A solopreneur could easily use Alexa to start a business with low start-up cost and high ROI since Amazon has an enormous customer base. The person could conveniently find their group of customers that would be in need of their service. Technology students who want to excel in building phone application, Alexa would be a good practice.

This software can be installed manually or via a third party installer. Those less happy with coding may prefer to check availability of Piwik via the web host before choosing it as a preferred option. That aside, the important issue when choosing any analytics package is whether it tracks the range of data that you need. Piwik is very rich in this respect.

Pros

Alexa

  • It is easy to navigate through Amazon Developer
  • Even for a non coder, it is very thorough and easy to go through setting up steps
  • Testing for Alexa is also awesome since you can use simulated websites for it instead of buying the actual device

  • One of Piwik's strengths is the provision of customizable widgets for different bits of analytics data. The ability to add and remove them, change dates and more makes this a flexible way to visualize data.
  • The visitor log section is also rich, providing date, keywords, actions and more in a single table, which makes it easy to identify your most effective content.
  • And the visitor actions table includes both bounce rate and time on site, so you can quickly tell which pages have the most engagement.
  • Data display is a strength for Piwik, as you have access to overview charts while simultaneously being able to drill deeper.

  • My impression is that you can do more with goals in other analytics packages, though the basic functionality works well in Piwik.
  • The WordPress integration can be buggy. Though it worked well most of the time, in one case I had to remove the Piwik code to fix a site error.

I am hopeful that after our beta test internally that we will roll Piwik out on a wider range. I feel that it has given us the necessary tools and flexibility with regards to customer performance, reporting, adaptability and security. It also helps that we can host this platform completely in-house without any additional costs outside of the hardware.

Piwik succeeds in presenting me (and my associates and my clients...) large amounts of data in a user friendly way. The interface and functionality can easily be customized. While some enhancements do need technical background (API calls by programming language from the webserver or javascript), others are easy to use (goal / event tracking)

Only one hiccup when we were using a beta installation. Other than that, smooth sailing.

The customizable dashboard is useful so we can create different environments for employees. We have some data stewards who need to see all the data, but others only need to see certain widgets.
