Webtrends Automates Audience Segmentation Across Channels
When it comes to marketing, we are in fact special, beautiful and unique snowflakes. Enterprise intelligence company Webtrends (news, site) has enhanced their suite to reflect this belief, adding new segmentation capabilities for individual evaluation. 


"As companies mature and understand the importance of understanding the behavior of their customers and prospects across channels, they are looking for solutions to provide robust individual-level data for the digital channel that can also easily be integrated with other channels of data to help drive business action," explained Webtrends.

The company's answer to this need is called Segments, an add-on to the Webtrends Visitor Data Mart due out tomorrow. The tool will enable users to isolate individuals and their behavior before pushing them into their action system of choice (CRM, e-mail, a data warehouse, applications, etc.):

Analytics in the Springtime

Marketing, Web analytics, measurement--it's all getting grouped together for a major overhaul this year. You can see that in the number of solutions not only Webtrends has kicked out since January, but in competing companies like Omniture and Google as well. Even Facebook has its own integrated analytics solution

Naturally, Webtrends is nowhere near slowing down. Rumor is that they're planning on releasing the following upgrades this spring:

  • SDKs for Webtrends Mobile Analytics: provides marketers with mobile application tracking to make the integration of mobile tracking into native mobile applications easy.
  • Customizable traffic source reports: identify what sources are driving traffic to a web site with the ability to customize traffic source values such as social media, Facebook and mobile web sites.
  • Custom Reporting: offers administrators enhanced custom reporting capabilities with increased report measures, while developers will now have access to a new version of the Webtrends Data Extraction API.
