Adobe Analytics typically wins on flexibility (aka ability to customize the system to your particular business)
Google Analytics typically wins on technical user base (aka ability to easily hire teams with the expertise to support the product)
IBM typically wins on uniformity/standardization of deployment and industry benchmarking (aka proven, standard deployment process leading to less error prone implementation)
Site Catalyst - Compared to IBM, definitely a much more intensive implementation.

Compared to Google: the main asset of IBM compared to GA is the fact that you can go down to the visitor level in Analytics and run much more precise analysis. Also, in Google the data calculation and attribution models can be unclear and therefore difficult to trust.
Coremetrics is renowed for it's great support and easy implementation which - along with cost - was a deciding factor in many situations.
For instance Google Analytics will not allow you to nail a visitor and trace his journey from the start of his visit to the end of it. Moreover we are, with IBM Analytics for example able to identify the visitors that came multiple times in their lifetime to buy online. This allows us to study the customer life cycle and link this with the email that we send them to re-engage them after a while.
An other strength that IBM Analytics has compared to Google Analytics is the ability to have 50 attributes per tags and therefore adapt the tracking to the company.
The weak point however is the price of the solution.

IBM acquired Coremetrics in 2010, and has since re-branded the platform to the IBM Digital Marketing Optimization Solution. This cloud-based solution includes IBM Digital Analytics, the core analytical product, as well as several add-on modules, including Benchmark, Product Recommendations, Lifecycle, Multisite, and more. IBM has integrated the Digital Marketing Optimization platform with other solutions, like WebSphere Commerce and Portal for ecommerce, IBM Campaign and Interact (acquired from Unica in 2010) for cross-channel campaign management, IBM Tealeaf (acquired in 2012) for customer experience management, and much more. IBM continues to integrate the Digital Marketing Optimization platform into many other solutions as well, from business intelligence tools, to social media analytics, and more.
IBM Digital Marketing Optimization primarily competes with other enterprise-level digital analytics solutions like Adobe Omniture, Google Analytics, WebTrends, and more.
