Business performance reports

You can use this feature to view the recommendation results of AIRec. You can set trace_id to Alibaba to obtain recommendation results that are generated in AIRec, and set trace_id to selfhold to obtain recommendation results that are generated in a self-developed or self-operated recommendation system. Then, you can compare the recommendation results.

1. Instance dashboard

The instance dashboard allows you to view recommendation results in AIRec. You can compare current recommendation results with historical recommendation results to monitor the status of business data at the earliest opportunity.

Metrics

PV_CTR: the Click Through Rate (CTR). Calculation formula: Total number of clicks/Total number of exposures. Duplicate records are counted.

UV_CTR: the proportion of users who click an item. Calculation formula: Number of users who click an item/Total number of users who view a page.

PV_CVR: the conversion rate. Calculation formula: Number of purchases/Number of clicks.

UV_CVR: the proportion of converted users. Calculation formula: Number of users who purchase an item/Number of users who click the item.

Active items: the total number of items on which users performed operations.

Compare (Day to Day): the comparison of the current value with the value of the previous day.

Compare (Week over Week): the comparison of the current value with the value of the same day last week.

Highest: the maximum value in a query period.

Lowest: the minimum value in a query period.

Average: the average value of all days in a query period.

Daily Active Users: the number of users whose behavioral data is returned within one day.

Monthly Active Users: the number of users whose behavioral data is returned within 30 days.

Terms

trace_id: specified in a behavior table. This field is used to specify whether behavior entries are generated by using AIRec or a self-developed recommendation system. For more information about the trace_id field, see data specifications.

Cross-channel users: the number of users in different buckets for A/B testing. Users must be randomly assigned and can obtain recommendations only from AIRec or a self-developed recommendation system for comparison testing on the recommendation effect. In this case, the metric value is 0.

Example: Two behavior entries are returned for a user whose user_id is 1. The bhv_type field is set to expose in both behavior entries, and the trace_id field is separately set to Alibaba and selfhold. This indicates that the recommendation results that are viewed by the user are separately generated by AIRec and a self-developed recommendation system. In this case, the user is a cross-channel user.

The Business Objectives section contains the following metrics: PV_CTR, UV_CTR, PV_CVR, and UV_CVR. You can set Channel to alibaba to obtain metric measurement results that are generated in AIRec, and set Channel to selfhold to obtain metric measurement results that are generated in a self-developed or self-operated recommendation system. Then, you can compare the metric measurement results.
