The Interactive Home Entertainment industry has a YDC Data Monetization Index (DMI) in the range of 48.15% to 99.96%. The YDC DMI is driven by an intense focus on microtransaction and advertising revenue within the industry.
A higher YDC DMI is generally preferable across companies and industries. By way of reference, internet companies have a higher YDC DMI because most of their enterprise value is derived from data. For example, Google’s DMI is 93 percent as we will discuss in a later blog.
