According to the Google Analytics blog, the algorithmic-driven Analytics Intelligence is still in its preliminary phase, but it’s designed to take some of the hassle out of scanning reports for that one morsel of actionable data. The intelligence engine will automatically alert you to significant changes in metric and dimension patterns over daily, weekly and monthly time periods. For example, Analytics Intelligence will alert users to volume spikes and fluctuations in bounce rates.
Several videos demonstrating the new services are available on the Google Analytics blog. In addition, Google also launched the Website Optimizer Experiment Management API, which allows for the creation and management of experiments outside of the Website Optimizer interface. In other words, users can test out optimization without disrupting a website’s precious code.
