Code Name Gatineau: Microsoft’s New Free Analytics

Story Confirmed By Microsoft Employee Ian Thomas

It appears that Microsoft Adcenter and Adlabs will soon be entering the world of Free Analytics Tools. Much like the heralded Google Analytics, Microsoft appears to be working on a project of its own, code named Gatineau.

While it does not appear that Windows Live logins are working at this time, you can find a Sign In page. Currently, you are automatically logged out when attempting to get access. There is a page in the interim that comes up…

Little is known about gatineau at this point. It is noted that it is code named Gatineau after the city in Canada where DeepMetrix was based.

If anyone has actually gotten to take a look at it, please let us know!

    There is hope still for Microsoft. With the new live search and this much needed analytics toiols..seems like they’re finally ready to re-capture lost ground.

    It is really interesting to see the competition in web analytics segment. It is good situation for end users. But from strategic prospect Microsoft is just following that Google is doing. Microsoft is not as innovation as Google.
