Sensor Data Brings New Applications Across Industries

IT Challenges of Sensor Data Applications

  • Sensors output data repeatedly over specified time intervals – Data system must be able to receive and process data at extremely high input velocities
  • Data output is time-sequenced resulting in a different structure – Data system must be able to store large volumes of data in a scalable fashion and allow near real-time access to it
  • Data naturally includes geospatial information – Data system must be able to efficiently store, correlate, and analyze data with repect to time and location
  • There is a higher need to deal with communication failure – Data system must be extremely reliable and continue to operate in case of hardware failures
  • Queries may need to access sensor data along with relational data – Data system must provide near real-time analysis of the collected data

Time Series Data is BIG DATA - Large amounts of data cause problems in 2 areas:

It’s expensive and difficult to manage

  • Massive storage space required
  • Sophisticated partitioning schemes needed
  • Frequent reorganization leads to downtime

Poor query/analytic performance affects quality of service

  • Compliance reports must be completed before the end of each day
  • Customer portal queries must be handled in a timely manner
  • Customer billing must be completed each day

Accessing TimeSeries Data with Informix

  • Access through standard tabular view – Makes TimeSeries look like a standard relational table
  • SQL Interface – 100+ functions
  • Extensive library of API functions – Write your own functions in Stored Procedure Language (SPL), “C”, Java
