Google Play Console offers valuable app data, including user acquisition results, user feedback, and financial and release reports. But, once the app is launched in multiple countries, app data collected based on the user’s geography creates data silos. Now, to get a 360-degree view, organizations need to consolidate all this data.

Likewise, the best practice for better analysis is to combine Google Play Console data with the data generated from business applications — such as customer support, inventory management, payment gateways, and CRM platforms — into a data repository like Databricks.

This blog post will help you replicate data from Google Play Console to Databricks quickly and efficiently. Replicating your Google Play Console data with Databricks will allow you to break through data silos and create a 360-degree view.

In addition, organizations can use BI and analytics technology to generate data visualizations and dashboards to communicate valuable insights from your data. This step makes reporting and analysis easy and inexpensive.
