Triple Your Experiment Velocity by Integrating Optimizely with Your Data Warehouse

Harnessing the power of data and experimentation is central to Updater’s goal of revolutionizing the moving industry. However, while scaling their experimentation program, the team at Updater had to overcome the challenge that many of their conversions happen offline or on third-party sites and therefore couldn't be used in testing. During this session, you’ll learn how Updater fixed this blind spot in their funnels, tripled experiment velocity, and discovered deep user insights by integrating their experimentation platform and data warehouse.
