Server-side tagging introduces something of a paradigm shift to setting up marketing data collection for an organization. Instead of burdening the client device with the responsibility for sending data to third-party endpoints, the data streams are instead proxied through a server-side endpoint that your organization owns. This has huge implications on things like data governance, quality, privacy, security, and enrichment. Unlike traditional “server-side tracking”, where data is collected and processed server-to-server, server-side tagging lets you essentially turn a server environment into a tag management solution.
In this talk, Simo Ahava will walk you through this new paradigm, introducing concepts that some of you might remember from pre-Google-Analytics days of web analytics. But server-side tagging is just so much more. Just like tag management for web browsers broke pre-established notions of what it is to deploy marketing pixels on a site, server-side tagging is here to disrupt the outdated approach of stuffing the site full of third-party resource loads and hoping that the users won’t notice.
