In brief: Many things.

The echocardiogram or heart ultrasound, gives an accurate picture of the heart's anatomy.
An ekg demonstrates the cardiac rhythm. A holter moniters the cardiac rhythm over time- say 12 or 24 hours. These measure different aspects of heart function and are helpful in assessing heart function thoroughly.
