  5. 5. Something More Robust • Mixpanel/KISSmetrics • +/- Each have their pros and cons - suck ‘em and see o http://sachagreif.com/analytics-showdown-kissmetrics-vs-mixpanel/ o http://founders.getbrandid.com/mixpanel-vs-kissmetrics-part-1-installation • + Easy to set up • + Good reporting toolset o e.g. funnels, segmentation, cohort/retention • - Expect to pay when you start using it in anger • - Difficult to combine with other data sources • - KISSmetrics don’t yet have a (usable) data export API Collection Metrics - Rob Hudson,Tools of the Trade Startup and Communication of Data: Geckoboard. 5Tuesday, 29 January 13
  6. 6. Something More Flexible • OK, one more data warehouse • + Combine internal data from several sources o Different granularity o Different periodicity • + Pre-aggregate metrics for easy digestion • + Snapshots - a time machine for your data • + Dimensionally modeled (star-schemas) for ease of ad- hoc reporting • - ETL overhead • - Need SQL knowledge Collection Metrics - Rob Hudson,Tools of the Trade Startup and Communication of Data: Geckoboard. 6Tuesday, 29 January 13
  7. 7. Something For The Engineers • StatsD o Listens for messages on a UDP port o Pulls out the data o Flushes to Graphite o https://github.com/etsy/statsd/ • Graphite o Powerful graphing (time series) engine o http://graphite.wikidot.com/ • http://codeascraft.etsy.com/2011/02/15/measure-anything-measure- everything/ Collection Metrics - Rob Hudson,Tools of the Trade Startup and Communication of Data: Geckoboard. 7Tuesday, 29 January 13
  8. 8. Something For The Analysts • Cloud Based BI • + Combine data from multiple sources o Internal & external • + Great for deep diving o “Unknown unknowns” • - Setup and configuration is non-trivial • - Be prepared to pay Collection Metrics - Rob Hudson,Tools of the Trade Startup and Communication of Data: Geckoboard. 8Tuesday, 29 January 13

  10. 10. How We Do It • GA & GoSquared for web analytics • Mixpanel for event tracking • Data warehouse fed from a daily build of 2 internal databases • Custom reporting tool (customer CHI etc) • Excel • Geckoboard for communication Collection Metrics - Rob Hudson,Tools of the Trade Startup and Communication of Data: Geckoboard. 10Tuesday, 29 January 13
