with True Server-side Tracking.
With DLYX DataLayer Proxy, almost all of the tracking scripts move from the user browser to a server, which means that only the server communicates with Google Analytics, not the user browser. Processing of the dataLayer, however, stays unimpaired and works in the same way as with Google Tag Manager, including all your accustomed E-Commerce events.
Additionally, all Tags, Variables and Triggers can be built in your standard Google Tag Manager user interface and subequently imported to your DLYX environment.
Any dataLayer push events will automatically be sent to the DataLayer Proxy, processed and forwarded to Google Analytics via the Measurement Protocol.
Server-side tracking bypasses a browser's tracking prevention mechanisms, and this is exactly what DLYX the DataLayer Proxy does.
