Talk: “Introduction to Time-Series” by David McKey
Time-Series has been the fastest growing database category, rated, by DBEngines, for over 2 years; yet, less than 15% store their time-series data in a time-series database. Do you?
One could, accurately, say that time-series data is as old as the universe; but it wasn’t until the mid-19th century that the first article was published on the concept: A Comparison of the Fluctuations in the Price of Wheat and in the Cotton and Silk Imports into Great Britain by J. H. Poynting (March 1884).
Time-Series data is so natural and common that you actually consume, evaluate, and utilise it everyday; when you’re:
- Paying for your morning coffee
- Sighing at the “Delayed” notice on your commute
- Hugging your coffee mug as you process your email inbox
In this talk we will look at the different types of time-series data and how to use that to drive observations, understanding, and automation.
“All data becomes an order of magnitude more interesting on the time dimension” — Let's see why.
