Analytics for Product Managers

Developing a digital product, like a web app, mobile app, or software can be hard work. A successful business, though, is a smart business, and that’s where data and analytics come into play. By looking at the data that is already running in your business and setting up a variety of free or low-cost tools, you can start to find new ways to improve your product and increase your customer base. This starts by reviewing how users currently engage with your software or app more deeply.

Recently, Elementive collaborated with O’Reilly Media to develop several courses on using analytics for product managers. In these course, you’ll learn different ways to measure and understand how people use your products, through each stage of your user’s journey—from initial discovery to on-boarding to repeated use. You’ll also learn how to put new ideas to the test to see what will work best for your product and your users.
