Why are facts gathered in puppet and ansible

There are facts gathered while using Ansible and Puppet(I have used only these two tools). I don't understand the point of gathering these facts. Where are these going to be used?

The facts gathered by these tools are actually very useful and used in many situations. For example,

  • You can create a web server configuration template and automatically fill in the appropriate IP address for a particular virtual host
  • You can also determine a lot about your system like that your server's distribution is ubuntu so you should run apache2 instead of httpd
