Why Businesses Are Considering The Market in the Summer of 2022
With the sunsetting of Google Analytics’ Universal Analytics, with just over a year to go, now is the time for all organisations using the UA code to assess their options.
Google’s plan is to move customers to the new GA4 version by July 2023. By moving to an event-based methodology, this is clearly built for a holistic, multichannel world for the future.
However, by rushing it out (normally, these types of crossovers would be given much more time both for Google to develop the tool, and for customers to prepare for the changes that come with them), Google hasn’t given itself enough time to build the features one would expect to see for such a major product launch. So, customers are effectively being asked to put up with an inferior tool, whilst Google catches up.
There are, however, many more options in the digital and multichannel analytics space than even a couple of years ago, so before GA customers reimplement, they should consider the options in the wider market. These include product analytics tools like Amplitude, customer analytics solutions like Adobe Customer Journey Analytics (or CJA as the cool kids call it), home grown solutions across Azure or AWS solutions, independent options like AT Internet, digital data collection tools such as Snowplow and CDPs like Tealium and Adobe’s AEP.
