Website Development Process Conclusion

Six Phases of the Website Development Process

This module discussed the six phases of the Website development process, including the assigned roles, activities, and deliverables required of a design team to complete a Web site development project. With an understanding of the overall process, the required deliverables, and the individual roles assigned to complete them, you should now be able to:
  1. Identify the key elements of the Discovery phase
  2. Identify the key elements of the Definition phase
  3. Identify key success factors and risks of the Discovery and Definition phases
  4. Describe legal, ethical, and regulatory risks in the Definition phase
  5. Describe the documents created during the Design phase
  6. Describe the requirements Definition and the design and architecture specification
  7. Identify the key elements of the Development phase
  8. Identify the key elements of the Delivery phase
  9. Identify the key elements of the Post-delivery phase

Google Analytics and Web Metrics

In addition to tracking mobile and standard websites, Google Analytics can also track mobile apps. Tracking apps is fundamentally different than tracking websites, because apps function differently than websites. The user experience is completely different, because the device offers different ways to interact. There is no mouse and (potentially) no keyboard. With many devices, people use their finger to interact with the app. This change in how people interact with content leads to new and different types of data. While Google Analytics has the capability to track apps, it uses the standard web measurement data model. This means it uses pageviews and visits to measure apps. Both software developer kits (SDKs) also support tracking events in apps. While it is useful to useful to have app tracking, it can be confusing to force the data into a web metrics paradigm.


In this module, you were introduced to the following glossary terms:
  1. Scalability: Scalability is the capability of a system, network, or process to handle a growing amount of work, or its potential to be enlarged to accommodate that growth
  2. Web metrics: These are metircs within a report to give you information with respect to your visitor traffic.
The next module is the course conclusion.
