VMware May 2013

VMware.com English and non-English Omniture Reports

  • 5/30/13 reports added to Elaine's dashboard. Report monthly. Determine format.
  • We can currently pull reports for OIVs on VMware sites for vCloud Director, SRM, VSA, and vSphere only - can we add those reports to dashboard?

Vidcaster English and non-English

  • English: From vmwarelearning.com/admin (Vidcaster) pull total numbers from each product for each video
    • Non English: From vmwarelearning.com/admin pull language reports for all products and combine all .csv reports into one report and then copy and paste each number into the spreadsheet (about 500 entries) See process

YouTube English and non-English

  • YouTube English: only vSphere and SRM as the others are combined into the Vidcaster reports. Go directly to YouTube and pull numbers for each video.
    • YouTube non English: we have not been able to collect those numbers - Check status

OIV Report: http://bryantstreetcafe.wikidot.com/vmware-oiv-report (this is a description of the current process)

If you can, that would save me from doing it. I need to deliver to Cornelius by end of day. Can you help?

Hi Elaine,

Would it be possible to have Mary break out our Q1 education proliferation metrics (OIVs, elearning) by EUC vs. SDDC? … Today? SDDC would be everything that is not EUC


Pushing localized OIVs to YouTube (NOT DONE) AI April: Check on status.

Check if any localized videos where pushed to youtube, if not then see if we can get them pushed. 3/19/13 status from Danielle:
All localized views are only from VidCaster views, not YouTube. We don't allow you to push your localized videos out to YouTube yet. You can see in your screen shot that at the bottom it shows you the viewing method as 100% your site. That means all views were on VidCaster. If you saw a percentage for YouTube, then you will know that your views include YouTube.

I have a developer working on a YouTube upgrade right now. We are going to make the analytics dashboard much clearer and display explicit VidCaster vs. YouTube counts. This upgrade ground work will help us build out your localized YouTube push as well.

4/22/13 I checked Vidcaster Admin (vmwarelearning.com/admin) and it does not look like any localized videos have been pushed to YouTube.

I get a weekly eLearn report from mylearn detailing how many users access our free eLearning. Can you submit a CR requesting that this report add two columns (as shown in my attached example report in blude highlights) to detail how many were VMware Employees versus how many were customers (which can then add up to the total Reg number).

Please include that this request is from Laura Narducci and Rick Jackson. Let me know the CR number and include in your weekly status report as this has HIGH visibility.

Hi Elaine,

There is a request to understand who is registering/viewing the elearning courses.

Can you request a data pull from mylearn of all registrants so we can determine (as much as possible) how registrations are split by vmware employee/partner/external?


May 22, 2013 Elaine discussion

  • Danielle working on better reporting of InVideo links: measuring how many people click on a link inside a video. Watch and track when possible
  • Split: how many watching End User Computing (EUC) and how many watching Software Defined DataCenter (SDC).
    • Elaine will forward email
    • Want this report.
  • Getting data on some of the education pages; for example, top classes by time zone. Then she thinks we lose people (and data of their views) when they login because that data goes somewhere else.
    • What kind of data am I able to derive with that?
  • Pass any questions to Cindy Chin - Elaine will send her email. She is on Omniture team.
  • Are we getting all the info per report (the login reporting issue, if it exits)
  • How many people are looking at eLearning:
    • VMware employees
    • Non VMware employees



- eLearning report (ensure our Localization page courses are included) 3/25/13 DONE. See Audit report to Elaine 3/23/13
- OR
- eLearning only – no demo (Elaine to confirm)

Missing video on YouTube

Check with Tony Dunn on that one unpublished youtube video
Videos are posted here: http://www.youtube.com/user/VMwareLearning/videos?view=0
I don't think this site is the one we set up. Check to see if all the other vCloud Director Videos are here. They are.
