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.

Tealium has announced the general availability of Tealium Social Media, a new measurement service for social media and online PR that’s tightly integrated into web analytics. The service is designed for marketing professionals who use social media and online PR as marketing vehicles to generate awareness and demand, and require side-by-side comparison with other marketing channels.
How does it work? Consider this scenario:
A visitor is in the market for CRM software and comes across a blog comparing various CRM programs. The blog mentions a number of CRM applications that the visitor had no previous knowledge of, including SugarCRM and NetSuite. Because of the great feedback in the blog, the visitor decides to go to SugarCRM by doing a search for “sugar crm” on Google. This leads the visitor to sugarcrm.com, where the visitor requests a personal demo.
With traditional web analytics, this conversion would be attributed to Google. With Tealium Social Media, the conversion will also be attributed to the original blog that started everything.
Tealium Social Media is a web analytics plug-in that is integrated into popular web analytics solutions: Google Analytics, SiteCatalyst, Unice NetInsight, WebTrends, Coremetrics, etc. This means you can get your social media ROI measurement directly inside your existing web analytics account.
