It’s About Time: The Future is Built on InfluxDB

Learn how time series unlocks the potential of IoT, with InfluxData CEO Evan Kaplan and Director of IoT and Emerging Technologies Brian Gilmore.


Time series data is the future of industry. Why is that? IoT and industrial IoT applications rely on sensor data and sensor data is time series data. Collecting, managing, and utilizing time series data directly correlates to your ability to answer fundamental questions about improving production processes, machine performance, and more, that impact your entire business across the IoT and IIoT spaces.

The InfluxDB platform enables you to harness the power of time series data to build applications that improve operational efficiency, produce better and more consistent outputs, and increase profit margins.
