Congratulations to Nedstat and comScore!
This summer’s web analytics acquisition season has heated up to the point where when my phone rings and it’s John (who wakes up hours earlier) saying “comScore has acquired Nedstat” my response is “of course they have!” Not to say this isn’t an exciting acquisition, but wow the vendor landscape has changed a bunch this year …
John spent the morning on the phone with our friend Jodi McDermott and comScore’s CEO Dr. Magid Abraham talking about the decision for comScore to get more deeply into client-side measurement technology and he promises to have a more comprehensive post up in a day or two. I only wanted to weigh in and say “congratulations” to the entire team at Nedstat!
I have been lucky enough to have worked with Michael, Fred, Michiel, and Ulrike on a number of occasions and have produced two white papers with them (one on video, the other on mobile) with a third coming out in a few weeks. The management team and everyone I have interacted with at Nedstat are wonderful people and they will definitely add great value and expertise to the comScore family.
Again, watch for more detail and analysis from John in the coming days and congratulations to the comScore and Nedstat families from all of us here at Analytics Demystified.
