WebTrends provides an enterprise web analytics platform and, according to Forrester, has a strong focus on support for mobile and social channels and a very open platform. Webtrends competes directly with Adobe Site Catalyst, IBM Coremetrics. and comScore DigitalAnalytix.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/wH/pt/7E8ZZ9I1DXMU.PNGRespect the web analytics pioneer, Webtrends delivers!We used Webtrends On Premises with SDC and Tag Builder to analyze B2B, B2C and local government websites. Typically it is used by a several departments to determine the effectiveness of their outreach. It provides an alternative to 'free' web analytics tools and other paid hosted WA tools.,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.,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.,9,Positive: internal user education and awareness improved once a complete implementation was done. Solved many site navigation mysteries. Reduced marketer's guesswork because real visitor data intelligence was gleaned from new reports/analysis.,Adobe Analytics,Google Analytics,,2,Determine inbound traffic sources and keywords Determine customer path to desired information Determine website usage / validate outreach efforts,Validate website availability around the clock from local and international traffic sources. Find and diagnose previously unrecognized website usability issues and underlying database/ERP flaws. Developed a lightweight non-Javascript hybrid method of website traffic and revenue analysis using WT on-premises product.,Enhance data collection and reporting using custom reports, funnel analysis, content grouping features,9,Yes,Prior Experience with the Product,Ensure there is a real internal need for all the power Webtrends offers. Many installations may not need all its power and features nor have the resources to action upon insights gained.,Implemented in-house,Yes,Change management was a minor issue with the implementation,Determining how to correct previous installation vendor's assumptions and errors Educating IT about the need to ensure good data quality,10,Online training In-person training Self-taught,10,9,It is essential to do a test implementation after receiving training. You need this to validate your ideas and setup.,10,Careful planning and a test implementation to validate setup and ensure that resulting reports are what were expected.,Some - we have done small customizations to the interface,Yes - we have added extensive custom code,Yes,9,Yes,When I needed to roll back an installation when we tried to install the product on an unsupported platform despite having better guidance. They got us back to a running solution in a very short time without belittling us.,Custom product and campaign code lookups, query string substitution, custom reports Funnel / scenario analysis (if the funnel is well defined to begin with!) Data export (XLS, CSV),Technical expertise is required when implementing this product to the fullest extent of its capabilities. Don't be fooled by "pros" who have never implemented it before and don't underestimate implementation schedules, tagging requirements. Less technical users will need guidance from those well-versed in using the product reports interface,9,9,9,It is possible to analyze multiple websites (profiles) if the correct licensing is purchased. Pay attention to total page views when purchasing the license. It can be costly and time-consuming to add additional page views to the on-premises version if you run out of page views.,Yes,To get to a supported version of the product running on supported hardware To get new features/functionality,Faster analysis runs More sophisticated sementation without reanalysis,Yes,YesWebtrends - A Flexible and Nimble Open Platform for Enterprise Data AnalyticsWebtrends provides a platform that can accept any number of custom variables and can be adapted to fulfill a variety of business needs. Segmentation, purchase funnel, scenarios, dropoff and bounce rate are effective. Webtrends 10 integrates analytics data with 3rd party data including app stores, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. This provides a compelling case for programs that require insight into these data.,Webtrends is not great at providing statistical data for analysis. You need to enable Log File Delivery or create an analysis export to perform this. This could theoretically be done with Streams. Webtrends has difficulty identifying multi-visit users due to the inherent fragility of cookie-based tracking. Webtrends Analytics does not provide Pathing capabilities for segments, only for the aggregate. However, this can be worked around with Scenario functionality selectively fired by a tag management system. Segmentation by high-cardinality parameters tends to cause issues with table limits. Even after scrubbing and scrutinizing data, we commonly see up of 10K rows per dimension. Due to this, we use Webtrends Analytics to roll up data into larger segments and export all of our log data into our database for heavy duty number crunching.,Webtrends is able to identify the source of each visit and create reporting on user behavior. We're able to attribute activity from a variety of sources to determine effectiveness. The REST API is invaluable for pulling large volumes of trended data to identify where notable events occur. Streams provides ROI by providing immediate visibility into site activity, for any level of granularity that