The trend towards multiple platforms plays into the growth seen by leading MarTech vendors including Google and Adobe for analytics.

“Analytics platforms have become a duopoly, with Adobe and Google serving all but a few organizations. The graph below illustrates the market trends in the top 500 online retailers across the past three years. Adobe’s market share has been pretty consistent, aside from a small decrease in 2016, while Google Analytics has made some gains on its already large market share. Up against these two platforms, other players are becoming extinct,” notes the report.
