Applix Introduces Linux Website Analyzer

Applix Introduces Linux Website Analyzer

Full OLAP Analytics for E-commerce Effectiveness

Westboro, MA, September 23, 1999 -- Applix, Inc. (NASDAQ:APLX), the leader in Linux application software, announces the free availability of the Beta test version of Applix WebInsightTM.

With WebInsight, customers are able to measure the effectiveness of their Internet and intranet web sites using comprehensive business analytics. WebInsight allows customers to determine what their web visitors do at their site, how long they spend there, and where they come from. The results are available both graphically and in table form. With this information, customers can tailor their websites to provide the best and most complete experience for their user community.

Unique to WebInsight, customers can also perform full ad-hoc analysis of their web usage data using Applix's included multidimensional on line analytical processor (OLAP) engine, iTM1. This OLAP facility enables WebInsight customers to perform multidimensional analysis of web site traffic and visitor interaction data. Customers can determine, for example, how visitors from different countries navigate their web site. They can even gain a perspective on which web pages are most attractive to visitors from specific companies. To provide the richest possible interface, WebInsight displays its information using a full featured spreadsheet.

"Doing business over the web is a new world," according to Jit Saxena, Applix Chairman and CEO. "In addition to static reports on web activity, enterprises today need to be able to 'mine' their web usage data to find what their customers are really interested in. It is these 'mined nuggets' and how a business uses them that separate the externally, customer-focused enterprise from the internally focused enterprise."

WebInsight operates with the Apache web server on Linux systems. Additional operating systems will be supported in future versions. The Beta-test version is now available for free download from

Beta test users are being supported entirely via, where they can download new versions, post questions, report problems, vote on suggestions and collaborate on improvement ideas.

After the free beta test period, the WebInsight product is expected to be available in commercial form in December at prices starting at $695 per user.
