Compete and Omniture Partner to Provide a Complete Picture of Online Effectiveness Integration of competitive benchmarking data brings new insights and actionability to Omniture customers
SALT LAKE CITY, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Omniture Summit 2010 -- Compete, a Kantar Media company , today announced a partnership with Omniture, an Adobe company and a leading provider of online business optimization software, to help marketers more efficiently analyze and take action on new online insights. By integrating Compete's Web-wide competitive intelligence data with Omniture's deep Web site analytics, the partnership puts the information marketers need to better develop, optimize and monetize Web sites at their fingertips.
Web analytics data excels at providing marketers with a deep understanding of what visitors do on their sites. However, the insights can be greatly enhanced with visibility into to how consumers behave on competitive Web properties. In addition, companies often lack any competitive or industry-level data against which they can benchmark their own online site performance. The Compete-Omniture partnership integrates Compete's leading panel-based digital measurement capabilities with Omniture's robust site-centric insights.
"Companies can more fully benefit from online marketing when their Web analytics data is complemented with the consumer behavior that is occurring on competitive sites," said Stephen DiMarco, chief marketing officer at Compete. "By enabling a comprehensive view of performance across both owned and competitive Web properties, our partnership with Omniture elevates the Web analytics to an even more strategic asset within the marketing function."
"The Omniture Online Marketing Suite was conceived from the beginning as an open platform able to integrate data from industry-leading partners like Compete to give customers ever more valuable and actionable insights," said Aseem Chandra, vice president of product marketing, Omniture Business Unit. "Integrating Compete's rich competitive intelligence and Web trend data into SiteCatalyst will help customers better identify their strengths and weaknesses and adjust their online marketing strategies accordingly."
Joint Omniture Site Catalyst and Compete PRO Enterprise customers can now use a simple, wizard-based interface to populate Omniture's Site Catalyst offering with their Compete PRO Web site portfolios. The integrated dashboard will pull data from Compete PRO's database of one million Web sites, integrating competitive Web analytics within Site Catalyst. The joint solution makes it faster and easier for companies to interpret the performance of their Web properties in the context of their competitors' performance, spot opportunities and mitigate marketing challenges.
