Omniture Introduces a Breakthrough in Customer Analytics With Launch of Discover 2

Omniture Delivers Real-Time Customer Analytics on a Single, Unified Platform

OREM, UT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 15, 2007 -- Omniture, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMTR), a leading provider of online business optimization software, today unveiled Omniture Discover 2.0 -- a breakthrough in on-demand customer analytics. Designed for companies to visually explore large amounts of online customer interaction data in real-time, Discover helps business analysts uncover new business opportunities, devise new customer acquisition strategies and drive more revenue from online marketing campaigns.

A key obstacle facing companies today is their inability to measure, segment and analyze customer data fast enough to take advantage of new market opportunities. The Discover technology provides direct access to granular data from any angle and at any level using business visualizations. Now, companies no longer have to make trade-offs between speed and level of detail -- they can have both.

Discover is an integral component of the Omniture Online Business Optimization Platform™ and operates on a single data set with Omniture SiteCatalyst® Web analytics, providing the industry's most complete, real-time customer analytics solution. The solution empowers all levels of business users -- from executives using dashboards to managers using operational reports to analysts performing free-form data exploration and segmentation -- to have an integrated view of data so they can make more accurate, timely and insightful decisions.

"Multiple analytics platforms and technologies can create big reporting problems for companies," said Bill Gassman, research director for Gartner. "Industry advances in data integration, business intelligence and analytics make it possible for users in different roles to work off a common set of information. With shared information comes greater insight and better decisions."

"Discover is superior to other approaches because of its virtually unlimited power, flexibility and ease-of-use," said Brigham Graff, director of website marketing, "Now, we can get real-time insights to create customer segments on-the-fly and make immediate changes to our marketing campaigns that maximize every dollar of our online advertising investment."

    compare multiple customer segments and key performance metrics to identify
    and optimize the most profitable customer segments

    volume which help businesses to improve site design to drive an increase in

    pages viewed, trips booked, etc.
--  Virtual Focus Group: Provides deep insight into the unique site
    experience of an individual customer within a selected segment to better
    understand their requirements and preferences in order to make changes in
    real-time site design, content and promotions to enhance the customer
