Omniture and Commscore have announced a strategic partner relationship to deliver a unified digital audience measurement system. Specifically designed to meet the unique demands of the digital advertising world, the offering will combine the power of Omniture’s Web analytics with comScore’s new Media Metrix 360 hybrid audience measurement to help provide publishers and advertisers with a unified and comprehensive view of online audiences.
Two of the keys to implementing a successful digital marketing initiative are the ability to measure and analyse online marketing performance and to capture accurate views of audience reach across multiple information sources.
To date, publishers and advertisers use two primary sources for measuring the impact of digital advertising – Web analytics and panel-based audience measurement.
Because the two measurement methodologies have disparate objectives and employ different data collection technologies, the resulting dissimilar metrics can cause confusion and uncertainty among publishers and advertisers.
This strategic partner relationship blends these two methodologies in a highly automated way to create a unified approach for audience measurement designed to enable publishers to represent themselves in a more comprehensive manner to advertisers, and for advertisers to better optimise their media planning with the benefit of more extensive media reach data.

Today Adobe announced its acquisition of Omniture for USD $1.8 Billion.
Now let’s go back a few months, when WPP announced a USD $25 million investment in Omniture. http://willscullypower.wordpress.com/2009/01/29/wpp-to-invest-25-million-in-omniture/
Why do you think WPP invested in Omniture? http://willscullypower.wordpress.com/2009/02/04/wpp-going-after-control-of-your-data/
So today, what is this announcement about?
In my opinion, its about control of more data.
Omniture controls tons of aggregate data, which is captured by cooking visitors browsers. With consumers getting smarter about how to delete their cookies, the value of the data and analytics starts to deplete.
So how does a company like Omniture solve the cookie deletion problem? Simple, store the data in the flash object, making it hard(er) for consumers to find and delete, thus making their dataset more accurate and ultimately more valuable.
Who ows Flash? Adobe.
This is all about control over consumers data.
And who are Adobe & Omniture up against in this space.
You guessed it.

Back in March Omniture announced our $25K Partner Developer Challenge. The challenge offered first and second place prizes of $15K and $10K respectively, plus the opportunity to promote the winning applications to Omniture customers.
Finalists were selected recently and they have recently announced three winners, one for first prize, and tie for second prize.
Finalists were chosen based on three core criteria which they call the “three C’s”: Commercial value – are their customers or other developers likely to see value in the application?; Creativity – is this something interesting and new, or is it a rehashing of an old idea? Consumability – is it well-documented? Is it well-understood what the application is and what it does? After evaluating submissions based on these criteria, their platform product leadership team selected three winners.

On-demand behavioral analytics provider Quantivo recently announced a product to integrate with Omniture’s Web analytics solution SiteCatalyst.
Whereas Omniture tracks the number of visitors to a company’s Web site, Quantivo’s integration product, which Chief Executive Officer Brian Kelly calls “the adapter,” will help SiteCatalyst users make sense of the identities of those visitors.
In doing so, companies can better understand customer behavioral patterns — based on Web-site visits, transactions, marketing responses, and other events — and improve the targeting accuracy of marketing messages and on-site recommendations.
According to Kelly, trends in online customer behaviors are emerging, changing, and disappearing so quickly that companies now demand a solution that can handle a sudden influx of data and quickly turn that data into something meaningful.
“Big massive trends develop and diminish within a week,” Kelly says. “You don’t have time for some Ph.D. statistician to build a predictive model. [Oftentimes], it’s not something you can predict.”
In other words, while historical transaction data (and common sense) may help predict that sweater sales rise in the winter, that information is of little use for a retailer hoping to foresee which color will be most popular.
