Piwik PRO: Reasonable Webtrends Alternative

Published: June 23, 2016 Updated: December 15, 2017 Author Category Product Best Practices, Use cases

You have a business need for self-hosted web analytics. Most likely it’s because your organization takes data security and privacy very seriously. There are industries such as telecoms, healthcare, banking, or the government and public sector, which demand premium protection of the sensitive data they gather.

There are very few solutions offering an on-premises model. Until recently, one of the most commonly used ones was Webtrends On-Premises.

BUT, the simple fact is, self-hosted Webtrends is no longer being supported or developed. For better or for worse, the vendor has taken the business decision to focus exclusively on a cloud-based solution.

If you have been relying on self-hosted Webtrends, you may be tearing your hair out right now. What to do if, for whatever reason, your organization can’t use cloud-based analytics solutions? Obviously your only choice is to get your analytics data from somewhere else.
