Overview

Amplitude is an analytics and business intelligence platform that helps make informed decisions for targeting users. This integration allows you to import events from Amplitude into CleverTap to enhance engagement.

Key Benefits

Event Streaming from Amplitude to CleverTap provides the following advantages:

  • Seamless Integration: Allows you to easily integrate in just a few steps. Once the integration is complete, data flows seamlessly from Amplitude to CleverTap in near real-time.
  • Real-Time Insights: Allows you to access real-time insights into user behavior. This includes tracking the pages users visit, the features they engage with, and how they interact with the app.
  • Personalized Experiences: Allows you to craft personalized user experiences that are relevant and engaging. For example, you can send information about a user's location or language preference and use this data to tailor their messaging or content to specific needs.
  • Conversion Tracking: Allows you to effectively measure the performance of the marketing campaigns and track user behavior throughout the funnel. For example, you can track the number of users who, after receiving a specific message from CleverTap, went on to make a purchase or complete another desired action.

Keys Points to Remember

Remember the following when you send events to CleverTap:

  • Relevant limits for CleverTap events are:
    • CleverTap does not impose any hard limits on quantity or velocity; however, requests sent too quickly return 429 responses. Amplitude handles these automatically.
    • The requests must be smaller than 2MB.
  • Amplitude sends selected event properties and user properties with the event.

Prerequisites

  • Ensure you enable this integration for every Amplitude project where you intend to utilize it.
