One of the sites I like to check out everyday is the posts from folks on the Yahoo Web Analytics Forum, it makes my daily reading:
The quote I liked from today was this: "put 90% of your resources into people and 10% into your tools". This is so true. No matter what analytic tool you end up with, you'll still need the analysts to make sense of it all and offer insight into the metrics. I am currently struggling to figure out the paradigm right now on how to go about getting folks in the right mindset to do the heavy lifting. As tools get easier to use and it gets easier to pump out loads-o-data, it becomes supremely important to be able to churn through all the data and come up with something relevant to do with it.
