Web analytics provider Coremetrics, San Mateo, CA, acquired IBM's SurfAid Analytics business, the company said yesterday. In addition, IBM WebSphere and Coremetrics are working together to deliver a multichannel business analytics solution tailored for Web sites running WebSphere Commerce software.
