Why is Opentracker so darn good?
New features, improvements
and state-of-the-art technology
If we were still writing press releases, we’d be putting them out a few times a week.
Q: Why is Opentracker moving so fast and releasing new features every two weeks at the moment?
A: Highlights: we rebuilt our core technologies, implemented an API and changed our development methodology. We moved from MySQL to Cassandra, improved search features, and implemented Agile throughout our organization.
Q: What does this actually mean?
A: This makes feature development much easier for us and our customers. Opentracker is better at change than ever; fast, state-of-the-art, flexible, responsive, and industry-standard (Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc).
Q: What does this mean in practice?
A: We have a greatly increased flexibility, through the means of a web analytics api;
which we use ourselves, for example to provide:
- An OT Dashboard
Click for illustration and description of traffic engagement dashboard.
- Universal search: a real-time “google search” through all your traffic/ visitor data, a search bar located on the top of the Recent & Online visits report page.
Read about and see visuals of “google search” through all your visitor traffic data.
- The ability to search for any activity on any page, in the form of a search bar at the top of Most Popular Pages report.
