Can we get an Email when Anomalies are detected!
Has helped in so many ways, but having to makes it less effective.
For anyone who voted on this issue, can you add a comment on this thread about how this would impact your business (and your ability to drive your business using Adobe Analytics)? The use cases will help us with our research in this area. Your help is very much appreciated. Thanks!
The way I see it, there are two core benefits to this feature:
The primary use case would be to catch a broken metric that makes it to prod as quickly as possible, so that it can be fixed right away.
In an ideal world, this would never happen, but in reality, I would bet that every analyst has experienced it at least once. This would be the saftey net.
For example, our share click tracking is quite sensitive--I would set up analomaly detection for share rate with a bunch of segments (browser, content type, device) and have SiteCat notify me if share rate dipped unexpectely.
The alternative is to do this with Observe Point or in-house automated testing scripts that run frequently, but this would be even better.
this could save a ton of investment in reporting anomaly detection development as the key thing missing in Adobes is the ability to notify us. this makes adobe a more serious player in our QA operations if the alert functionality was there.
This was announced at Adobe Summit 2016.
Implemented as of 20 October 2016.
