The Silicon Review Magazine this April recognized InfluxData with the “50 Valuable Brands of the Year” distinction, and published an article profiling the company’s work and journey. The article begins by discussing the growing significance of time series data for organizations and industries, and its potential to generate meaningful insights in a context driven by the instrumentation of the physical and virtual worlds. The article then covers InfluxData’s history and founding with InfluxDB creator Paul Dix; its launch and ability to pivot from a SaaS to a platform; and how its community traction helped secure initial investors. The article then discusses InfluxData’s focus on reducing Time to Awesome and why Time Series Databases address two key areas: IoT, and Application and Infrastructure systems. The article concludes with InfluxData’s vision for its future and with a profile of InfluxData CEO Evan Kaplan.
