How is Makitoo different from other analytics tools?¶
Makitoo enables you to easily make data analysis on your product, without any data analyst or developer involved. How? Instead of focusing on traffic or funnels, Makitoo helps product teams to analyze the impacts of each new features or releases on their key metrics. Therefore you can easily know where you should focuse your product efforts.
The two main concepts you should understand are: KPI and features.
What is a feature?¶
A feature is a part of your software or an alternative to an existing one.
