Adobe acquired Omniture in 2009 and re-branded the platform as SiteCatalyst. It is now part of Adobe Marketing Cloud along with other products such as social marketing, test and targeting, and tag management. SiteCatalyst is one of the leading vendors in the web analytics category and is particularly strong in combining web analytics with other digital marketing capabilities like audience management and data management. Adobe Analytics also includes predictive marketing capabilities that help users find trends in customer behavior patterns leading up to conversion. According to the vendor, these insights can help predict which campaigns will be most successful.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/yp/X4/UO2UCI37TC30.PNGAdobe SiteCatalyst: Great software, difficult learning curveProvides highly detailed reports on very specific metrics.

Most clients buying the product are ignorant of its features and as a result end up buying the wrong stuff and paying a price for it later. I suggest going to training before you buy the product or reading as much as you can about the product ahead of time. Even better, talk to a product expert and have them coach you throughout the buying process.

For the most part, Adobe SiteCatalyst reports work ok, but there are cases in which reports take a long time to return. These cases are usually when too much data has been stored in Conversion Variables (eVars).
