Mixpanel vs Periscope: What are the differences?
What is Mixpanel? Actions speak louder than page views. Mixpanel is an advanced analytics service that helps improve web and mobile applications by tracking how users interact & engage with them.
What is Periscope? Periscope plugs directly into your database and lets you run, save and share analyses over billions of data rows in seconds. Periscope is a data analysis tool that uses pre-emptive in-memory caching and statistical sampling to run data analyses really, really fast.
Mixpanel can be classified as a tool in the "Funnel Analysis Analytics" category, while Periscope is grouped under "Business Intelligence".
Some of the features offered by Mixpanel are:
- Build complex queries without writing SQL.- Segmentation allows you to do incredibly powerful data analysis. Answer complex questions such as “Show me the age breakdown of people who are male, from the United States, and viewed the pricing page” with just a few mouse clicks.
- Segmentation actually understands your data. When you send a number, date, or list of items our interface will automatically figure out how to use it.
- Instead of just a simple average, which only gives you a small part of the information you need, Segmentation automatically determines the perfect bucket size to give you a powerful visualization of the numeric distribution.
On the other hand, Periscope provides the following key features:
- Beautiful Visualizations
- Expert Query Tools
