Insight Advisor analysis types
Insight Advisor provides results using a wide range of analysis types. These analysis types provide best practice visualizations when generating insights.
Different analysis types are used depending on the inputs of the query and the characteristics of your data. The following table describes the analysis types. Not all conditions for each analysis type are listed. The Qlik cognitive engine determines the best analysis type for your query depending on the available data.
