Apollo 24|7, PharmEasy, and the valuation game of ‘Who will blink first’

Hi Kardam, Migraine is exactly what I got when looking at the data or when Seema was looking for the numbers. I wanted to portray the complexity of the companies in my visualisation, hence the chart. I designed it like I would design a game where the reader would have to be involved in looking for data and making sense of it. I guess the idea didn't work. Thank you for your feedback. I'll make sure we do better next time. :)

Southeast Asia's oddball app behaviour

Hi Ratheejit, Happy to know that you found the post very lucid. I hope the following points help you with your queries: 1. In-app purchases would refer to revenue that flows through the app stores. It would not include other revenue generators like the official website, for example. 2. The data pertaining to Southeast Asia does not include India, primarily because the regional trends vary. Coming to your other point, we did analyse region specific trends for video app downloads and spending, but it did reveal much other than what the broad data already says, which is why we did not include it in our data visualisation.

With respect to price hikes, the numbers presented in the story are averages based on data collected by Dataweave on over 25,000 products in 30 cities across India, and at an individual level the prices for some products could be much higher.
