I just received an email asking advice on GA connection options:
"_______ is using Google Analytics to track a number of .edu sites they manage. They asked me if there are any good ways to get GA data into a Data Warehouse so that Tableau can make use of it. I think they felt that the Tableau GA Connector was too slow or otherwise inadequate."
We usually go the export GA to Excel route, so we can get the data we want. Of course we're usually looking at short runs, at daily or weekly aggregation, so we don't get big chunk of data.
Does anyone else use other methods to get data out of GA? Anyone have any suggestions I can report back? Thanks,
