Data is readily available, and how your business uses the information at its disposal can impact your immediate and long-term success. At Bluefin Technology Partners, we want to help companies leverage data and analytics, so they can identify inefficiencies, improve their everyday operating processes and procedures, and find ways to meet customer expectations now and in the future. 

Recently, we helped a business leverage Amazon Timestream to manage massive data volumes. With our support, the business can use Timestream to quickly retrieve recent and historical data, perform in-depth data analysis, and identify trends and patterns in its data in near-real-time. 

What Is Amazon Timestream?

Timestream is a serverless time series database service for Internet of Things (IoT) and operational applications. It lets users store and analyze data from trillions of events per day, up to 1,000 times faster and at a fraction of the cost of relational databases.

With Timestream, users can access and analyze recent and historical data at the same time. Timestream keeps recent data remains in memory and moves historical data is moved to a cost-optimized storage tier based on user-defined policies. It also ensures that users do not have to specify explicitly in a query whether the data resides in the in-memory or cost-optimized tier.

Along with providing seamless data accessibility, Timestream offers built-in time series analytics functions, so users can quickly identify and assess data trends and patterns. Plus, Timestream automatically scales up or down to adjust capacity and performance, thereby eliminating the need for underlying infrastructure.

Amazon Timestream Applications

Timestream helps businesses quickly analyze time series data generated by IoT applications. So, a smart home device manufacturer can use Timestream to collect motion or temperature data from device sensors and notify consumers to do things like turn down the heat to save energy.

Businesses can use Timestream to easily store and analyze data at scale, too. For instance, an e-commerce business can leverage Timestream to store and process incoming and outgoing web traffic across its applications. The business can then analyze this data and gain insights into path-to-purchase, shopping cart abandonment rate, and other relevant metrics.

How Can Your Business Use Amazon Timestream?

Timestream can benefit businesses looking to maximize the value of their data. The service can help companies manage recent and historical data and evaluate this information separately or in combination with one another. That way, businesses can use Timestream to gain insights into all aspects of their operations and drive continuous improvement.
