Since I’ve started talking about Sliverlight and analytics yesterday I thought this is probably the best opportunity to mention Silverlytics (Silverlight + Analytics).
Built by Location3 Media an interactive marketing company, Silverlytics is a multitenant Windows Azure-based analytics service that uses Microsoft Live Labs Pivot for its data visualization. All of its data is collected from Service Oriented Analytics behaviors in Silverlight applications.
The Windows Azure platform is perfect for web analytics because of its scalability and global reach while Pivot provides a very cool way to slice, dice, and understand the data. Location3 Media is the company behind this and is looking for people who are interested in beta testing the service. Go to the site to learn more and try it out.
The most exciting aspect of this though, is that the Pivot control will be available for Silverlight this summer – so any website could use Pivot in their Silverlight application. To see the potential of Pivot, take a look at Gary Flake’s TED talk from earlier this year.
