"The fact that Webtrekk offers a complete software plus DWH solution should make the notion of offering their own DWH, or at least having a tightly-integrated partner, a part of the discussion among other online/digital analytics competitors," said Cotrupe. "New entrants could use such a hardware and software strategy to differentiate themselves from me-too analytics providers and even other real-time analytics players. Thus, Webtrekk sets the bar higher for market entrants than it was even 18 months ago. Anyone hoping to compete had better equip themselves with real-time, mobile, video, social and even DWH capabilities if they hope to keep up."In recognition of these factors, Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan is pleased to present Webtrekk with the 2012 Global Technology Innovation Award for Real-Time Analytics.
