  1. Identify revenue trends over a six-month period.
  2. Understand customer purchasing behavior by examining transactions by day of the week and hour.
  3. Analyze the distribution of transactions across different product categories.
  4. Highlight the top-performing products to inform inventory and marketing strategies.