you're collecting in the Analytics product, without impacting the user experience. We're using this to create a proactive Care response team as well as resolve product issues remotely within seconds of it occurring on the site, so we can save customers from abandoning while they're still on the site.,9,8,20,2,Webtrends is used to identify segments of our traffic and report on each segment. so we are able to determine what is drawing interest within each segment of our visit population. Webtrends Streams allows us to identify issues on the site, as well as identify individual users who are encountering issues, so we can proactively reach out to them.,,,Vendor implemented Implemented in-house,10,Online training In-person training Self-taught,7,9,It can be done, especially by someone with experience with analytics. For a beginner, the tool is complex enough that it's (significantly) more time effective to get outside training.,If you work with custom data integrations, you'll likely be updating the analytics code on a monthly basis. The pace of change increases with data requirements, so a tag management platform to accommodate this is highly recommended.,No,9,8,10,8,Responsys. Hootsuite. Facebook. Twitter. DoubleClick. App stores. Proprietary data stores. Enterprise Data Warehouse.,,,We negotiate package deals primarily. It's easier to gain leverage to secure discounts when shopping for multiple products from the same vendor.On-premise version not as strong as SaaS product.It effectively measures transactions on the site. Currently, we measure primarily basic metrics such as visitors and site visits. We haven’t formalized a reporting/call to action for the data yet: It’s one of our biggest initiatives this year. Once the proper KPIs are established, it will provide the metrics to support the KPIs,It does not provide real time monitoring. We typically can look at data about 48 hours after it has occurred. This matters specifically for campaigns and for troubleshooting the site. The On Premises solution is not as robust as the On Demand solution which our security department is hesitant to use. The On Premise version has fewer of the innovations than On Demand, including integration with Sharepoint, Spaces, and social media. We are a health insurance company, so we are always cautious about releasing Protected Health Information (PHI). Since we are highly regulated, the consequences of a privacy breach are pretty severe, so we tend to be very conservative when sending data outside of our data environment. Being On Demand means are sending log files through the cloud which may or may not include PHI.,9,We have yet to tie our metrics to KPIs or ROIs,5,3,Measurement of the site: determining things like page views, visits, visitors, etc. Monitoring of member activity to drive improvements on high traffic areas Eventually, measure conversion through our new sales portal,9,No,Don't know,9,Online training,10,7,No,10,8,9,9,Yes, Microsoft Dynamics and KBMG. KBMG (http://www.kbmg.com/) is a marketing and analytics consultant we work with, and it would be nice to be able to integrate with their analytics platform.,N/A I was not involved with WebTrends at the timeWebTrends - Great Enterprise-Level ToolWebtrends always allowed for easy segmentation of the data. Implementation was not as challenging as other enterprise-level tools. Multi-channel analysis is easy to do within Webtrends, especially with recent additions of Social Media and other Attribution measurements.,Not as easy to implement as Google Analytics. There are not as many customer examples and documentation as other tools.,TBD,9,8,Analyzing site behavior to multiple web sites and web properties. Determining the success of the website to promote or sell various products.,,,Professional services company,9,In-person training,10,No,9Expensive and didn't do what we needed.It allows you to customize reporting based on customer channel. The reporting had the ability to give a visual representation and not just numbers.,Less campaign insight. No heat maps. No ability to do reporting based on several factors such as: did they receive an email from us, but then go to an affiliate site - where they ultimately made the purchase. (No campaign attribution). The product was quite expensive and did not do some of the critical things we needed. It was just not a good fit for us.,Ability to see more detailed reporting in regarding traffic and traffic sources.,1,6,2,2,To see insight into the metrics of the website. Where were we losing customers, the purchase funnel, bounce rate, and seeing how marketing campaigns were effective.,,,Implemented in-house,10,Online training Self-taught,10,It was very easy. They also had videos and how-to's.,There was some configuration for the reporting. The ability to form the reports that would give me the data I needed. However, once that was complete - I just ran the report when I needed the updated data.,No,10,7,10,10,,,If you are looking at an analytics suite, I would identify all of the items you want to track and be able to do within a platform. I would start with Google Analytics, as that is a free software. If you have basic metrics, try Google Analytics and then maybe adding a third party app like Crazy Egg for a heatmap on your site. Some companies don't need all of the bells and whistles that Omniture or Webrends can give. So be sure to identify your needs.

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.
