 iGATE Capital Company, today announced the release of the development edition

     The eConsumer development edition is sold as separate components firms can
 pick and choose from, or as a package for retail clients.  The components
 include:
 
      1. The Network Collector -- a highly scaleable, low overhead, packet
          sniffer that collects consumer interactions with a web site and
          streams the results either to a rules pre-processor or an enhanced
          log file format.
      2. The Commerce Module -- which applies business rules to clickstream
          information collected and stores that information in a relational
          transaction database.
      3. The Clickstream ETL Module -- which extracts and transforms
          transactional clickstream information and loads it into a standard
          star-schema relational warehouse.
      4. The eConsumer Reporting Module -- Standard pre-built reports and
          multidimensional cubes using Crystal Reports and Microsoft OLAP
          services.
 
     "There are many tools for analyzing clickstream data and personalizing web
 sites out there, but they could be even better with more clickstream
 information," said Viv Penninti, president and CEO of IRG.  "With eConsumer,
 web analytics and personalization applications will be able to integrate a
 best-of-breed clickstream collection tool that provides them with content
 level clickstream information they have never had access to before."
     "eConsumer provides clients with an additional option for capturing
 clickstream data that can be used by Personify's profiling and analytics
 platform," said Trevor Rubel, director of product strategy at Personify.  "The
 eConsumer solution allows Personify's technology to create richer, more
 in-depth visitor profiles than would be possible using traditional log files.
 As a result, our clients can execute more accurate analytics, more effective
 CRM and more targeted personalization initiatives."
     The eConsumer development edition is available now for Linux (Network
 Collector) and NT / SQL Server (Database & rules engine).  Additional
 platforms (Sun Solaris & Oracle) will be available mid-year.  Pricing starts
 at $25,000 for basic clickstream collection for a site with 5 million hits per
 day.
