Nordstrom uses InfluxDB to support their company-wide operational metrics needs. What did Nordstrom find compelling about InfluxDB? It was fast, used less space and has rich retention policy support. By leveraging the entire TICK-stack (Telegraf, InfluxDB, Chronograf and Kapacitor), it gave Nordstrom a full life cycle of data management capabilities for their time-series data.
Nordstrom, Inc. is a leading fashion specialty retailer offering compelling clothing, shoes and accessories for men, women and children. Since 1901, they have been committed to providing their customers with the best possible serviceand to improving it every day.
Something Digital built a module that integrates Magento, a leading e-commerce platform with InfluxDB. Out of the box, the module pushes a few key measurements about a Magento application's operation such as cron execution, page cache hit rate and product inventory levels. It can easily be extended to store any data that is specifically relevant to the particular Magento store it is implemented on. Something Digital also runs Kapacitor alongside InfluxDB for alerting and Grafana for visualization.
Something Digital is an interactive agency specializing in e-commerce, website design, custom software development, digital marketing, and user experience. By taking the time to assess your unique needs, we are able to offer strategic, creative solutions that help your business succeed.
InfluxDB allowed FireFlies.ai to quickly prototype and reliably store their production data in a time-series database. They deal with a high volume of messages so it was critical to make sure everything was being saved. Querying the data was also easy and fast for them once we started chunking. InfluxDB has proved to be a great product that has been invaluable to FireFlies.ai success.
FireFlies.ai believes relationships are an important part of your life and lead to happiness and success. They provide a cloud based AI which helps keep track of your contacts in email, giving you the information you need at the right time. You can talk to the bot through email (Gmail or Outlook), Facebook Messenger, and Slack. It will provide dynamic reminders, contextual insights, analytics, and time tracker as features.
