Author: Mark Herring
In this CIO article, InfluxData CMO Mark Herring begins by noting that the information technology industry is rife with tools developed to serve a specific need, and that the new Age of Instrumentation is no exception. Writes Herring: “Anything that can be instrumented for benefit will be instrumented, it’s just a matter of time”. He explains that capturing and working with sensor-generated data requires a tool that is purpose-built for this activity, to address needs that can’t be properly addressed with general purpose tools.
