Google Analytics have become a powerful tool which is now providing all the details such as Demographics, Where the audience landed and where they left your website. If your website is e-commerce website, you can even see the Sales Funnel where the customer had done the sale or leaving in between. So for General Purposes, Google Analytics is sufficient.
