Proposal: Web Site Analysis

Information Builders has an internal 'Enterprise Information Portal' (EIP) which provides a single customizable front-end that helps users access, organize and manage the information from a wide variety of content sources.  As EIP expands and users begin to rely on the site more heavily the need for immediate feedback is key.  The project would be to deploy a system to help IBI centrally monitor the site's activity and measure the overall effectiveness of the portal. A series of reports and graphs should be developed to track visitors through any part of the web site and analyze visitor behavior trends over time.

The deliverables are:

(a) Create an application requirement specification.

(b) Evaluate existing 3rd party software and/or supplement with an add-on module. The software currently in-house is WebTrends by NetIQ. If an add-on module is necessary it should be developed using JSP and MySQL.

(c) Develop and deploy a series of reports to help analyze web site activity.
