What Is Time Series Data and Why Should You Care?

Time series data measures how a system, process or behavior changes over time and how events increase in value, when time is added as a primary axis.

The Time Series Data Virtual Summit is focused on the impact of time series data and how time series data can be used to help you build and optimize your solutions for real-time visibility into stacks, sensors and systems.

Join Chris Churilo, Frederick Van Leeckwyck, Jacob Lisi, Jason Sewell, Steve Moreton and variety of developers and open source project members to learn more about time series data.

Time Series Data Virtual Summit features a virtual environment with a conference lobby, presentation theater and Q&A. You can truly experience the conference from the comfort of your desk. Register now to attend live on June 6. Registration is FREE, but space is limited. Reserve your spot now!

10:10 - 10:50am - What is Time Series - Chris Churilo, InfluxData

What is Time Series
Chris Churilo, Director of Product Marketing, InfluxData

In this presentation, we will define what time series data is (and isn’t), how the problem domain time-series differs from more traditional data workloads like full-text search, and examine how InfluxData is differentiated from other proposed solutions.

10:55 - 11:20am - Transitioning from Your MySQL System to a Time Series Database - Jason Sewell & Tony Gaskell, Sudokrew

Transitioning from Your MySQL System to a Time Series Database
Jason Sewell, Co-Founder & Business Development at Sudokrew
Tony Gaskell, Full Stack Developer, Sudokrew

We are always looking for ways to make our solutions work better and smarter. We accomplish this by tracking the performance of each of the components underlying our solution. All this critical performance data has a timestamp and a value — also known as time series data. If this important time-stamped data is at the heart of initiatives to keep things performant, why are we entrusting this data to an ordinary relational database?

In this webinar, Jason Sewell, Co-Founder & Business Development at Sudokrew, and Tony Gaskell, Full Stack Developer at Sudokrew will present why you should use a time series database (TSDB) for your important time series data and not one of the traditional datastores you may have used in the past, They will discuss how time series databases are built with specific workloads and requirements in mind, including the ability to ingest millions of data points per second; to perform real-time queries across these large data sets in a non-blocking manner; to downsample and evict high-precision low-value data; to optimize data storage to reduce storage costs; and to perform complex time-bound queries to extract meaningful insight from the data. These are all capabilities that you would have to build yourself when using a traditional database.

11:25 - 11:50am - Using Time Series Data for your Opentracing Projects - Chris Goller & Jacob Marble, InfluxData

Using Time Series Data for your Opentracing Projects
Chris Goller, Architect, InfluxData
Jacob Marble, Software Engineer, InfluxData

OpenTracing is starting to gain traction with many applications but what is the right approach to implementing OpenTracing within your app? Chris Goller and Jacob Marble will discuss how you can best tackle the use of this technology to find issues that can be solved to keep your applications performant.

1:05 - 1:30pm - How to use Time Series Data to Measure Anything - Thom Crowe & Daniella Pontes, InfluxData

How to use Time Series Data to Measure Anything
Thom Crowe, Community Manager, InfluxData
Daniella Pontes, Senior Manager Product Marketing, InfluxData

In this presentation, Thom Crowe, Community Manager, and Daniella Pontes, Senior Marketing Product Manager at InfluxData, will detail how to use time-series data to measure everything and anything that you are responsible for—from your infrastructure, your apps, and physical things like sensors. Time series data helps you understand the change over time which is fundamental to making things perform optimally.

1:35 - 2:00pm - The Many Uses of Ruby Modules and Time Series - Sonia Gupta, InfluxData

The Many Uses of Ruby Modules and Time Series
Sonia Gupta, Developer Advocate, InfluxData

In this presentation you will learn about Ruby modules and how you can implement them in your code. Together we’ll explore how Modules can make your code cleaner and easier to understand. After this presentation you will have a better understanding of how Modules can help you to organize classes and methods, and how they can be used as mixins.

1:35 - 2:00pm - When Holt-Winters is Better than Machine Learning for Time Series Data - Anais Dotis-Georgiou, InfluxData

When Holt-Winters is Better than Machine Learning for Time Series Data
Anais Dotis-Georgiou, Developer Advocate, InfluxData

Machine Learning is all the rage, but when does it make sense to use it for forecasting? How do statistical forecasting methods compare? In this presentation, Developer Advocate Anais Dotis-Georgiou will show you how the Holt-Winters forecasting algorithm works. Then we’ll use the HOLT_WINTERS() function with InfluxData to make our own time series forecast.

2:15 - 2:40pm - Unlocking the Value of Manufacturing Data; Using Time Series Data to Improve Operations - Erik Laubacher, Sightline

Unlocking the Value of Manufacturing Data; Using Time Series Data to Improve Operations
Erik Laubacher, VP of IIoT, Sightline

This presentation is designed to provide an overview of why data is valuable and what is stopping its potential from being fully realized. The goal of this presentation is to provide attendees with both an improved understanding of the value of their data and how they can tap it to go back to their workplaces and make actual changes that impact the bottom line.

2:45 - 3:10pm - Optimization of Wind Turbine Operations with Time Series Data - Frederick Van Leeckwyck, Factry.io

Optimization of Wind Turbine Operations with Time Series Data
Frederick Van Leeckwyck, Co-Founder and the Business Development Manager, Factry

Wind turbine operators need to generate as much electricity as possible given variable weather conditions while staying within regulatory boundaries. In this session, we demonstrate the value of a time series database by collecting data from industrial control systems, adding further context with additional data and (interpreting the result visually, see below) using this as a basis for optimization.

2:45 - 3:10pm - Democratizing Metrics with Grafana - Jacob Lisi, Grafana

Democratizing Metrics with Grafana
Jacob Lisi, Software Engineer, Grafana

Steve Moreton, Global Head of Product Management, CJC Ltd

Steve Moreton, Global Head of Product Management at CJC, will showcase how they built a big data visualization platform used in the capital markets for ITOA (IT Operations Analytics). MosaicOA uses InfluxDB to store metrics from hundreds of specialist servers, networking and middleware systems, with some firms doing 1 million database writes per minute. The data (CPU, memory, network and application data) is queried and visualized for clients to address a variety of use cases. Steve will detail the many aspects of building such a platform, implementing data sorting techniques such as principle component analysis and designing killer visualizations for the demanding capital markets IT crowd.
