Webtrends Re-Imagines Digital Marketing With Significant Enhancements to Webtrends Streams(TM)

Integrations and Session Streams Power the Next Generation of Digital Intelligence for Marketers

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Webtrends, the global leader in digital intelligence, today announced significant enhancements to its groundbreaking Webtrends Streams solution, including Session Streams, full-session scoring and an integration with Responsys (NASDAQ: MKTG), a leading provider of email and relationship-based marketing solutions. Launched in December, Webtrends Streams is the first scalable streaming architecture pushing real-time visitor and event-level data into the marketing ecosystem to drive immediate action.

The proliferation of mobile and social channels, along with the increasing demand to launch and run in-the-moment dynamic campaigns, is driving the need to have more direct messaging with visitors at the right time. Webtrends Streams allows customers to increase engagement and conversion with visitors while they are on a site, no matter which device or platform they are using, fueling relevant content and offers based on historical profiles and in-session behavior. The solution also tracks and responds to customer events and behavior without a time delay as data is pushed to the marketer as activity occurs. This enables marketers to adjust content and offers based on customer behavior, when responding in seconds matters.

"It's a mistake to treat real-time analytics as reporting eye candy, because the real goal is instant insight that drives immediate action.... Digital marketing interactions play out at increasingly high speeds, reducing the time organizations have to identify and react to opportunities to optimize customer interactions," wrote Joe Stanhope, principal analyst, Forrester Research in a Forrester report.(1)

Webtrends is announcing the following powerful new features with Webtrends Streams:

  • Session Streams - Customers will instantly have access to the complete rich visitor session details about each event during the visit, as each event occurs, while the visitor is still onsite. Additionally, high-value session summary information will be available in the Stream including the number of product views, events, purchases and abandonment status specific to that individual session. Access to this information as-it-happens will provide valuable business insight for marketing professionals and optimize offer relevance and product recommendations when consumed by online targeting and remarketing applications.
  • Full-Session Scoring - Leveraging the powerful Session Streams data, Webtrends Optimize, which allows customers to test, segment and target content on their sites, will be packaged with Webtrends Streams to provide instant clarity about the full value of an individual visitor while they are still onsite. Until now, marketers have used historical information to determine the value of a visitor after they have left a site. Full-session scoring will enable high-precision content testing and targeting based upon the actions a visitor takes before they leave a site. For example, customers could specify that visitors who are still onsite, have added more than one item to their cart, but fewer than three items, and have not yet made a purchase, will be shown a special offer.
  • Webtrends Streams with Responsys - A first-of-its-kind packaged solution with Responsys will enable marketers to take action on any as-it-occurs visitor behavior, such as browsing, purchases or cart abandonment with immediate remarketing campaigns. By being able to respond in a timely and relevant manner via email, mobile or social channels with relevant offers or promotions, brands will experience improved engagement, higher conversion rates and optimized ROI.

Webtrends Push API
Webtrends Streams offers a push API that enables easy consumption of the stream in powerful data visualizations, machine-to-machine solutions, or delivered directly into a customer's big data solution. The Webtrends Streams API provides a flexible method for filtering, tailoring or configuring the stream to any specific needs.

Availability
Sessions Streams is in use by Webtrends Early Adopters today and will be generally available by early Q2 2013 along with Responsys integration. Full-session Scoring with Optimize will be available by the end of Q2 2013.

Comments About the News:
"Delivering the right message to the right audience at the right time is the goal of all digital marketers, and the key to creating successful programs and campaigns. To-date, marketers have been working with 'real-time' solutions that experienced delays of up to minutes or hours after an event. This has cost them customers, conversions and ultimately ROI. Now, the rich data Webtrends Streams provides combined with these new integrations, enable marketers to take critical action on what is trending across their digital properties in the moment."
-- Alex Yoder, CEO, Webtrends

"We are proud to be partnering with Webtrends to offer an integration with Streams. For too long, marketers have been searching for a way to have their digital intelligence fuel their email campaigns, not just immediately after an event happens, but as it's happening. Webtrends is finally fulfilling the promise of as-it-occurs remarketing and our integration is the logical next step."
-- Scott Olrich, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer, Responsys

"By using Webtrends Streams, we are able to see the geographic location of our customers and the items on our site they are interested in as they are shopping. This has allowed us to optimize our content to better meet their needs and increase conversion. Streams is a game-changing technology and we're excited about the enhancements announced today -- they will allow us to take our digital intelligence one step further by driving information back into our marketing ecosystem."
-- Jason Miller, VP of Technology, Motorcycle Superstore

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market.
