From dumping everything to just getting the right data
Dear Data-Traveller, please note that this is a LinkedIn-Remix.
I posted this content already on LinkedIn in August 2022, but I want to make sure it doesn’t get lost in the social network abyss.

Improve your data collection from dumping everything (yes, everything) to just getting the right things.
Now that I wrote this, I recognize it’s like doing groceries with or without writing down what you need.
I am currently working on my first course for the deepskydata video platform, and it is “data collection 101”. Here are the chapters:
01 – introduction to data collection
02 – The easy “just dump it” approach to data collection
03 – Disconnection between tracking and business actions
04 – Collect the important business questions
05 – Collect data using a metrics-based approach
06 – Collect data using a business & product-based approach
07 – The benefits of a structured approach instead of just dumping the data
08 – The “Segment” way of Event Tracking – and the problems it can create
09 – The Entity & Activity-based event schema
10 – Business Events – data that represents your business
11 – Product Events – data that shows product usage
12 – Interaction Events – most granular level of events
It’s really new to me to create these things but I am learning…
If you like to learn this, follow the link. We are still building but hope to open the doors by the end of September.
