Data Collection Tools for Events Analytics

One of the first things we do after launching a website nowadays is connect to Google Analytics. A little bit down the road we’ll connect more “out-of-box” analytics tools to calculate funnels, retention, A/B tests, and more.

These tools are great and work fine until a company gets bigger and analytics requirements get more sophisticated. It’s time to set up a data infrastructure, which means selecting a data collection tool, ETL tool, data warehouse, and BI tool on top of…

With the rise of Big Data has come the accompanying explosion in roles that in some way involve data.

Volume:  You have too much data

Velocity: It is coming at you too fast

Variety: It is coming at you from too many places/silos
