Digital Analytics As a Career Evolution for BI Analysts

Business Intelligence and web analytics have historically operated in separate spheres – BI systems and analysts focused on data from CRM, ERP, and POS transactional systems that has been fed into an enterprise data warehouse, while web analysts have lived in their own silo of semi-anonymous site visitors. Many companies have some sort of link between their web site and their backend systems – be it site registrations fed into the CRM or eCommerce transactions fed into the backend fulfillment and billing systems. But, because much of the traditional data warehouse data in an enterprise is focused on the identification and analysis of individual customers and prospects, and because web analytics systems are historically content-centric, the two worlds exist as separate planets in the same universe.

The reason I have not been such a fan of real-time analytics is not because I don’t see cases where it would be valuable, but rather, I have seen how difficult it has been for organizations to get their arms around regular web analytics data! If it is hard for a company to make good use of its day to day web analytics data, getting real-time data is like pouring gasoline on an already burning fire!

The Dynamic Duo of Testing
by Rhett Norton

The other day I watched a show that I hadn’t seen for a while called “Emperor’s New Groove.” The show has a few moments, but I noticed a common pattern we can learn from—the pattern of the dynamic duo. In this show Yzma is the master mind who comes up with her strategic plots while Kronk is the brawn of the outfit. Together they make a force to be reckoned with, but alone they are nothing. You may have seen this pattern in other stories with other characters like Vizzini and Fezzik, Robin Hood and Little John, the Emperor and Darth Vader, or even Pinky and the Brain. In every case we see the brains and the brawn paired up to execute plans that usually involve taking over the world.
