FRAMINGHAM (07/27/2000) - WebTrends Corp. next week will update its suite of Web traffic and link analysis tools to provide speedier reporting on larger amounts of data, along with several other enhancements.
WebTrends Enterprise Suite 5.0 allows Web site managers to process traffic information for sites that attract up to 45 million unique visitors per day.
With Web sites gathering as much as 50 gigabytes a day of traffic information, WebTrends has revamped its database system to analyze that data at a much faster rate. Company officials say version 5.0 conducts log file analysis 200% faster than the previous version.
"Our customers want to pull all the possible intelligence out of their visitor data," says Dan Wolff, product line manager for e-business management at WebTrends.
Wolff points out that the software provides 250 different charts and graphs to analyze the data. "We're never fast enough for our customers," he says.
Version 5.0 also features:
- Support for Apple Computer Inc.'s QuickTime Server streaming media product.
- Link analysis for Web pages dynamically generated by Java scripts.
- New time and frequency monitoring for error messages.
- Integration with Vignette Software Corp.'s Story Server via a special data conduit product that costs an additional $12,000.
"This is a huge release for this product," Wolff says. "We won't have another release of this significance for the rest of the year."
WebTrends Enterprise Suite 5.0 will ship on August 1 and costs $1,999 per Web server.
Based in Portland, Ore., WebTrends has provided Web site traffic analysis tools since 1993. WebTrends has 40,000 customers including American Express Co., Dow Jones and NASA.
