Microsoft announced today to open up its Gatineau Analytics for international users as well, "Due to the overwhelming demand from customers outside the United States, we have decided to open up the web analytics beta and invite customers from international adCenter markets," expressed the official statement.
Till now the analytics service of Microsoft was available only to the customers in the United States. All the customers from the UK, France and Canada who have expressed an interest in using the program should receive an invitation very soon.
while the news is quite exciting who have been waiting for such a launch, but there is a caveat being offered. Since, Gatineau is still in its early stages of development, the "new and exciting improvements and features" would be unleashed in the coming weeks.
While the use of Project Gatineau is free of charge, you'd need a one-time $5 charge for creation of an adCenter account. In case you already have an adCenter account, you can use the e-mail address associated with that account.
If you haven't yet registered for the beta, you can sign up for it here.
