Big Data, which we now refer to as the internet, has grown largely because of its accessibility. These new requirements are met by Big Data.

Web Analytics was born out of the challenges and needs. Web Analytics is a new field of expertise and knowledge.

The software that was used to measure the results was a major component of this new area of information technology.

It was not very accurate. In those days, web strategists essentially shot arrows into the dark.

This is why the “Internet Boom of the 90’s”, which we now refer to as the “Internet Boom of the 90’s”, was actually a blind gold rush. If you are interested in this article, please let me know.

Over time, it has evolved to be a distinct field and a specialty that requires specific expertise.

Knowledge, background, and skills. Let’s go back to the chronological tour of the history of
