What is the difference between Google Analytics and Google Analytics 360?
Google Analytics 360 increases data sampling thresholds for ad-hoc analysis compared to the standard version of Google Analytics and also provides the option to export unsampled data, which the standard version does not. Data sampling limits analysis to a subset of data and then draws conclusions about the whole.
