Today's 1st goal: working with SIDN on an alternative to Google Analytics

That sounds great!

There are already some alternatives right? Like

Are you looking into a self-hosted option or more of a SaaS solution like Google Analytics offers?

@berkes @kingannoy Many thanks for these! (some are new to me) Tried to search the cool Amsterdam startup but couldn't find it...

@kingannoy Hi Jesse, yes we will use een open source alternative, probably Matamo and run this on the the university's main website. Goal is to compare the results with GA (might be a lot better, because my Firefox -- for instance -- blocks the requests to Google); gather best practices; and make guidelines and documentation that others can use to convince their management to switch to a self-hosted solution too.
