    Hi Tom, great list, but I would like to suggest you another platform that in Italy is very very commonly used: Shinystat (not linking so this doesn’t sound like a spam comment :)).

    It doesn’t just offer Web Analytics (and it is cookieless), but also APPs Analytics and a great Video Analytics suite, which is used by almost every Broadcasting company in my home country.

    Great list, it will be great to expand this with other analytics tool like

    Xiti (http://www.atinternet.com/en/) and Gemius (http://gemius.com/)

    (it’s not recommendation or similar, i just work with them, but they have some great features or better from some in this list)

  • http://www.valic.me/ Valentino Međimorec

    now i see that Xiti (AT Internet) is in list :)

    Excellent list indeed.

    One comment: Google Analytics (free edition) data tends to show up in reports within a few minutes unless it is a site with more than 500K visitors a day, at which point the data processing is slowe

    Oh I would have really have liked to see pros and cons in this article. For example, not provided in GA is a huge deal for reporting

    @TomDemers:disqus Thanks for the article. I would add SiteCore Digital Marketing Suite [DMS]. SiteCore is a big league .NET CMS that is Gartner Magic Quadrant. Used my many companies. Their DMS combines server side and java script analytics. Does a/b & multivariate. We use both GA & now going forward, DMS.

    thanks for this round-up, tom!

    Angelfish is a new analytics product that should also be on this list. It also directly processes the __utm.gif requests created by Google Analytics (and Urchin) tracking code.


  • Stacey Lee

    Hi Tom, I would like also to suggest this tool.

    Colibri Tool (http://colibritool.com).

    It is currently used by hundreds of customers from all around the world.

    Great post Tom! Have you also come across GoSquared for real-time analytics before? http://gosquared.com

    Confession – I’m one of the founders and I honestly feel it deserves a mention in this list, but I’ll leave that up to you to decide!

  • yaliatsnowplow

    Awesome list – many thanks!

    Another platform you might want to take a look at is ours – Snowplow Analytics http://snowplowanalytics.com/ :-). Any questions about it – don’t hesitate to give me a shout.

    Hi Tom, thanks for compiling such a great resource. I haven’t had a chance to download the Buyer’s Guide, so I’m not sure if it was mentioned there, but we find ClickTale (www.clicktale.com) to be an amazing analytics tool that provides valuable insights beyond straight stats like Google. From Conversion Funnels to real time movies of customer interactions, we’ve found it invaluable to the feedback required for user experience or content strategy.

  • larrytaylor

    This is what I need. SiteCore DMS should also be listed here.


  • http://www.gosquared.com/ James Gill

    Thanks for letting me know, Tom! All the best.

  • Yuri Martsynovskyy

    Hi Tom and thanks for the list! I would also suggest to take a look at our Deep Log Analyzer (http://www.deep-software.com). There is a free version for smaller websites.

  • Xabina Carreau Labériotte

    Hi Tom, thanks a lot for this accurate work! just 2 things that could be clarified for AT Internet, we do provide unique visitors following via segmentation or other methods. And we use exact metrics (not sampling), this info was incomplete in you table.
