Get real-time data about your website usage that you can analyze and act upon. You can access the Analysis Center with a website tree called the Object Explorer, which maps out the entire content and structure of your website. You can click on any part of the website tree to view a real-time analysis of that part of your website. The Analysis Center’s search box helps you to find any specific sub-site, page or document you want to analyze. You can also create and save new analysis reports based on either the widgets of your choice or using existing analysis templates. In the Analysis Center, a user assigned with an Analyst role can view real time data for any monitored page. The query results in Analysis Center are not for distribution purposes and are not saved in a historical format.
