Highly granular data are collected and maintained, enabling dynamic segmentation analysis (e.g., device models by carrier), custom reports and daypart analysis. Of particular interest to web analytics experts, the detailed session-level data (not aggregated counts) can be exported for integration with Coremetrics, Omniture, Unica, WebTrends and others. A 1-minute video introduction and a fully functional mobile analytics demo is available.
