See you at eMetrics

I will be moderating a round table discussion about "How Trustworthy is your Data/Data Quality from Web Analytics Tools" at eMetrics Toronto, March 29-April 1st. The round table discussion is limited to 10 people, sorry, no vendors, and the goal is to exchange ideas and share experience related to the accuracy of web analytics data and how to do quality assurance.

About a month later, I will be at eMetrics San Jose (May 4-7) were on the "The Softer Side of Metrics - Is it Hot in Here or is it Just Me?" panel with Peterson and Jonathan Levitt. Jonathan will talk about 4Q and I will cover WASP.

On both occasions I will also present the concept of "Web Analytics Maturity Model" I have developed.
