We collect data about website traffic from GA, Optimizely and Snowplow and we merge it with email campaign data from Salesforce Marketing Cloud. We then enrich this with data from our transactional production databases and other internal and external sources. This data then powers a number of reports and live dashboards (Geckoboards).
