With Google Analytics 4 (GA4) getting decidedly mixed reviews (see here, here, here and here for details), it may be time to consider using a different program. For startups and small companies, we’ve already put together a list of 15 low-cost alternatives to GA4. Today we are looking at digital analytics systems for large businesses.
This is an alphabetical list of well-known web analytics systems with enterprise-level capabilities. Unless otherwise noted, you must contact the company for enterprise pricing.

It is designed and priced for very large organizations.
- Amplitude is a product analytics platform that maps user data across devices, platforms and channels using various identifiers like phone numbers, emails and internal CRM IDs to a single profile of one user.
