SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Webtrends, the global leader in digital intelligence, today announced significant enhancements to its groundbreaking Webtrends Streams solution, including Session Streams, full-session scoring and an integration with Responsys (NASDAQ: MKTG), a leading provider of email and relationship-based marketing solutions. Launched in December, Webtrends Streams is the first scalable streaming architecture pushing real-time visitor and event-level data into the marketing ecosystem to drive immediate action.
The proliferation of mobile and social channels, along with the increasing demand to launch and run in-the-moment dynamic campaigns, is driving the need to have more direct messaging with visitors at the right time. Webtrends Streams allows customers to increase engagement and conversion with visitors while they are on a site, no matter which device or platform they are using, fueling relevant content and offers based on historical profiles and in-session behavior. The solution also tracks and responds to customer events and behavior without a time delay as data is pushed to the marketer as activity occurs. This enables marketers to adjust content and offers based on customer behavior, when responding in seconds matters.
"It's a mistake to treat real-time analytics as reporting eye candy, because the real goal is instant insight that drives immediate action.... Digital marketing interactions play out at increasingly high speeds, reducing the time organizations have to identify and react to opportunities to optimize customer interactions," wrote Joe Stanhope, principal analyst, Forrester Research in a Forrester report.(1)
Webtrends is announcing the following powerful new features with Webtrends Streams:
- Session Streams - Customers will instantly have access to the complete rich visitor session details about each event during the visit, as each event occurs, while the visitor is still onsite. Additionally, high-value session summary information will be available in the Stream including the number of product views, events, purchases and abandonment status specific to that individual session. Access to this information as-it-happens will provide valuable business insight for marketing professionals and optimize offer relevance and product recommendations when consumed by online targeting and remarketing applications.
- Full-Session Scoring - Leveraging the powerful Session Streams data, Webtrends Optimize, which allows customers to test, segment and target content on their sites, will be packaged with Webtrends Streams to provide instant clarity about the full value of an individual visitor while they are still onsite. Until now, marketers have used historical information to determine the value of a visitor after they have left a site. Full-session scoring will enable high-precision content testing and targeting based upon the actions a visitor takes before they leave a site. For example, customers could specify that visitors who are still onsite, have added more than one item to their cart, but fewer than three items, and have not yet made a purchase, will be shown a special offer.
- Webtrends Streams with Responsys - A first-of-its-kind packaged solution with Responsys will enable marketers to take action on any as-it-occurs visitor behavior, such as browsing, purchases or cart abandonment with immediate remarketing campaigns. By being able to respond in a timely and relevant manner via email, mobile or social channels with relevant offers or promotions, brands will experience improved engagement, higher conversion rates and optimized ROI.
Webtrends Push API
Webtrends Streams offers a push API that enables easy consumption of the stream in powerful data visualizations, machine-to-machine solutions, or delivered directly into a customer's big data solution. The Webtrends Streams API provides a flexible method for filtering, tailoring or configuring the stream to any specific needs.
Sessions Streams is in use by Webtrends Early Adopters today and will be generally available by early Q2 2013 along with Responsys integration. Full-session Scoring with Optimize will be available by the end of Q2 2013.
Comments About the News:
"Delivering the right message to the right audience at the right time is the goal of all digital marketers, and the key to creating successful programs and campaigns. To-date, marketers have been working with 'real-time' solutions that experienced delays of up to minutes or hours after an event. This has cost them customers, conversions and ultimately ROI. Now, the rich data Webtrends Streams provides combined with these new integrations, enable marketers to take critical action on what is trending across their digital properties in the moment."
-- Alex Yoder, CEO, Webtrends
"We are proud to be partnering with Webtrends to offer an integration with Streams. For too long, marketers have been searching for a way to have their digital intelligence fuel their email campaigns, not just immediately after an event happens, but as it's happening. Webtrends is finally fulfilling the promise of as-it-occurs remarketing and our integration is the logical next step."
-- Scott Olrich, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer, Responsys
"By using Webtrends Streams, we are able to see the geographic location of our customers and the items on our site they are interested in as they are shopping. This has allowed us to optimize our content to better meet their needs and increase conversion. Streams is a game-changing technology and we're excited about the enhancements announced today -- they will allow us to take our digital intelligence one step further by driving information back into our marketing ecosystem."
-- Jason Miller, VP of Technology, Motorcycle Superstore

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

[session] Focusing on Time-to-Value in Big Data Deployments By @AndyWarfield | @BigDataExpo #BigData
As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people.

With microservices, SOA and distributed architectures becoming more popular, it is becoming increasingly harder to keep track of where time is spent in a distributed application when trying to diagnose performance problems. Distributed tracing systems attempt to address this problem by following application requests across service boundaries, persisting metadata along the way that provide context for fine-grained performance monitoring.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
