ADOBE DPS : AnalyticsPosted: July 26, 2012
Hello DPS users \ fans, here is a good document from ADOBE which explains what exactly can be monitored through DPS analytics using either the DPS PRO, ENTERPRISE of with a full SiteCatalyst account. Take for good that most of the “juicy” counters are not available to DPS PRO subscribers.
For example, what good is it to know if a page has been viewed when you could know how much TIME has been spent on it? How often has happened to us to flip carelessly through the pages of a Digital Magazine without actually “seeing” the content? Would we really care to monitor that kind of action?
Anyhow some counters are really handy, for example the fact that you can track ads and videos opened in them. There would be a lot to be explained for many metrics but most of them speak for themselves.
Baseline analytics are included in both the Professional and Enterprise editions of Digital Publishing Suite. Publishers with an Adobe SiteCatalyst subscription can access digital publishing data directly in SiteCatalyst for advanced analysis, leveraging the full suite of SiteCatalyst report categories. Also, Baseline provides pre-defined reports, while SiteCatalyst data views are configurable.
