Matomo Analytics (formerly Piwik)

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.

Pendo.io

Pendo.io is well suited for companies that want detailed usage information. Page and feature tagging is simple, yet offers incredible information on behaviors (funnels, paths, etc). The Product team finds this detail invaluable in supporting data-driven decisions for design and development.Pendo.io is well suited for companies that need usage information to guide implementation and customer communication. Customized dashboards allow different teams to view at-a-glance information that is important to their work. The in-app guides make it simple and easy for users to access resources without having to navigate away from their work.Pendo.io may not be well suited for companies that need to track text/content entered into text boxes within their application, although we have not found that to be a problem.

Pros

Matomo Analytics (formerly Piwik)

  • Piwik does a great job of allowing customized campaign tracking to try and hit marketing or funding goals.
  • The robust plugin architecture allows for a large amount of custom development to track very specific needs. The availability of a REST API also allows you to build in support for Piwik to your in-house applications which can enable developers to track bugs with more precision.
  • The dashboard structure allows you to create specialized views for specific user roles so that you can give a specific focus to a small subsection of the reported data. This is an excellent way to show non-technical users only the portion of the data they are interested in without getting bogged down into the details.

Pendo.io

  • High-quality analytics.
  • Pointed delivery that meets the user's needs of information, without destroying the Customer Experience.
  • Dedication to customer success. Anytime I have gone to the Pendo.io team for clarity beyond what shows in their app and docs, they are quick and informative, while updating what they have publicly available.
  • Usability-driven - Pendo.io realizes not everyone uses the same platforms, and makes the best possible availability of integrations and ability to custom-code an integration through their robust API.

Cons

Matomo Analytics (formerly Piwik)

  • I wish there were some additional pre-formatted tiles/tabs to choose from
  • Creating custom data sets for tiles/tabs is not straightforward and there isn't much in the way of explanations on how to do it
  • I have clicked the "WP-Piwik - SEO" button in setting/statistics but can't seem to get the data to populate. Again, not much in the way of "Help" on the site to assist in figuring it out.

Pendo.io

  • I would love it if Pendo.io would add a dedicated space where you can work on segments. Having to access them through drop-downs in random places throughout the app isn't the best.
  • I'd love for them to expand their integrations with other programs that support product managers.

Given, that I do not make a decision wherever to buy the product, I think the biggest culprit would be name recognition (that Piwik currently lacks compared to Google Analytics and such). Also, not to put it into negative light, but being "free" raises eyebrows, as being a lesser software

We have had an excellent experience with Pendo. When we've had questions or concerns, Pendo is very quick to respond and communicate with us. We have experienced top-notch customer support and customer engagement. We have actually modeled some of our implementation and product processes after Pendo's examples.

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)

Overall, Pendo provides a smooth interface, especially with the most recent update, and I couldn't imagine using or learning any other platform so product focused. From the moment I log into Pendo, I know where I'm going and what I'm looking for and I'm able to find that, through the interface, in as little time as possible. This helps keep me focused on doing other tasks at work so I'm not overburdened with hunting things down in the system

The best thing about the Matomo support is that they have a forum which basically you can find the answer to almost all of your questions and most of the time you don't need to contact them regarding your questions and problems but if you need help they will answer in a reasonable time slots.

My initial review of Pendo was glowing - as was my experience at the time. Since then Support, which was once a huge Pendo plus, has become a disaster. They've moved away from dedicated CSMs - at least for a segment of accounts - and to a centralized support model.. however, it can take a week for me to get an initial response to a ticket. I've had to escalate darn near every one in recent months, and most never get satisfactorily resolved. Feels like major scaling issues going on at Pendo, and a whole lot of untrained people. And yes, this will make me reconsider renewing at the end of the year.

The training schedule was well thought out and tailored to meet our needs. Chantelle stayed with us through the whole implementation and made sure that we were good to go.

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

Alternatives Considered

Matomo Analytics (formerly Piwik)

With Matomo Analytics you have total control of your platform, whereas with Google Analytics you never know how they'll be using your data. Being an open source platform allows you to build plugins and themes for this great platform. Some of the users have already build some plugins freely available and some are commercial.
Jean Franco | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pendo.io

Pendo is much simpler than the competition:
  1. WalkMe seems to be very robust for guided walkthroughs, but the UI for both authors and visitors is clunky by comparison to Pendo.
  2. Google Analytics tracks anything and everything... but only if someone else has set it up properly. It's very difficult for someone without direct access to the code to start tracking anything, or to make sense of it once they do. Pendo is lightyears ahead in this regard.
Also Pendo has the very cool capability of allowing you to look backwards in time, and see analytics for the past--even if you hadn't yet set up the specific tags you want to track for that period in the past. (I believe you DO have to have Pendo already installed for that period, but you don't have to have specified everything in advance; you can do that later.)
