ObservePoint Offers Free Deployment Assessment to Show Companies Their Digital Marketing Blind Spots

-Companies get a personalized audit scorecard that shows a sampling of its digital tag infrastructure -

OREM, Utah, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital marketing technology and analytics quality assurance company, ObservePoint, is offering digital marketers a chance to identify some of their digital marketing blind spots with its free deployment assessment. The tool scans 100 pages on a website and delivers a report with data about the efficiency of a company's digital marketing tag deployments. ObservePoint will debut the tool at the Adobe Summit in Booth 200.

"According to our research from auditing millions of pages in 2014, we found that nearly 20 percent of pages across the entire web are missing tags," said, Rob Seolas, CEO and co-founder of ObservePoint.  "When you consider the growing investment into digital marketing and how spotty data collection is, it's alarming to think that marketers are making such heavy investments in technology without proper data quality controls." The deployment assessment gives marketers and decision makers a glimpse into their technology stack's deployment quality and shines a light on their digital marketing blind spots."

ObservePoint's free deployment assessment is a web-based application that automates the auditing process and delivers a personalized scorecard of the company's website and how its tag environment is performing. Companies can receive their free scorecard by visiting learn.observepoint.com/assessment.

Each report will display an audit score based on the following benchmark data:

  • Audit Score – A composite score based on five tagging best practices;
  • Tag Environment – Number and name of tags found on the site;
  • Data Points – Number of pages scanned; page load times; pages missing tags

Tag auditing is a fundamental process of managing data quality in online marketing tools. Advertising, analytics, audience measurement, CRM marketing, and tag management solutions rely on JavaScript tags inserted directly on to each web page. Failing to perform regular tag audits can have disastrous results. During a recent audit, a new ObservePoint customer discovered a 24,000 visit-per-month data loss as a result of a single missing tag.

Continued Seolas, "ObservePoint's mission is to help digital marketers deliver the promise of their technology. Auditing and monitoring tags instills confidence in data and technology, so decision makers can act on marketing truths."

In addition to the free deployment assessment, ObservePoint has recently added over 200 technologies to its free Tag Debugger for Google Chrome. The Tag Debugger troubleshoots and inspects all web analytics tags variables and on-click events variables. The Tag Debugger can be downloaded on their website at http://www.observepoint.com/product#plugin

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment.
