Google announced today the release of the “Google Analytics 360 Suite”.
The Suite includes the following products:
– Analytics 360 (Google Analytics Premium): Positioned as a method to analyzing your first-party website data and enabling digital-only attribution.
– Attribution 360 (Adometry): For large organizations with big offline budgets.
– Optimize 360: Site testing and personalization.
– Audience 360 (NEW): A demand-side platform (DMP) which will work with first-party Google data and other third-party platform data.
– Studio 360 (NEW): Visualization, to share data with your organization.
– Tag Manager 360 (Google Analytics Premium): Data collection.
If you are a GA Premium customer, think of Analytics360 as simply a re-branding. You will not see any differences in your account for the time being. No switches are being flipped for existing Delve customers.
The rollout of the complete Suite will take place over the next 12 months. Bottom line is the new tools that come with Suite, such as the Audience Center, will help you go from insight to impact, faster.
Google Analytics Standard and Google Tag Manager will continue to be free and will keep their names as well.”
