Quiz Time! The Science of Analytics

Posted on 10.26.2015

There is science behind virtually every business decision nowadays, and it’s all thanks to the power of analytics.

When leveraged properly, Web analytics solutions provide business professionals with the data needed to optimize websites, make better marketing decisions and increase conversions. Enterprises certainly seem to be aware of these benefits, as a study commissioned by Dell Services reveals that more than 70 percent of businesses are actively using or have near term plans to use analytics in their everyday decision-making.

Further, only five percent of those leveraging analytics believe that they have achieved the highest level of analytical maturity. Translation: enterprises can do more.

While the data available within analytics solutions can be quite intimidating, even the most basic metrics (traffic, views, opens, etc.) can be used to benefit a company’s bottom line.
