The landscape of analytics is changing rapidly. Much of online user analytics, however, is based on collection of various user analytics numbers. Understanding these numbers, and then relating them to higher numerical analysis for the evaluation of key performance indicators (KPIs) can be quite challenging, especially with large volumes of data.

Additionally, they often do little to reduce the complexity of numerical data in a manner that allows ease of use in decision making and communication. Dealing with numbers poses cognitive challenges for individuals who often do cannot recall many numbers at a time. Here, we explore the concept of automatic analytics by demonstrating use case examples and discussion on the current state and future of automated insights.
