Google Analytics is probably the most powerful free web-based analytic tool on the market. Sure, it has a few quirks that you probably wouldn't find in a commercial application. But it gives you a lot of control over how you analyze traffic on your web site. It looks like Microsoft is preparing to launch a new web-based tool that will be at least as powerful.

I do agree with that, as of now I am using Google Analytics only for my websites. But I have a great expectations about the Microsoft's Web Anaytics Tool, as it has promised to be very user friendly, more attractive and informative too.

Other than that Index Tool is the great tool to get your customized reports. It's as simple as Drag and Drop to include the things what you want to know/see in your report. An excellent customization solution for your reporting.
