Unica & eMedia Issue Results of New Web Analytics Reader Survey

Integrating Web Analytics Data Into Marketing Solutions Is Biggest Challenge Among Web Analysts

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - September 9, 2009) - Unica Corporation (NASDAQ: UNCA), the recognized leader in marketing software solutions, today announced results from its recently conducted web analytics study, "The Web Analytics War: Reader Survey," co-sponsored by eMedia. The purpose of the survey was to learn more about the challenges that marketers face when managing creative projects, so that they are able to better tailor their products and services to suit the needs of both customers and prospects.

The approximately 200 marketers who comprise the survey respondents come from a diverse set of companies -- ranging from small to large across myriad industries with various traffic volumes. 72% of respondents noted that they lack a full-time resource focused on web analytics. 46% noted that their companies' biggest web analytics challenge was integration with other marketing solutions. Additionally, the biggest issue they faced with verifying data accuracy was difficulty drilling into web analytics data.

"Web analytics are no longer just increasingly important; they're essential to the success of marketing strategies and campaigns; and they're not only imperative for marketing departments, but demanded by business executives," said Akin Arikan, director of product marketing and strategy, Unica. "The results of this survey highlight that an advanced and integrated set of interactive marketing solutions are critical for marketers to effectively engage site visitors and increase campaign response and ROI. And as web analytics suites evolve, there is a greater emphasis on data transparency and auditability."
