  • 5. What is Portal Analytics? The process of Collecting, Processing, and Reporting portal usage data.
  • 6. Why do We Care About Portal Analytics? – Enables customers to provide a more personalized experience to their clients by deploying a more dynamic web solution. – Increase revenue with better targeting – Decrease cost with automatic tuning – Increase customer satisfaction, decrease infrastructure costs, and testing costs with better designs
  • 7. What Do WebSphere Portal Customers Want! • Our customers are demanding better integration. – Integration with site analyzer tools are performed by manually imbedding tags into portlets and themes or creating reports based on the portal site analyzer logs. – Request seamlessly integration within each product to enable easy site metric analysis. • Customers more willing to buy products that are tested and integrated with their web analytic infrastructures
  • 8. Agenda  Why Analytics? • What is the User Experience Optimization Initiative? • Comparing Server-side and Active Site Analytics • Overview on Server-side Site Analytics • Overview on Active Site Analytics • Coremetrics • Omniture • Webtrends • Future Outlook
  • 9. What is the User Experience Optimization Initiative? • The IBM User Experience Optimization Initiative (UEOI) teams IBM and the leaders of Web Analytic software to enable WebSphere Portal customers to easily capture and measuring the user activity so that portals can be better designed and targeted. • First step in implementing our vision to provide an improved and more personalized experience to our clients by allowing them to deploy dynamic and smarter web solutions.
  • 10. Our Partners • Vendors Chosen Based on Market Leadership and Current Customer Relationships – Coremetrics – Omniture – Webtrends • Coremetrics is an IBM Partner and has an alliance with W ebSphere Commerce • Omniture is a fast growing web analytic leader • Omniture is a leading provider of online business optimization software – Gold Sponsor of Impact 2009 – Has integrations with IBM Websphere Commerce and Portal – Global Alliance with IBM Global Business Services • W ebtrends is very established within W ebSphere Portal customers.
  • 11. Phase 1 • Show how the web analytic products already work today – Have detail solution guides available on the WebSphere Portal wiki – Also available on Coremetrics, Webtrends, or Omniture’s web site • Provide service offering if you need help • Create generic Web Analytic Reports for the Portal Site Analyzer Log – Webtrends only
  • 12. ISSL Service Offerings • ISSL has experience working with customers to define; – What to measure – How to measure it – Overall approach is necessarily agnostic to the analytics tool • Lotus/ISSL is committed to working with Omniture, Coremetrics, and Webtrends • ISSL is seeking pilot projects – Ensure that our approach will provide the maximum integration between these tools and future releases of WebSphere Portal.

  • 14. Analytics Data Collection Approaches There are two main approaches for collecting analytics data:  Server-side Site Analytics (aka logfile analysis)  User interactions and meta data is written to server logfiles hosted on the Portal Server.  Logfiles can be recorded and stored for later offline processing.  Analytics engines read these logfiles for collecting analytics data.  WebSphere Portal provides fine grained usage information.  Only hits on the Portal Server are recorded (e.g. cached page hits are not recorded)  Logfile recording is activated via configuration in WebSphere Portal.  No special coding needed for base reporting (pages, portlets,…)  Portlets can report specialized business events by calling analytics log API (since 6.1.0.1)  Active Site Analytics (aka page tagging)  Java script within the Portal page (e.g. Theme/Skin) notifies analytics server about user activity.  Analytics data is collected online within the Analytics system.  Analytics systems gather and process this data locally.  Currently (WP6.1) appropriate Java script needs to be injected manually into Portal.  The injected javascript determines which data will be recorded (requires proper planning)  Injection into Themes and Skins allows reporting of page and Portlet views.  Portlet business events are collected by adding javascript to the Portlet markup.  Any rendering of the corresponding page in the users browser can be recorded (incl. cached pages) Both approaches can be used with WebSphere Portal 6.1, either exclusively or in combination.

  • 22. Information that can be derived from the log • Browsers and Operating sysems of the users visiting the portal • Different logins corresponding to authenticated users • Robots and programmatic clients • Pages that were requested but not found • Search engines, key phrases and key words • Different operating systems as reported by the browser • The referring page a user came from • Entry and exit URLs Please keep in mind: Portal provides just the data (log file). • Many more … It is up to the analysis package (not part of the portal offering) to derive information from the data.
  • 23. Key Takeaways for Server-side Site (Logfile) Analytics • WebSphere Portal’s site analytics log provides all the necessary data for site analytics • The recorded URLs are not real, clickable URLs They still provide the relevant information to find out which pages the users of the portal looked at • We explained how portal formats the analytics log file
  • 24. Agenda  Why Analytics?  What is the User Experience Optimization Initiative?  Comparing Server-side and Active Site Analytics  Overview on Server-side Site Analytics • Overview on Active Site Analytics • Coremetrics • Omniture • Webtrends • Future Outlook
  • 25. Analytics Architecture – Active Site Analytics Covered by WebSphere Portal Script Injection PoC Online L1 L2 Http Browser Server* Portal L3 Ln Report Report Analytics Analytics Generation Software Data Not covered by WebSphere Portal Online
  • 26. General Scenario – Active Site Analytics 1. Client requests portal page 2. Portal returns page markup including metadata markup 3. Client aggregates metadata using JavaScript snippet Analytics Partner Solution 4. Client sends aggregate to analytics server (e.g. via HTTP GET) Analytics 5. Analytics server writes access log SW as.example.com 6. 3rd party analytics package analyzes log Analytics 6 5 HTTP GET /portlet?id=xyz123abc&… Aggregation Server 4 Event log 3 2 <div class=“portlet-window” id=“xyz123abc”>… Browser Portal Client Server 1 Request Page
  • 27. Future: Aggregation Script Portal Page <div class=“page-name” id=“welcome”> <div class=“portlet-window” id=“tcwtvxgl6”> <div class=“portlet-window” id=“quu3xqnbh”> Portlet Portlet </div> </div> <div class=“portlet-window” id=“mrpl1jad6”> <div class=“portlet-window” id=“pyy0wmj58”> Portlet Portlet </div> </div> <script type=quot;text/javascriptquot;> dojo.forEach(portlets, function(portlet, i, portlets) { params += … } ); body.innerHTML += quot;<img src=‘http://as.example.com/portlet?id=quot; + params +quot; />quot;; </script> </div> ** Some of the ideas presented here may be delivered in future version of WebSphere Portal, but some will not.
  • 28. What exactly is recorded? • Depends on the specific solution Typically recorded events are: • Page Display • Listing of items on the page • Download actions • Links leaving the site • Information is sent to analytics system from the browser (web bug, java script, image link,...) • Some tools cover multiple request per single page (page+portlet+content) • Information is usually dependent on specific screen being rendered.
