Apptopia

At first the platform was great although after a while we noticed lots of inconsistencies when we compared with other platforms and confirmed when speaking with publishers. The coverage for iOS was also not great. Overall the coverage was not sufficient. The UI was beautiful looking although if it's not accurate it is pointless.

Google Analytics

For optimizations of anonymous tracking, google analytics is second to none--and it's free! Unless you have extremely high traffic... then it get's very expensive very fast. It is well suited for tracking multiple sales channels, across multiple devices, and allows for very granular tracking. GA supports annotations, providing invaluable context when viewing trends.

  • It effectively identifies what pages on your site are generating your web traffic.
  • It does a good job of telling you how these users arrived on your site (i.e. search, direct, social media, etc.).
  • It exports data really well, so you can support and defend your communications and marketing strategies.

Cons

  • very inaccurate in my team's experience.
  • the beautiful traffic map breakdown was also very inaccurate
  • Needs more app coverage. Did not have information for alot of large publishers we are looking to contact.

  • Simplifying tutorials and how-to guides would definitely help beginners.
  • Integrating Google Analytics to data visualizations that are more in line with Prezi animations rather than PowerPoint-esque graphics would be greatly beneficial to analysts!
  • Updating the user interface to be less overwhelming to first-time users

Google Analytics provides a wealth of data, down to minute levels. That is it's greatest detriment: find the right information when you need it can be a cumbersome task. You are able to create shortcuts, however, so it can mitigate some of this problem. Google is continually refining Analytics, so I do not doubt there will be improvements

I don't think we spent enough time work GA before switching from IBM

Alternatives Considered

Overall it stacked up poorly against other competitors. The inaccurate info, limited coverage on apps and slow UI made it an unpleasant experience. I do not recommend using this program and think there are better solutions out there. The customer support also was not great

Platform-specific analytic tools are useful for sure, but overall still fall short of what Google Analytics provides long-term. The associated trends you can monitor with Google Analytics has much more dynamic potential in reporting, presentations, and developing strategies.
