Dashboards

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Lululemon dashboards on Eagle Edge. The dashboards provide valuable granular insights into online sales metrics for Lululemon products. The Lululemon dashboard enables users to monitor key metrics for Lululemon’s main strategic categories. Over the last four quarters the data has been useful to measure growth in the strategically important men’s category and to observe broad price and discount trends.

Legal & Compliance

Insight from our latest webinar with Lowenstein Sandler regarding the LinkedIn vs HiQ case: “The ruling doesn’t really change anything other than the fact that it gives us all as practitioners more certainty with where the market has been for these last couple of years. If you want to scrape yourself or if you want to hire someone to do it, you need to make sure you’re on the public part of the website. If you don’t have to put in a password or go behind an authentication gateway in any manner, then the information is public.”
