Local analytics powerhouse, WebTrends (@webtrends) will be hosting their third Lunch 2.0 on May 11, 2011.
Not that a Lunch 2.0 needs one, but the occasion is the launch of their newest product, Analytics 10, a tool that unifies web, social and mobile analytics into a single package. Win.
They’ll have Analytics 10 available to test-drive, if you’re interested, but if you’re not, no worries, the usual free-form networking will be in full swing as well. Maybe if we’re lucky, the sun will make an appearance, so we can bask on the deck.
When you think of Webtrends, you likely think of Web analytics. And that’s no surprise. The Portland-based company has been a leader in the world of Web analytics for more than a decade.
But it’s not highly likely you think of social or mobile apps. Well, until today. Meet Webtrends Apps, the results of acquiring San Francisco based Transpond. Read More
[HTML2]As more and more Portland types begin to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams, there has become a need for locations where small teams can work side by side—without it taking a great deal of investment to make it happen. To support this growing market, we’ve seen reasonably priced office space like the Leftbank Project and Olympic Mills, coworking locations like NedSpace and Souk, and hybrid workspaces like the Portland Incubator Experiment (PIE).
Now, Webtrends is doing its part to help small businesses launch by offering up an incubator of its own—Webtrends 101, a space designed specifically for fledgling Portland digital marketing companies. Read More
Yesterday, about 150 people gathered at Webtrends’ downtown office for a Lunch 2.0 co-hosted by Network Redux (@networkredux) and Webtrends (@webtrends).
The weather did not cooperate with tentative plans to enjoy the balcony off the Webtrends cafeteria on the 16th floor, but no one seemed to mind much. There will be other opportunities.
Tavola PDX provided the food, which was quite tasty, and the first hour was the standard Lunch 2.0 milling around and networking.
At around 1 PM, our own Rick (@turoczy) kicked off a panel consisting of Garett Stenson (@garettstenson) of Network Redux, Thomas Brenneke (@tbrenneke), of Network Redux, and Justin Kistner (@justinkistner), of Webtrends. Read More
When I announced that Network Redux (@networkredux) and Webtrends (@webtrends) would be co-hosting Lunch 2.0 on June 16, I never thought we’d have to cross our fingers for a nice day .
But here we are in mid-June, hoping for the first 80-degree day of the year.
Anyway, let’s hope for a great sunny day for Wednesday, so we can all enjoy the balcony at Webtrends.
Aside from the usual networking and food, the co-hosts have an interesting agenda planned for you.
[HTML1]We here in Portland are incredibly familiar with the “too many good events to attend” phenomenon. It happens to us practically every day. Trying to be three places at once to have interesting conversations with interesting people. I know. Rough life. And it gets even worse when you think about events happening elsewhere.
If only there were some way to soak up all of that good information about all of those events in a concentrated way. If only. Well, thanks to Justin Kistner ( @justinkistner ) and Webtrends ( @webtrends ), now there is. Tonight, gathering around 6 and starting around 7, we’ll be discussing the what’s what with four interesting events that happened outside of Portland: Twitter Chirp, Facebook f8, Inside Social Apps, and iPadDevCamp.

Wow. That was fast. It was only a few weeks ago that Portland-based Webtrends announced the acquisition of Seattle-based Widemile. And now Webtrends has released the Widemile multivariate testing functionality as Webtrends Optimize.
Multivari-whoosa-whatsis? Don’t worry. It’s not as hard as it sounds. In fact, Webtrends has focused on making it as simple and straightforward as possible. Heck, it sounds like even I could use it. Read More
[HTML2]Fresh off the news of the Widemile acquisition, Portland-based Webtrends rolled out the latest version of their Web analytics software, Webtrends Analytics 9.
Now in a day and age when folks can get Web analytics for free—or at a very low cost—you might think that an upgrade to the Webtrends offering might fall a little flat.
Well, think again, my friend. The feedback on Webtrends 9 has been overwhelmingly positive. Thanks to their opening up the platform to other data streams—and in so doing, helping folks do a better job of understanding what’s happening on their sites. Read More
[HTML2]Portland-based Webtrends—arguably the leading company focused on helping other companies figure out what people are doing on their Web sites—is having a renaissance of sorts. They’ve refreshed their executive team, re-engaged with the Portland tech startup community, and signed some impressive partnerships. Heck, they’ve even started a little controversy. But perhaps most impressive—especially in a time of low-cost or free Web analytics software—is the fact that they continue to build a successful Web analytics business.
How successful? Well, successful enough to engage in M&A activity. You see, they just picked up Seattle-based Widemile. Read More
[HTML2]Long absent from the burgeoning Portland Web scene, our friends over at Webtrends have come back with a vengeance. They were quintessential to the success of Open Source Bridge, from sponsoring the event to hosting volunteer meetings to co-hosting Portland Lunch 2.0 to providing an adult beverage friendly venue for the after party. They’ve become a gracious host for events like CloudCamp PDX and WordCamp Portland. And, of course, they hired Justin Kistner, founder of Beer and Blog.
Given all they do, it’s really nice to get to share some of their good news here. And now, I’ll do that. Since they just signed a deal that has them working with Radian6 and Salesforce to incorporate Webtrends analytics for social media monitoring. Read More
