Google continues its steady stream of updates to its Analytics product by unveiling numerous new features.  This time Google adds features that will be quite useful to enterprise level clients.  Google's intent was to add more flexibility into the reporting so that users have the ability to see data sliced & diced which ever they want.  Below is a summary of the updates:

 

Custom reports enable customers to create their own reports with the metrics they want to compare--organized in the way they want to see them.

Advanced segmentation enables customers to isolate and analyze subsets of their traffic. They can select from predefined custom segments such as "Paid Traffic" and "Visits with Conversions," or create their own segments with a flexible, easy-to-use segment builder.

The application programming interface (API), currently in private beta, enables developers to access all of their Google Analytics data and export it for any type of use. Possible uses include integrating information into other data sources, building custom visualizations or interfaces, and conducting offline analysis.

The updated interface includes several new features in the administrative interface and a cleaner reporting screen that highlights tools for changing the way reports display data. A new navigation, administrators' ability to rename accounts and profiles, and account and profile locator functionality are designed to help increase customers' efficiency and ease of account management.

Motion Charts provide advanced but easy-to-use multi-dimensional analysis. Customers can select their own metrics to compare and then view how those metrics interact over time. By animating data, Motion Charts make discovering insights much easier and more obvious than when viewing data in traditional graphs and columns.

The integration with Google AdSense gives new and existing AdSense publishers access to granular reports that break down AdSense performance by both page and referring site. Armed with this new data about user activity, they can now make more informed decisions on how to improve user experience on their sites and optimize their AdSense units to increase revenue potential.

I think Google Analytics looks even better now!
It's great to see that they keep adding features and improving their product.

Yeh Google Analytics is pretty much the leader in the field

Although tracking clicks on mailto links would be useful for different filters, and some sort of support for offline calls integration with analytics would be useful too.
