Insights play a crucial role in business by helping users gain a deeper and more accurate understanding of their operations. They assist data analysts and decision-makers in interpreting critical aspects of their business and offer valuable recommendations for improvement.

One of the most powerful aspects of insights is their ability to simplify the presentation of complex data to the end user. Instead of requiring data analysts to navigate through vast datasets and conduct intricate analyses, Insight-based dashboard panels can be used to present actionable information clearly and straightforwardly. This simplification is incredibly valuable as it allows users at various levels of expertise to make informed decisions. For example, in traditional visualizations, isolating the root cause of transaction failures can be challenging. With insights, correlations are easily established, allowing for a customized, easily comprehensible view of the root cause and textual analysis. This streamlined approach empowers users of all expertise levels to make informed decisions.
