Web Site Monitoring and Performance Insights

Data visualization made easy by APIs

More and more every day, it’s a data-driven business world. Whether it’s to find the consumers most likely to buy a product right now, or to make sure an online experience is fast and flawless, data is the key to maximizing results. But digesting huge data troves and parsing the results into usable form is an ominous task at best. That’s where data visualization comes in.

Thanks to APIs, data from various sources can be pulled together and presented in whatever form it’s needed, whether it’s to correlate multiple data sources or to prepare a compelling management presentation. You can have Google Analytics next to Keynote Transaction Perspective next to Facebook Page Likes, or whatever data you need and are able to access via an API. One startup that’s targeting the need for data visualization is Leftronic, which is on a mission to make it simple to create impressive data dashboards.

Given the need to be agile and responsive, no matter what business you’re in, usability is key factor for any kind of data visualization process. It can’t be a major IT project anytime a VP requests a particular data mash-up

The Evolution of the Web Page

The Web was originally intended to help researchers share documents as static pages of linked text formatted in HTML. From there, Web pages quickly evolved to include complex structures of text and graphics, with plug-in programs to play audio and video files or to stream multimedia content.

Web developers supplement the basic browser function of rendering HTML by invoking code (scripts) on the user’s computer (the client).

These scripts can create interface elements such as rollover effects, custom pull-down menus, and other navigation aids. They can also execute UI methods, for example, to validate a user’s input in an HTML form. These script capabilities, while they enhance a user’s interaction with individual Web pages, do not change the fundamental model in which application logic runs on the server and executes between Web pages after the user clicks. This behavior is said to be synchronous, that is, after each click the user waits while the server handles the input and the browser downloads a response page.

In e-commerce, a typical user interaction involves a series of Web pages, which represent steps in a larger process that comprise a Web application
