The framework is designed to allow developers to integrate Web analytics into Silverlight applications. It will be able to track out-of-browser and offline applications, as well as support multiple analytics services from various third-party vendors, according to information on Microsoft’s Mix Web site. Scherotter provided a few more details about the Silverlight Analytics Framework on his blog last week.

Here are the high-level goals of the framework:

  • Support out-of-browser scenarios
  • Support offline scenarios
  • Support multiple analytics services simultaneously without impacting performance
  • Support designers in Microsoft Expression Blend to instrument applications without coding
  • Support A/B Testing
  • Support SketchFlow Prototypes
  • Support logging of video experiences with the Microsoft Silverlight Media Framework

    The new framework will support designers using Microsoft’s Expression Blend tool to build applications without coding, Scherotter said. It also will work with Microsoft’s SketchFlow tool and the Silverlight Media Framework.

    Microsoft plans to release for download via its Codeplex site a free, open-source analytics framework for Silverlight this week.
