Microsoft Gatineau Analytics Ready for Beta
According to a company official, Microsoft will launch their new analytics package, Gatineau, later this summer in beta testing. The test will be limited and all signs point to testing by invite only.
Microsoft's Ian Thomas, on his blog, states that some of the features include ability to segment data by age and gender buckets. He was also quick to point out that information about users is obtained anonymously and without the use of personally identifiable information such as email addresses or names. Other than that, there is little information at this time.
You can apply to beta test Gatineau by sending an email to Microsoft.
