Some of the mobile optimization solutions that Omniture's customers are using include:
With the rapid proliferation of power mobile devices, more consumers are going mobile for their online experience. Mobile devices come in many variations of keyboards, screen sizes, browsing, and video capabilities. The variation in device capabilities and irregular adoption of mobile industry standards presents online marketers and developers with unique challenges in tailoring the mobile experience to their customers. Without specific knowledge of the mobile devices that are accessing their site, online marketers are limited in their ability to create a compelling user experience for an audience on the go.
The mobile analytics features in SiteCatalyst enable online marketers to identify the profile of mobile devices to better optimize their content development strategy. With the mobile analytics capability of SiteCatalyst, marketers and developers can better answer questions such as:
* Who is visiting my site using a mobile device?
* What mobile devices are my customers using to access my site?
* How can I better tailor the mobile experience for these particular devices?
* Are there problems with my site for customers using certain devices?
* Where are my mobile customers when they are accessing my site remotely?
* What carriers are my customers using when they remotely access my site?
