It allows S2S integration. It's the appropriate choice out of all mobile app tracking software as it is very flexible, shows very accurate data, is easy to learn how to use the dashboards, and offers the option to create tailored audiences. It's not so well structured when it comes to reporting, as its dashboard doesn't allow downloading data in bulk by adding different filters.

Webtrends Analytics

Scenarios1. If you want to use web server log files as input to your web analytics, then Webtrends will provides a good product, with great ease of implementation. Don't even think about being cheap on hardware, and make sure Webtrends runs on real servers, not in a VM environment.2. If you want to use Data Tagging, similar to Google Analytics or Site Catalyst, Webtrends has a powerful product, just be prepared to pay.3. If you are new to Web Analytics, but it is the strategic direction, start with Webtrends on Premises.Questions to Ask1. What are you trying to accomplish?2. Can you place a dollar value on the benefit that you expect/need from Webtrends?3.Can you live with Webtrends running SaaS?

Pros

  • Tracking installs on mobile app campaigns on Android or iOS, as well as UAC campaigns.
  • Tracking in-app actions on our mobile campaigns.
  • Showing more accurate numbers, since it counts pure installs from new users only without counting re-installs,
  • Counts installs only after first opening of the app, while Google and Apple count also downloads even if the app doesn't get installed or opened after.

  • Control privacy, data sharing and competitive industrial knowledge using Webtrends on premises
  • Great control over custom reports, custom dimensions and metrics
  • Flexible tool which allows multiple methods of data capture. To my knowledge it was the first tool with a Tag Builder / Tag Management function built in via a supporting website.

Cons

  • The reporting dashboard is not very easy to navigate, it doesn't offer enough options.
  • You can't download granular level data for all channels at once. Adding this as an option would save a lot of time when analyzing the performance and doing reporting.

  • Requires careful setup and planning during implementation
  • If using web server logs, you're able to re-analyze historical data - but it takes time and careful planning/execution.
  • It would be great to have a fully implemented public test profile to send potential clients to see all the product's features
  • Wish it supported Microsoft HyperV virtualization. Last time I checked, only VMWare was supported for virtualization of on premises installations.

We heavily utilize the Analytics features, and for our purposes the On-Demand Analytics product is a good value, so there would need to be a compelling reason to switch to another vendor. Streams is a unique product and is particularly attractive due to its lack of overhead from a user experience and implementation standpoint.

If I could give it a 0, I would. Not having an intuitive user interface made it impossible to convince non-analytic business users to use the tool on their own. Even as a seasoned analyst, frequent calls were needed to get what should be simple tasks done. Account managers don't understand the tool either, and have to refer you to technical support

It is much better than average. Down time usually occurs because of a need to refresh the server on our end.

The v9 admin interface and v10 reporting interface work as well as expected, but have a tendency to be pokey, especially for bulky reports and whenever you're connected to wifi. I much prefer using the REST API for all reporting for this reason, which simply dumps out the data and doesn't bother with the user interface.

The support team (calling into the support line) is very knowledgeable and friendly. The issue is that you have to call in so often.

The in-person training was comprehensive enough to get you started, but I strongly recommend having a more experienced person when beginning with the tool.

Webtrends provides several free webinars over the course of the year, many of which I would expect to pay for. The people providing the webinars seem to have a good feel for real-world application of the product.

Careful planning and patience. Use a non-public test site to fine tune tags and reporting. Despite best laid plans, there will be surprises when you collect the data, run the analysis and begin generating reports using the tool. Perform a tag audit to ensure tags fire as desired.

Alternatives Considered

Kochava is the most popular one and has a better dashboard, offering many options for visualizing data. Adjust has a poor dashboard in comparison to Kochava, but offers easier integration with SDK and is cheaper. I don't think adjust shares device IDs, though. Its attribution is very accurate and offers very good solutions for fraud prevention

We evaluated Google Analytics, but we picked Webtrends as it offered better value for the price.

  • Time needed to implement and create dashboards that are useful
