Published by the same trusted team that has been providing vendor-neutral technology evaluations for the past 7 years, the report provides a comprehensive overview of Web Analytics solution providers and best practices.

What's inside

The Web Analytics Report (Basic Edition, Site License) is ideal for those looking to develop a business-driven Web Analytics strategy, or who are considering selecting Web Analytics technology and require unbiased technical assessments, or who simply need a comprehensive guide to this complex landscape.

Like other CMS Watch offerings, the Web Analytics does not rank "best" vendors, but instead details the strengths and weaknesses of the various players, identifies their suitability for different use cases, and isolates vendor tendencies that may influence long-term product road maps.

This report addresses several essential issues for an enterprise investigating Web Analytics solutions, including:

  • Business-case analysis
  • Detailed functional charts explaining essential Web Analytics features
  • Implementation advice and best practices
  • Head-to-head comparisons of the leading products, with detailed evaluation charts
  • When not to use free services like Google Analytics or Yahoo! Analytics
  • Critique of new vendors providing video and mobile traffic analytics solutions

Vendors include:

  • Digital River
  • Google
  • Intellitracker
  • Nedstat
  • VisiStat
  • Yahoo!
  • Foviance
  • Lyris HQ

The Web Analytics Report (Basic Edition, Site License) can help your team:

  • Save time in the selection process
