Digital analytics goes beyond “web” or “site” analytics to encompass a wide spectrum of advanced techniques for using “big data” to reduce costs and increase profit. In Building a Digital Analytics Organization, pioneering expert Judah Phillips thoroughly explains digital analytics to business practitioners, and presents best practices for succeeding with it throughout the business. Phillips covers everything from making the business case through defining and executing strategy, and shows how to successfully integrate analytical processes, technology, and people in all aspects of operations. This unbiased and product-independent guide is replete with examples, many based on the author’s own extensive experience. Coverage includes:
