What Phillip will share with you at CRAP Talks 14

Phillip will talk about the beta launch of a new website and the associated analytics process and considerations. The talk will cover three primary areas in detail. Namely, the planning and process of a beta launch, how data tag hygiene was managed, and finally reporting on Beta performance through real-time dashboards.

Planning the Launch - How Analytics fitted into to the Wider Plan

The number one priority of the new website was to ensure that there was no detrimental impact on lead generation. This section covers the wider back ground to the project and discusses some of the consideration you need to plan for, including working with different analytics implementations, load balancing traffic between the sites, and user journey mapping.

Data Hygiene - How we worked with Observepoint to Ensure Tag Hygiene?

Given the multiple parties involved and the fluid nature of the CMS build, it was critical that we were able to ensure that the tagging and data collection was comparable with the website’s predecessor. To allow this to happen at scale and speed, we leveraged Observepoint (OP). In this section, we discuss how we worked with the Observepoint tool and the wider OP team to ensure this.

Reporting and Monitoring - Developing a Real time Dashboard with Amazon Athena and Tableau

One of the key requirements was to be able to monitor core KPIs to ensure that the rollout of the beta website did not Impact lead generation; with the intention to be able to roll back any changes quickly should any issues arise. As such, we needed reports that were digestible to enable key decision makers to move quickly. This report also needed to be delivered in a real time nature as soon as possible. So, in this section we will cover off how we leveraged Amazon Athena and Tableau to deliver this.
