Unica Announces Financial Results - Web Analytics Industry Seems Recession Proof

Unica announced their financial results for this quarter and it's quite interesting:

" For the quarter ended June 30, 2008, the company reported total revenue of $33.3 million, an increase of 46% compared with the third quarter of fiscal 2007. Perpetual license revenue was $12.1 million, an increase of 71%, subscription revenue was $3.6 million, an increase of 73%, and maintenance and services revenue was $17.5 million, an increase of 28%, each compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2007. For the quarter ended June 30, 2008, maintenance revenue on perpetual licenses was $11.3 million, an increase of 12% from the prior year quarter, and services revenue was $6.2 million, an increase of 74% from the prior year quarter."

I am pretty astonished by these numbers. Unica is certainly a great system, but having such a strong growth backs the guest post on Webanalyticsdemystified, which pretty much tells us that the industry is recession-proof.
