Using these two services, you can collect event data on how customers are interacting with your site, and then instantly find insights in your event analytics using DataHero.

Keen IO creates events that occur within your app and DataHero will then display those events as files that are available for import.

DataHero then categorizes your Keen IO data and analyzes it to find patterns.  Part of the analysis is in categorizing all your data by type, such as date or textual category (like an event label).

DataHero has automatically created some suggested charts based on the patterns in the data.  Without having to lift a finger, you’ve already got a number of visualizations at your disposal.  At this point, you can either start with one of these suggested charts, or click the “create new chart” button to start from scratch.
