Webtrends Re-Imagines Digital Marketing With Significant Enhancements to Webtrends Streams(TM)

Integrations and Session Streams Power the Next Generation of Digital Intelligence for Marketers

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.

Availability
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

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale.
