    There are tons of them. Just google 'google analytics vs' and let autofill make suggestions. You'll see tons. I don't have enough experience with others out there to make a suggestion.

    I also use wappalzer extension for chrome to see what technologies other websites are using. I see many big sites using 2 or 3 companies for web analytics. There are also several out there that are just for mobile based analytics.

    I've seen a lot of companies use kissmetrics.

    I used piwik and really liked it until I needed user data such as age and gender of the visitors. Piwik does not provide that but it otherwise it's a cool tool.

    For me, it depends how many websites you have. If it's just a few, Clicky is the best option I've found. If it's a lot, and you don't want to deal with the hassle of having multiple dashboards, I recommend Piwik.
