Title: In the IoT world, general-purpose databases can’t cut it
Author: Linda Musthaler
Abstract: This Network World article by Linda Musthaler discusses how the need to collect, measure, and act on the constant stream of IoT data, which is time series data, is necessitating a purpose-built Time Series Platform. The article introduces the InfluxData Platform as the solution. The author notes that we live in the “age of instrumentation, where everything that can be measured is being measured so that it can be analyzed and acted upon, preferably in real time or near real time”. She discusses the benefits of becoming a data-driven business as well as the role of Time Series Databases in this transformation.
