Kudos Analytics is a light weight analytics and reporting tool for IBM Connections focused on user adoption. In order to improve your adoption of IBM Connections it is essential to understand what your users usage patterns are. How many of your users are actually using Connections? Which features are they leveraging? Importantly which are they not using? Having this knowledge means that you can optimise Kudos Badges as well as your other adoption strategies to target the areas that need extra attention.
Kudos Analytics allows you to analyse both Connections usage as well as the results from Kudos Badges. Kudos Analytics leverages the Metrics Application within IBM Connections and analyzes additional information across the Connections databases. Kudos Analytics is integrated directly within IBM Connections via a series of Widgets.
Kudos Analytics is available as either an add-on feature or standalone program, and takes around 5-10 minutes to implement.
Connections Administrator Analytics & Reports
Connections Administrators need to understand how the environment is being leveraged. How many users are active? How many are not? How many Communities are being created, and which Communities are not longer active? What is the size of the Personal and Community File Libraries?
Kudos Analytics provides Connections Administrators in-depth reports across the entire Connections deployment.
Community Manager Analytics & Reports
Community Managers want to be able to nurture and grow their Communities. They want to make sure their Community members are engaged and they want to know which of their users contribute valued content. In order to do this they need to be able to report and analyse on the usage and content created within their Community. They need to be able to identify which are their power users or top contributors, as well as which users might need a helping hand.
Kudos Analytics enables Community Managers to add reports to their individual communities and sub-communities. These reports provide insights into activity within their own communities.
Personal Analytics & Reports
Having the ability for Administrator and Community Managers to produce analytical reports is obviously very important. But what about individual users? How does a Connections user understand how the content they are contributing is valued by others? What type of content is of interest to others and what content isn’t? Which of my files are used regularly by others and which files just take up space? Which of my blog posts or bookmarks are the most popular so I can understand what content others value so I can focus on creating higher valued content?
This is what Kudos Analytics does via our Personal Analytics Reports. This unique capability provides the ability for individual users to add reports to their personal “My Page”. Using these reports users can gain and understanding into how other users leverage their content such as what are their most popular blog posts, which files are being accessed the most by others, and importantly which users benefit from such contributions.
