The WURFL InSight Solution

For over 10 years, ScientiaMobile’s WURFL solutions have set the standard for accurate device analytics. Now, business analysts can have this device intelligence integrated via modules that built to integrate WURFL device analytics into their Business Intelligence tools. They will receive:

  • Integration of WURFL mobile analytics tools with the transformation and/or dashboarding capabilities of BI tools
  • Receive weekly updates that ensures accurate device detection
  • Enhance Web logs, selecting from over 500 WURFL device capabilities


Adding Device Capabilities to Web Logs 

WURFL works by matching user agents found in web logs with WURFL’s extensive repository of devices. Because device, operating systems, and browsers are constantly updating, new user agents will appear in web logs every week. Therefore, you need a data service that constantly researches and maps these user agents. Every week, ScientiaMobile provides business analysts with updates.

In addition, WURFL InSight allows analysts to select from over 500 fields that describe and classify device capabilities. These capabilities describe critical features like screen dimension or media rendering capabilities. These also include useful virtual capabilities like “is_smartphone”, “is_robot”, and “is_touchscreen” that provide Boolean logic that can help characterize device traffic.

Easy Integration via WURFL InSight Mobile Analytics Tools

Licencsed WURFL InSight users can quickly install their modules and WURFL components from their ScientiaMobile account vault. The initial installation comes with a pre-built dashboard that supports analytics for device name, form factor, mobile device manufacturer, and OS. Additionally, you can write custom, lookup searches and pivots. If you need more information about the device, its capabilities, OS, or the browser it is using, you can add more WURFL capabilities to suit your needs.
