OREM, Utah - April 29, 2008 - Omniture, Inc. (NASDAQ:OMTR), a leading provider of online business optimization software, today announced that uLocate, the leading publisher of mobile location-based services via the WHERE™ application and platform, has selected Omniture’s mobile analytics solutions to gain greater insight into consumer usage of mobile applications.
uLocate will deploy Omniture SiteCatalyst and the new Omniture App Measurement solutions for iPhone, BlackBerry and Android devices into its popular WHERE™ application and other branded applications built on the award-winning platform.

The companies also intend to collaborate on additional functionality to improve depth of analytics on mobile applications including the relevance of location and mobile advertising.
“Understanding user behavior is a critical success factor in delivering a best-in-class mobile application. When you are dealing with millions of users, reporting across all operating and distribution systems becomes increasingly complex,” says Dan Gilmartin, VP of Marketing at uLocate. “We needed a solution to meet our internal product and marketing needs as well as those of our advertisers. Incorporating the Omniture App Measurement solutions into the WHERE application and platform is providing us with data that will further our ability to understand our consumers, their behavior, and how they are using WHERE.”

This mobile data, available in SiteCatalyst, provides Omniture customers a real-time view of their mobile marketing efforts and brand interactions. Companies like uLocate can make more informed mobile marketing decisions, such as which devices to support, what new features to add to mobile applications, and which new geographies may represent compelling opportunities. All of these decisions help marketers deliver a more relevant mobile experience and measure and increase marketing ROI. Mobile application data will also be available to other Omniture and partner applications through the Omniture Online Marketing Suite.
