OREM, Utah – December 12, 2006– Omniture, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMTR), a leading provider of online business optimization software, today announced the immediate availability of Omniture Genesis—a new “Plug and Play” solution designed to reduce the complexity of measuring online marketing campaigns and increase results by automating the integration of marketing applications into the Omniture Online Business Optimization platform. Omniture also announced that 30 companies have achieved Accredited Application Partner status and are included in the inaugural launch of the solution.
To date, online marketing measurement has been inconsistent and hard to compare. Through Omniture Genesis, marketers can now access pre-configured wizards for over 30 applications, allowing them to integrate their marketing environment into one standard view. This will not only save time previously spent trying to manually connect these programs, but will also help them consolidate measurement and reporting, identify and target the most meaningful customer segments as well as take the most relevant actions to optimize customer engagement and loyalty.
According to the June 2006 Forrester Research report entitled Marketing Technology Adoption 2006, management’s marching orders to marketing are clear: Integrate your activities, execute them more efficiently, and measure results. Forrester believes that, in order for this to happen, firms must manage and execute the marketing process within a single application framework, and on top of an infrastructure that is itself integrated.
“The era of Web 2.0 has changed the rules of marketing and new ways of engaging customers and enriching their experience are now critical for business success,” said Josh James, CEO and co-founder of Omniture. “Companies are realizing they must integrate their marketing environments much more quickly and easily. Omniture Genesis was designed to specifically address that need.”
