    office, geography and manager -- that provide an effective approach to
    segmentation and identifying power users, teams, and groups
--  Enhanced list measurement - Webtrends for SharePoint captures this
    important and hard to measure information automatically
--  Community analytics - that enable measurement of new community sites,
    content, microblogs and social actions for deeper understanding of

"Increasingly, companies are realizing that measuring SharePoint leads
to more effective, efficient intranets and more enthusiastic
collaboration and increased productivity. Or, in other words, truly
social enterprises," said Jeff Seacrist, vice president, partner
solutions, Webtrends. "Webtrends enables not just measurement and
insight into SharePoint, but the integration of SharePoint analytics
across the marketing ecosystem. The value and ROI that organizations
can realize from measuring the social enterprise and enhancing
productivity is an incredible and largely untapped resource." 
Webtrends continues to benefit from the strong growth of the social
enterprise market, estimated by IDC to reach $4.6 billion in 2016, by
adding a wave of new customers and key industry partners. 
Over the past year alone, Webtrends enjoyed double-digit growth in
its SharePoint solutions business, adding more than 40 new customers
using its Webtrends for SharePoint solution including organizations
such as Brookfield, PG&E, Pfizer, Constellation Energy, Foresters,
Avanade, Archer Daniels Midland, Clorox, Sanofi and more.  
"Sanofi uses Webtrends Analytics not only for SharePoint to track Web
Applications and Site Collections, but also to gather all Sanofi's
digital metrics in one place. This enables us to analyze and compare
visitor usage and behavior across all communication channels
including web, mobile, social and event driven activity," said
Dominique Lacan, hosting manager, Sanofi. 
Additionally, Webtrends has built out a network of partnerships with
industry leaders in SharePoint, such as Axceler, Blue Rooster,
Brightstarr, Avanade, Infusion, and NewsGator, to more deeply
integrate analytics directly into a wide range of current and future
SharePoint and social enterprise applications and capabilities.
