The Wikimedia Foundation's '''Analytics Engineering team''' is part of the [[mw:Wikimedia Technology|Technology department]].
#REDIRECT [[Data Engineering]]
The Analytics Engineering Team's primary responsibility is to "empower and support data informed decision making across the Foundation and the Community".
We make Wikimedia related data available for querying and analysis to both WMF and the different Wiki communities and stakeholders.
We develop infrastructure so all our users, both within the Foundation and within the different communities, can access data in a self-service fashion that is consistent with the values of the movement.
We keep all our documentation here on Wikitech. See also [[Analytics/FAQ|this FAQ]].
== About us - [[Analytics/Team]] ==
=== Contact ===
If you have questions about our work or the infrastructure we provide, you can contact us in two ways:
* on our public mailing list, [ ''''''] ([[mail:analytics|subscribe, archives]])
* in our public [[meta:IRC|IRC channel]], {{Irc|wikimedia-analytics}}. You can use the keyword ''a-team'' to ping us, so we notice your question.
* during our [[Analytics/Team/Office_Hours|office hours]], which we host as of 2019, January 14th on the second Monday of every month.  [ Add to your calendar] or let us know if that time is too early for you, and we can hold a second session when needed.
=== Work organization ===
The analytics team uses '''Phabricator''' to track its projects.
* for '''backlog''' triage
* for '''in progress''' tasks
=== Prioritization ===
== Datasets ==
* [[Analytics/Data_Lake/Traffic/Webrequest|Webrequests]] [Traffic logs] and [[Analytics/Data_Lake/Traffic/Webrequest#Hive_tables_derived_from_webrequest|derived tables]], including:
** [[Analytics/Pageviews|Pageviews]] [Filtered traffic logs] [TODO - Revamp and add various systems and key differences in schema and usage]
** [[Analytics/Data_Lake/Traffic/Interlanguage|Inter-language]] [Traffic between different languages of the same project family]
** [[Analytics/Data_Lake/Traffic/Unique_Devices|Unique Devices]] Estimates of unique devices at the project or project family level
* Mediawiki raw databases
* EventLogging (in the event database in hive)
* [[Analytics/Data Lake/Edits/Mediawiki history|Edits history]], [[Analytics/Data Lake/Edits/Mediawiki page history|Page history]], [[Analytics/Data Lake/Edits/Mediawiki user history|User history]]
* Other reports
* [[metawiki:Research:Wikipedia_clickstream#Releases|Clickstream]]
==[[Analytics/Systems|Systems]] ==
We maintain various systems to allow querying of our datasets in different fashion.
