Bitdeli vs Keen: What are the differences?

What is Keen? Keen is the embedded analytics API that makes shipping custom user-facing analytics easy and seamless. Keen is a set of powerful APIs that allow you to collect, analyze, and visualize events from anything connected to the internet. Send all your data – any event, from any source, all the time, any time. Keen IO was specifically built to capture and store event data — those constant little interactions that happen all day, every day, in your apps. Event data can be anything, and Keen IO gives you the ability to grab as much of it as you want, then store it forever on our cloud database.

Bitdeli and Keen belong to "Custom Analytics" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Bitdeli are:

  • Bitdeli organizes analytics as cards. A card can show where your business is going or what your users are doing - anything based on your data. A card can work as a dashboard or a live report.
  • Bitdeli can fetch data from your existing analytics provider and other 3rd party services, so you don't need to change anything to get started with Bitdeli.
  • You can also send data directly to Bitdeli to benefit from real-time analytics.

On the other hand, Keen provides the following key features:

  • You can track any kind of interaction that is happening in your website, mobile app, or backend. Simply insert some code to start sending a particular event to Keen IO whenever it happens. For example, if you want to track button taps, you put some code in your app to send an event to Keen IO whenever someone clicks that button.
  • Run counts, sums, funnels, averages, segmentation and much more, using simple queries
  • Draw and chart your data and display it in a custom dashboard, an analytics tab in your app, or white labeled for your customers

    Reviews of Bitdeli and Keen
    Review ofKeenKeen

    I'm using Keen's Ruby client library to track two different collections of event data, and I'm using their Javascript visualization library to provide white label dashboards for our customers. I like Keen's elegant solution to keep customer X from seeing customer Y's dashboard.

    The service is incredibly easy to use, both from a data collection standpoint and a visualization perspective. I ran into a few snags with the documentation lagging behind the actual code, but I got pretty near real-time support from one of the founders emailing me from 30,000 ft over Thanksgiving weekend.

    The only reason I know about any reliability issues is because Keen emails me whenever anything is degraded or problematic, even if it only lasts a few minutes. They could be a whole lot less transparent and get away with it, but they don't take that short cut.

    We use Keen to analyze transfer logs over at Mover (https://mover.io). Each time a user performs a transfer of files we give Keen a summary of their transfer. At any time, technical and non-technical users on our team can easily pull information out of the datasets we've presented.

    Keen makes it extremely easy to feed data and then ask for useful graphs and formatted information. We wrote a larger review on our blog at https://blog.mover.io/2014/03/15/why-we-chose-keen-io/

    I’ve known the Keen IO team since I started working on Leanstack and they’ve been super helpful. Leanstack didn’t have too much use for something like Keen early on. But recently we started talking to vendors that wanted access to basic analytics for their pages (views and clicks). So we started thinking about how we could provide customer-facing dashboards. That’s when Josh over at Keen suggested Keen, and it seemed like a great fit. Not only could we use Keen for external dashboards, but we could use it to get insight into usage for our own purposes.

    At the same time they were working on an open source library called CommonWeb that helps you track everything happening on your site with little-to-no configuration. So we signed up and agreed to be a guinea pig for their new library to see how CommonWeb could help us. It’s been super useful so far. We now know who’s logging in to StackShare, how long they were on the site, and which content they contribute; we have much better insight into funnels, and we’ll soon have dashboards. The Keen team has been great as far as support (thanks Alex!). I think we’re really going to be able to improve the site once we start using the data we’re collecting, super excited about that. We’re definitely going to be using their new open source dashboards.

    Keen IO allows me to have a big data infrastructure without needing to set up and maintain the hardware and software. Their SDKs (available in many languages, my faves are Python and JavaScript) allow data to be stored, sliced and diced, and then visualized.

    The timing and build data that is generated from the monitored builds is stored in the Keen.io database using its Python library, the analysis and visualisation Javascript SDK powers the Trends dashboard.

    Having watched the Keen.IO guys grow their company since it's inception, I think we can safely say that they are one of the best out there in terms of general analytics and storage.

    To keep track of who is visiting the repo, but Github recently started offering something similar with https://github.com/cyrusstoller/RevTilt/graphs/traffic.

    I used Keen because it was an extension that could be added through Heroku. It was very easy to set up application metrics and dashboards with them.
