Powerful System with amazing Tracking Dashboard.

Workflow management software, activity tracking and the best for easy data pulling across other platforms very easily.

Pros

Data import across others platforms, productive data analytics and very effective for the activities tracking. The Drag and Drop interface is more helpful on easy navigation, easy to collaborate and monitoring on real-time capability is nice.

Cons

Nothing was detected as a problem on the system usability and also on getting started with the platform and the features.

When data quality and real-time matters

Very satisfied

Pros

It is very transparent as it is an open source software. We set up the validation rules, data modeling rules and data schema, so all in all it is very personalizable. During the onboarding process we got a lot of help from the success team, they were (and still are) really helpful.

Cons

You need some data engineers and architects to set up the data pipelines internally to on-premise datalake or to other marketing tools. It is not particularly Snowplow's fault, you just have to calculate with this issue if your company has strict security standards. It would be the same with other tools as well.

Reasons for Choosing Snowplow BDP

We did not switch, we just completed our tool stack, but when it is about web and app data quality, we prefer now Snowplow data over Google Analytics. Snowplow is an enabler for real-time BI use cases as well.

Snowplow for the win

Being a snowplow user and contributor for more than 4 years, I'm all sold and wouldn*t exchange it for another tool set.

Pros

Snowplow allows you to acquire such a great variety of data which is available to us in full detail and resolution. Additonally the whole ecosystem if stream and batch processing makes it a universal tool for a lot of enterprises

Cons

The learning curve is really steep if you start and read through all the wiki documentation. Good thing it exists, but i can see people being startled at first

Snowplow Insights goes from Good to Great!

Pros

I love the Data Structures functionality, and its relative ease to release new schemas in production. This cut our development and deployment time by 10x.

Cons

The infrastructure section could do with an upgrade. Currently, not sure what to make of it or how useful it is. Perhaps it would be great to see some health attributes / data metrics through it, to understand what is going on, a deeper level.

Solid stuff!

My experience with SP is great, support is on point, communication very solid!

Pros

It's a very versatile/ complete product and helps us greatly in managing our pipeline, infrastructure and thinking about our use cases/ issues.

It's pretty custom to set, requires a lot of engineering work, back and forth communication.

Snowplow is very helpful for tracking events on my website

I have build snowplow event trackers using scala for collector and enrichment prosess. And put the data events to aws s3 using aws kinesis firehose. And i use aws ecs for put collector and enrichment using ec2 instance. This is very stable for track the events due to server less. And i use google tag manager for tracking. With this system we safe my budget better than subsribe google analytics premium.

Pros

Snowplow insights is very useful for tracking events on my website. We can analysis our customers behavior. become value for increasing income in my company. We can track row data for any events.

Cons

Support any programming language you like. And i chose scala for collector and enrichment process.
