To calculate results, Optimizely relies on event data obtained through your experiments. These include decision events (from an experiment activation) and conversion events (from whenever a visitor converts on one of your metrics).
This data travels through Optimizely's data export pipeline, which gives you private and secure access to your Optimizely events on the cloud. Enriched Events Export contains all the events Optimizely has received from you, along with other enriched data (experiment ID, session ID and more). This enables data analysts and data scientists to store, analyze, combine and visualize the data as they see fit. For more information, review the Data Specification article for Enriched Events Exports.
The export process gives developers access to their data through Amazon S3. Amazon S3's cloud-based storage will require some development on your end to set up automatic data ingestion or export one-off data. Optimizely allows you to access your data through our Authentication API or through the Optimizely oevents CLI.
You can learn more about exporting your data in the Getting Started with Enriched Events Export developer documentation.
