Apache Cordova

It is suitable for making portable applications, with almost the same code for several platforms. You can access native features of the device or use an open source plug-in from the repository to create a local database and access the internal storage of the device. It is wonderful for the construction of a native application, through the use of standard web code. It is not recommended for enterprise applications.

Matomo (formerly Piwik)

If you want to easily track visitor behaviour anonymously on any website, and have the possibility to enhance the data by a good API, Piwik might be just the right thing for you. Piwik is an open source project, where participation is possible and welcome. By installing Piwik on your own server you will have all your statistical data in your own place and not in any cloud space of a third party company.

Pros

  • Cordova is a very powerful tool for a JavaScript developer, since by simply developing in JavaScript one becomes a general developer of software and applications by implementing web technologies for various environments.
  • Cordova is not just an HTML application that runs in a browser, it allows you to write native plugins that work with any of the supported platforms, and a JavaScript container will integrate your HTML application with the native code.
  • Cordova does an amazing job in the field of hybrid application is super easy to use and functional.

  • Nice way of seeing the data: visitors and traffic. Also, the user interface is somewhat customizable.
  • Support for multiple sites, displayed in useful dashboards.
  • Access to the raw data since you have the database local.
  • Open source - especially useful when you have no budget for software purchasing.
  • I find the real-time map feature very useful when we load the system n times more to stretch its limits.

Cons

  • It is not completely automatic since if you write individual style information for each platform objective, you can not make Córdova automatically apply the transormation at compile time; you have to change the linked style manually.
  • The support is deficient in general.
  • Configuration and use can be complicated as it requires the use of the command line.

  • Installation can be a small pain, especially if install permissions are controlled by IT on development environments also.
  • When large sets of data need to be displayed, it can be a little slow. It looks like the database design and the queries used have room for optimization.
  • Since it needs to be "present" in all the pages of the web application, if something goes wrong with Matomo, it can break your app. They call it the JavaScript Tracking Tag that needs to be there on all pages.

At this point, there is not a single conceivable reason as to why we would not renew and continue to use Piwik Analytics. Especially since it is a free program and open source. The product will only get better over time as more people look into it and donate to cause so that development can continue.

For the intermediate user, the overall Piwik usability is pretty straight forward. If you are a beginner or novice, install and customization could prove to be a bit tedious. Especially when it comes to connecting geo-location data for tracking specifics. Overall though, straight from the dashboard you will get an immense amount of information. From there, the menu at the top breaks things down in more specifics.

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

Alternatives Considered

We selected Cordova since it provides ease of doing business and ease of use. The best thing about Cordova is that you can code once and run it on multiple platforms. Cordova provides add-ons that connect your code with native features of various mobile platforms. And you do not need to learn anything new since you can use your javascript skills

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.

Return on Investment

  • Very economic for ROI purposes
  • Scalable for code reusability down the road
  • Convertible, easily switch platforms if Apache Cordova doesn't suit your needs

  • By using Piwik, we can better identify keywords used to search for the website and by targeting those keywords on search engine advertising (Google, Bing, Yahoo), it helps with conversion and also saves us money by cutting down guess work.
  • By using Piwik graphs, it helps to save our employees time in creating pie charts and bar charts to present to upper management.
  • Since Piwik is free to use, there is no reason not to implement it. Most likely, with your website, you will already have access to SQL and hosting package. There is minimal cost to implementing Piwik.
