Omniture Announces Mobile Analytics for Powering Marketing on Devices Such as Apple(R) iPhone(TM) 3G and BlackBerry(R) From RIMOmniture SiteCatalyst Advances Mobile Internet Marketing Through Latest Release (July 23, 2008)
OREM, UT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 07/23/08 -- Omniture, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMTR), a leading provider of online business optimization software, today announced the latest version of Omniture SiteCatalyst® that advances mobile analytics capabilities businesses need to increase the performance of mobile marketing campaigns.
While mobile Internet usage is seeing rapid growth throughout the world, marketers have been limited in their ability to understand and reach this expanding audience. Omniture's mobile analytics provides business insight to optimize mobile site design, content, marketing campaigns and user experience for the mobile Internet visitor based on attributes such as their device type, location, video and audio formats. As a result, mobile marketers can provide a better experience -- driving loyalty, brand and conversion.
"More than ever before, consumers are using mobile Internet devices for shopping, banking, travel, news and entertainment," said Bob Nieme, CEO of Adversitement, one of the Netherlands' leading e-marketing optimization consultancies with more than 150 clients. "We are actively consulting with our clients to seize the growing mobile Internet opportunity. By using mobile analytics to know and understand what mobile audiences want, our clients can optimize their customers' online experience."
According to mobile industry research, worldwide shipments of smartphones are expected to grow from 164.7 million units in 2008 to 363.2 million units in 2012 (IDC, "Worldwide Converged Mobile Device," Doc # 212932, June 2008). Research firm Gartner expects worldwide mobile advertising spending to increase from $1.7 billion in 2007 to $12.8 billion in 2011 ("Dataquest Insight: How to Move the Mobile Advertising Market Forward," by Tole J. Hart and Andrew Frank, March 31, 2008). In their most recently reported quarters, RIM reported shipping 5.4 million devices (June 25, 2008), while Apple reported shipping 717,000 iPhone units (July 21, 2008).
"We believe the mobile Internet market is the fastest growing channel today and is expected to be one of the largest ever," said Josh James, CEO and co-founder at Omniture. "Savvy businesses are using the mobile channel to create a unique Internet experience that meets or exceeds the PC Web experience. As mobile visitors make up a larger share of the online audience, we believe mobile analytics will play a more integral role in capturing market share and gaining a competitive advantage."
