One third of companies struggle with poor data analytics

By Lorraine S. Green

Are you one of them? A new report by our partner Siteimprove and IDG uncovers obstacles modern marketers face when it comes to creating a smooth customer journey.

Does your marketing team face data analytics challenges? Or struggle to keep your website compliant with data privacy laws? If so, a new report by Siteimprove and IDG has found that you’re not alone. The report uncovers obstacles modern marketers face when it comes to creating a smooth customer journey, as well as their focus areas for 2020.

Key findings from the report include:

  • 33% of companies report poor data analytics as an issue
  • 84% of companies say the main purpose of their website is merely to act as a company brochure
  • 19% of respondents say websites are still not GDPR compliant
  • 64% say well-targeted content is their biggest web optimization challenge

According to our own research at Comprend, analytics is a high priority, although the majority use it only for KPIs or to measure the size of their audience.
