means allowing enthusiasts to easily inquire about upcoming tournaments while staying connected to the esports scene.
What is Esports Charts?
Esports Charts is an agency dedicated to data analytics in esports, sports, and entertainment. Its platform is a source for streaming analytics worldwide. There's also a focus on in-game events, live tournaments, the performances of players and teams, and viewership.
In an interview with esports.gg, Kryvych revealed that the idea of Esports Charts came about around 2015 and 2016. The first tournament that the platform covered was the 2016 League of Legends World Championship.
Around the same time, the founders of Esports Charts began processing viewer data for a number of esports events. This led to data comparisons and the first step in creating a minimum viable product (MVP) for the business.
"Within a short period of time, we started to analyze more and more platforms, and now there are more than 25 of them," Kryvych recalled.
That's all for now. Stay tuned on esports.gg for more news and updates!
