Simplify government analytics by finding out exactly how to best serve the public on your website

Making sure people are accessing the necessary resources on a government website can be a challenging task without the right insights. Not to mention the strict adherence to GDPR and additional emphasis on security and user privacy necessary to ensure the safe-keeping of public data.

Why government agencies need Matomo Analytics:

In order to serve the public better, governments need powerful insights to ensure they’re understanding the roadblocks to public experiences. Where on the website are users getting stuck? What does the public need most help with? With data analytics in the government sector you’re able to get a deeper understanding of your community’s patterns/behaviours to find out how to meet their needs.

As well as this, there’s the crucial aspect of privacy and 100% data ownership to ensure public data doesn’t end up in the wrong hands.

Privacy and security

For many government agencies, respecting the privacy of their citizens is important, and this is why government departments trust Matomo’s On-Premise hosting service. Hosting On-Premise is often a preferred alternative to Cloud hosting, which is what you get from the majority of web analytics platforms. 

Look at Google Analytics for example, which is a cloud-based platform, when using Google Analytics, all traffic patterns are stored on Google’s server, which they can use to figure out a lot about these individuals and can even re-target and track them through their advertising platforms.

GDPR Management

Matomo offers an advanced General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Manager to ensure websites are fully compliant with the new regulation. As the GDPR continues to evolve, you can be assured that Matomo will be at the forefront of these changes to create a safer web experience for everyone.

Making sure websites are fully GDPR compliant with Matomo’s GDPR Manager, including giving users:
✔ Right of access
✔ Right to withdraw consent
✔ Supports “Do Not Track”
✔ Right to data portability
✔ Right to object
✔ Delete historical data
✔ Right to erasure

No data sampling

No Data Sampling

Did you know that accurate data reporting is often capped? Meaning once your website traffic reaches a certain limit, the data then becomes a guess rather than factual.

With Matomo you get 100% accurate data. It’s totally up to you how much data you store and for how long. 

Governments working with large data sets will need this. No other tool will give you the freedom to gain insights without limitations which is a big bonus for departments with demanding data requirements.

This is where tools like Google Analytics become extremely limited and cashes in with their GA Premium suite. At Matomo, we believe all data should be reported 100% accurately.
