Laravel Data-Driven Strategies #3: Improve Your UX using Heat Maps and Click Maps

“Usability is about people and how they understand and use things, not about technology” ~ Steve Krug

At my last meeting with one of my teammates, we started building a prototype for a project. Our aim with the prototype was to study the flow of a specific purpose about the project, collect and analyze some analytics and outline our next moves. As a developer, I wanted to profile the prototype, but obviously, mine wasn’t the only opinion on the table. So I asked if someone needed analytics, and the answer was “heatmaps?”.

What are and what to use

Heatmaps are a way to visualize data about how someone uses a service or a feature. For a web page, heatmaps can show how users move the mouse or touch the page. They usually use colours gradients to represent data.

So why do I need heatmaps? Heatmaps can help UX analyst to have a better understanding of where users focus their attention.

A great library for that is  heatmap.js: open-source, available on  Github and under MIT License.

Your Data Architecture: Simple Best Practices for Your Data Strategy

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you should probably think about your data architecture and possible best practices.

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you most probably need to think about your data architecture and consider possible best practices. Gaining a competitive edge, remaining customer-centric to the greatest extent possible, and streamlining processes to get on-the-button outcomes can all be traced back to an organization’s capacity to build a future-ready data architecture.

In what follows, we offer a short overview of the overarching capabilities of data architecture. These include user-centricity, elasticity, robustness, and the capacity to ensure the seamless flow of data at all times. Added to these are automation enablement, plus security and data governance considerations. These points from our checklist for what we perceive to be an anticipatory analytics ecosystem.

Filtering Data to Deliver Improved Data-Driven Decisions

Data cleansing or scrubbing is a form of data management. Although over the years, businesses accumulate a lot of personal information; ultimately, information becomes outdated. For instance, more than ten years one may change address or name, and then change the address again.

Data cleansingt is a process in which you go through all of the data within a database. And you require removing or updating information that is incomplete, improperly formatted, duplicated, or irrelevant. It typically involves cleaning up data compiled in one area. While data cleansing involves deleting information, it is focused more on updating, correcting, and consolidating data to make sure your system is effective as possible.

The data cleansing process is generally done at once; however, it can take a while if the information has been piling up for years. That’s the reason why it’s essential to perform data cleansing regularly.

Php how to delete multiple rows through checkbox using ajax in laravel

First thing, we will need a table and i am creating products table for this example. So run the following query to create table.

CREATE TABLE `products` (
 `id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
 `name` varchar(255) COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci NOT NULL,
 `description` varchar(255) COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci DEFAULT NULL,
 `created_at` timestamp NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
 `updated_at` datetime DEFAULT NULL,
 PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB AUTO_INCREMENT=7 DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4 COLLATE=utf8mb4_unicode_ci

Next, we will need to insert some dummy records in this table that will be deleted.

INSERT INTO `products` (`name`, `description`) VALUES

('Test product 1', 'Product description example1'),

('Test product 2', 'Product description example2'),

('Test product 3', 'Product description example3'),

('Test product 4', 'Product description example4'),

('Test product 5', 'Product description example5');

Now we are redy to create a model corresponding to this products table. Here we will create Product model. So let’s create a model file Product.php file under app directory and put the code below.

<?php

namespace App;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Product extends Model
{
    protected $fillable = [
        'name','description'
    ];
}

Step 2: Create Route

Now, in this second step we will create some routes to handle the request for this example. So opeen routes/web.php file and copy the routes as given below.

routes/web.php

Route::get('product', 'ProductController@index');
Route::delete('product/{id}', ['as'=>'product.destroy','uses'=>'ProductController@destroy']);
Route::delete('delete-multiple-product', ['as'=>'product.multiple-delete','uses'=>'ProductController@deleteMultiple']);

Only Data-Minded Marketers and Market-Minded Developers Can Achieve Data Driven Marketing

Using data as a part of your marketing plan can have a tremendous impact on your overall results, which is why data-driven marketing has become the standard for many agencies.

However, data-driven marketing may require many businesses to rethink the way they work, especially when it comes to cooperation between their various teams.

You may have heard about the concept of collaboration and automating processes before - something referred to as webops. Now an increasing number of companies are throwing marketing into the mix.

Among the most important factors is a close working relationship between marketing and web development teams if a business wants to make the most of data-driven marketing.
