Calling All Web Analysts

Check out our one-stop, comprehensive report card on an entire stable of Web analytics products.

Feedback from Business Intelligence Pipeline readers tells me that you appreciate our reviews of BI tools and applications. But what happens when you want to compare and contrast several tools at once? That's what we're delivering -- comprehensively -- on one category of BI tools this week: Web analytics platforms.

A piece this week from sister publication Network Computing takes an in-depth look at seven major Web analytics products, giving you ratings for all of them. I think you'll find that none of the vendors involved get a free ride from our experts' criticisms. You'll learn about the good and the bad.

We're also providing an interactive scorecard, available here, that gives a side-by-side view of the seven platforms. Best of all, it lets you, the readers, weigh in and grade the Web analytics tools yourself, including their e-commerce analysis, administrative flexibility, ease of use, price and professional services.

There's another review to check out this week. QlikView 7.0 is a BI tool that's built around a client-centric architecture and designed to let users create lists that represent the dimensions and measures they want to analyze. Check out the story for all the pros and cons of the system.
