Net.Genesis has announced the latest version of its net.Analysis product, which has now evolved into an "enterprise Ebusiness intelligence" tool.
net.Analysis started out as a simple server log analyser but president and CEO Larry Bohn explained that the product has changed due to the increasing need for business information about a company's Web site. The new version of the software addresses this by correlating site usage statistics with back office business data, for example to help business managers find the links between Web site usage and marketing or sales initiatives.
net.Analysis 4 includes more than 150 template reports designed for the different needs of marketers, site administrators and other business managers, and the ReportSite ready-built intranet helps deliver this information throughout the organisation.
As well as analysing visitor behaviour, dynamic site content, search engine keywords and advertising click-throughs, net.Analysis handles the activity from ftp, Lotus Domino and streaming media servers, such as RealServer, as well as the common Web servers. Administrators can set up automated log analysis, and automate the process of generating and delivering reports.
Version 4 has the net.Instrument component, which integrates Web site statistics with corporate customer data, such as that held in legacy databases or ERP systems, to provide drill-down and data correlation capabilities.
Also new in version 4 is support for Sybase's Adaptive Server Enterprise relational database. net.Analysis already supports Informix and Microsoft SQL Server, and support for Oracle will be available in early 1999.
net.Analysis 4 will be available next quarter for Windows NT, Sun Solaris and IBM AIX. The NT version will cost #5,325, while the Unix versions will sell for #6,670.
