What do early-mid sized startups do for analytics tools? They don't have the budget for goog analytics, omniture per se so how do they manage and report on analytics in house? I've only worked in large corps so I've only had experience with the enterprise software solutions. Curious to know how other companies implement tracking for analytics, what are these 'in house solutions', if any?

      Mode is even better than Tableau for most use cases.

      I guess maybe a better q would be what startups use for data warehousing solutions as the foundation. Is there such a thing as getting it set up from scratch internally or do they try and pay for teradata, Amazon redshift? I'm not a data scientist so trying to learn more about the foundational side of analytics

      Set up infrastructure on AWS. You are looking for a data engineer, not scientist. DS knows little about infrastructure.

    Office 365 is great for a startup more integrations you can pull in easily.

      If you pull them in you can use it for analytics. You probably won't find one tool that is best but multiple tools to use and you need something to pull them together

    Also consider the data architecture behind the analytics tools. That will lead you to the right toolset. Questions to consider, what does business mean by analytics? What’s the refresh rate they looking for? Is it real time? If so, what’s real time. Do they want transactional data to be reflected as well? Any future prospects for data science? How big will Business or data set grow in next 5 yrs?

      Yep, I think data architecture/warehousing would've been the better q to ask. Not something I'd be tasked to solve but trying to learn more

    segment data warehouse + mode/tableau, or alternatively something like Looker. Chartio also announced a new partnership last week with Panoply and Stitch

    Startups don't have edws, or at least any worth a damn. Qlik can both be the database warehouse and the visualization, not to mention the connectors to other startup apps like sfdc, workday, etc are free.

    I've heard of Periscope data but haven't used it and in asking around about it, I hadn't really heard much to make me want to use it. Nothing overly negative either. If you try it, let me (and the guy from there) know what you think
