Whether you're planning to include it into a website or a mobile application, this arrangement is simple to implement. The best feature has to be its superb "division," which allows you to delve deeper into your data without using SQL-like queries. On Ubuntu, the free "group version" can act organically aided.

Firebase

When it comes to product development, Firebase is the greatest tool for startups with limited resources and team members. Having a suitable authentication and database is simple and inexpensive. While I recommend Firebase for analytics, it is not ideal for a corporation that requires a SQL database.

Pros

Countly

  • Open-source and Self-hosted - Countly can be completely self-hosted, which makes it really easy to offset costs of a competing service like Segment or Mixpanel for early-stage companies.
  • A large number of SDKs and platform support - Countly provides fairly comprehensive support for mobile applications and general tracking. As a result, it's pretty easy to create comprehensive tracking of events for any company.
  • Custom queries, access to data - You have instant access to data and extensive customizability which makes this platform fairly easy to use for any purpose of user and market tracking.

Firebase

  • Analytics wise, retention is extremely important to our app, therefore we take advantage of the cohort analysis to see the impact of our middle funnel (retargeting, push, email) efforts affect the percent of users that come back into the app. Firebase allows us to easily segment these this data and look at a running average based on certain dates.
  • When it comes to any mobile app, a deep linking strategy is essential to any apps success. With Firebase's Dynamic Links, we are able to share dynamic links (recognize user device) that are able to redirect to in-app content. These deep links allow users to share other deep-linked content with friends, that also have link preview assets.
  • Firebase allows users to effectively track events, funnels, and MAUs. With this simple event tracking feature, users can put organize these events into funnels of their main user flows (e.g., checkout flows, onboarding flows, etc.), and subsequently be able to understand where the drop-off is in the funnel and then prioritize areas of the funnel to fix. Also, MAU is important to be able to tell if you are bringing in new users and what's the active volume for each platform (Android, iOS).

Cons

Countly

  • The UI is not the best
  • Documentation- hard to find what you're looking for sometimes

Firebase

  • Attribution and specifically multi-touch attribution could be more robust such as Branch or Appsflyer but understand this isn't Firebases bread and butter.
  • More parameters. Firebase allows you to track tons of events (believe it's up to 50 or so) but the parameters of the events it only allows you to track 5 which is so messily and unbelievable. So you're able to get good high-level data but if you want to get granular with the events and actions are taken on your app to get real data insight you either have to go with a paid data analytics platform or bring on someone that's an expert in SQL to go through Big Query.
  • City-specific data instead of just country-specific data would have been a huge plus as well.

It is simple to use overall, the console's main menu is divided into Develop, Quality, Analytics and Grow - which have further subdivisions by their set of features and tools. Develop and Quality are relevant for product and tech. Analytics is relevant for product, analytics and Grow is relevant for marketing. This makes the overall use very easy.

Countly practically does everything you need it to do. However, it can have challenges of its own sometimes.

Our analytics folks handled the majority of the communication when it came to customer service, but as far as I was aware, the support we got was pretty good. When we had an issue, we were able to reach out and get support in a timely fashion. Firebase was easy to reach and reasonably available to assist when needed.

Alternatives Considered

Countly

Countly have two main elements that make it the better option. First is open sourced so you can edit with code new options and new events, also you can use a variety of plugins depending of the necessities of the users and the objectives of every analysis. The second characteristic is that is very easy to use and even if is open source and the code could seem complex everything is very intuitive.

Firebase

Before using Firebase, we exclusively used self hosted database services. Using Firebase has allowed us to reduce reliance on single points of failure and systems that are difficult to scale. Additionally, Firebase is much easier to set up and use than any sort of self hosted database. This simplicity has allowed us to try features that we might not have based on the amount of work they required in the past.

Return on Investment

Countly

  • It is great for beginners!
  • It is simple to use!
  • It can be integrated with other apps such as Ubuntu.
Nicolas Van Levi Buenviaje | TrustRadius Reviewer

Firebase

  • Firebase has meant that we can go to market more quickly due to its automation of repetitive boiler plate tasks, such as authentication provider support
  • Firebase's free tier is ideal for low to moderate use apps, and if your app grows to high use, the paid tier is very affordable
  • Firebase's excellent cross platform support has reduced development expense when porting apps to other platforms
