Provide a Real-Time Stream API for SiteCatalyst
Avatar

I would like a real-time streaming API to be made a available for consumption. A streaming API should be able to provide a firehose of filtered analytics data via a continuous open data contection. By it's nature a streaming API is lossy (in that if client does not gather and aggregate the data in their app then that data is not made available via that API again). The API simply streams filtered analytics data that is being collected at that point in time. Datasift.com have a similar technology ...

Make publishing widgets have similar controls to a dashboard reportlets.

It would be nice if we had similar controls for publishing widgets as dashboard reportlets. I would like to control if a widget will show the gaph, details and summary items of a report. This would help build more dashboard like applications using this approach compared to what's possible right now.

Merge Discover and SiteCatalyst into a single Web Application

In this day and age it's perfectly possible to replicate Discover interface in to a web application. It would be great to see Discover functionality sit along side normal SiteCatalyst functionality in a single web interface. Adobe could still offer the products seperately but maybe a standard SiteCatalyst interface and a SiteCatalyst + Discover Interface with the following benefits :-Some advantages features that this would enable :- Ability to include discover reports and data point in standard...

Re: Even More SiteCatalyst Variables

At CBS we are struggling. The main area we hit this issue is managing consistent variables across many sites, apps, video, mobile sites, TV apps. When using a roll-up report suite we need to avoid overlapping variables and as such it's quite easy to start running out of variables. Take for example the new mobile integration it uses around 15 variables so once you start reserving variables and avoiding overlap.

Allow for SAINT to accept classifications for items that do not have traffic yet

I am integreating a number of legacy sites with huge back catalogs of content which needs to be classified. Legacy content is infequently accessed as such it could be weeks / months before some items get a page view. This means I must set a schduled to classify the entire back-catalog picking up new values as we go. This means uploading large multiple files with a huge number of lines which have no effect. I suspect there's a better way to do this. I would like a feature where I could do a singl...

Support simple URL's for specific versions of sitecatalyst
Avatar

tim_williams1

- Adobe Analytics
We use v15 and lot's of users forget to select the correct version. So here are some suggestions. 1) Support something like this for a v15 specific login page https://sc2.omniture.com/login/v15/2) Then allow for the admin to set this on a company wide level. So when new users are created and we send an e-mail to them they get the v15 link not the general http://my.omniture.com link in the welcome e-mail.

Also list vars are not supported in report builder or discover. It's kind of pointless adding a variable if you don't make it a available in all products.

Create multiple page view containers with AND segment defintions

I often find that I need to define a page view container segment with a number of rules inside the segment set where any rule can match. However I often then find I would like to have a additional AND page view container. But this is not possible I would like it to be possible. Example Page View Container 1- Any of the following 5 author ID's AND Page View Container 2- Where Country GEO = UK However this is not possible. I can start with a visit container but that brings back data I do not want ...

Connected TV's are becoming more common where possible Omniture should identify connected TV's and include them in all the mobile device reports including device type reports. Also consider renaming mobile reports to device reports or something similar.

Hightlight rows on tables when mouse over in admin UI

When hovering over a row in a table that line should highlight so it makes it easy for users to see the whole row of data. This currently works well in the report interface but is not available on all admin UI elements such as dashboard manager, user administration etcSee the table example on this link :- http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/base-css.html#tables

Understanding a site from a hierarchal view is essential to any analytics implementation however SiteCatalyst falls a little short in what can be offered outside of the use of classifcation heirarchies. I would like to see s.hier variable ability to pull any calculated metric or sucess event along side the basic metrics available today. I would also like to see the ability to define evar based heirarchies similar to how we can with classifcations heirarchies today but on standard evars to create...

There are a number of common situations where I would like to be able to classify an item with multiple values.

Dramatically improve standard data latency in v15
Avatar

tim_williams1

tim_williams1
- Adobe Analytics
60mins of latency is too long please decrease the latency on data in v15 I think somewhere between 15mins to 10 mins would be ideal. Not decreasing latency is an important issue even if you get round to providing real-time functionality unless you move all data points to a near real-time update frequency.

In this day and age free API access is becoming increasingly common for all enterprise and SMB level products. This is particularly common in the SAAS world.
