In this webinar, Reinhard Nowak, CEO of LineMetrics, shares how they built an end-to-end IoT platform to help businesses gain insights from their products and customers.
• Reinhard Nowak: CEO, LineMetrics Reinhard Nowak 00:00.407 Perfect. Thanks for the invitation. Reinhard Nowak 02:25.300 So maybe just one thing about what was the reason why we started the whole thing-there is always a pattern. Reinhard Nowak 04:43.212 And yeah, that's exactly what we were trying to solve. Reinhard Nowak 05:57.947 So what's LineMetrics? Reinhard Nowak 07:40.601 And so we tried to process as many data at the distributed hardware, and send data via GSM, as little data as possible via GSM. Reinhard Nowak 10:39.744 So that's the complete stack we built. Reinhard Nowak 12:04.354 And so there are a lot of different use cases, you can read that. Reinhard Nowak 13:22.943 As I said, it's really easy to integrate and use. Reinhard Nowak 14:38.977 So I will go at that really quickly just to give you a short impression. That's the LineMetrics box. Reinhard Nowak 16:25.839 I just saw and it's like they're still-the limitation for the European Union, of course, it's not true anymore. Reinhard Nowak 17:49.911 At the beginning, I told you that we have a strong focus at assets and that's a really, really important thing. That's the following slides where I talk about the architecture. Reinhard Nowak 20:13.042 So maybe just a quick view of how we display the data, and that's something you don't have to program. Reinhard Nowak 22:35.603 So maybe a little bit about the architecture. Reinhard Nowak 25:24.157 So that's something we learned pretty earlier. Reinhard Nowak 27:40.275 And so the most interesting thing we learned in this phase is that it doesn't make sense to build a data service at your own, if you think about Cassandra. Reinhard Nowak 30:26.572 So that's where we ended up and now the architecture which is perfect, which is highly stable, which is highly extendable, where we can provide a product which is open and we will go in that direction of a platform. Reinhard Nowak 32:33.770 So this was a really important step. Reinhard Nowak 35:02.549 So maybe that's a short overview of our architecture. Reinhard Nowak 37:01.924 So what's next? And then I'm done. What's next? As I told you, we will improve analytics, on the one hand, we will allow the customer to explore historical data, and it will be an iterative mode where we show the customer chartings and he just drag and drops another chart. Reinhard Nowak 39:54.863 So this was an overview about LineMetrics, what we do, how we do things, and from a technology perspective, how we ended up in this tech we are using today. So I would love to answer some questions. I will switch back to WebEx on the second screen, so I guess you won't see my screen anymore. Let's try that. Chris Churilo 40:24.249 Reinhard, that was really a great presentation and a very thorough overview- Reinhard Nowak 40:28.848 Thank you. Reinhard Nowak 41:02.266 Thank you. It's great feedback. Reinhard Nowak 44:53.648 Okay. Reinhard Nowak 48:02.587 So this customer binding is the second really important thing. But if you do have some questions, feel free to email me your questions so I can make sure that Reinhard gets them because I know he'd love to be able to share a little bit more with all of our attendees, how they built out their solution. Reinhard Nowak 51:44.241 Perfect. Reinhard Nowak 51:47.886 There's a question, and maybe I should treat it before. Reinhard Nowak 53:44.069 And the second thing was that-what's really interesting for us is that, next to InfluxDB, we always wanted to use the power of Kapacitor as well. Reinhard Nowak 55:48.252 And so there are different-you have to handle these kinds of time series a little different. Reinhard Nowak 58:47.357 No, me neither. Me neither. Reinhard, I really appreciate your time today. I feel like you did such a thorough job there. I wouldn't expect to have a lot of questions because I feel there was so much detail in here [laughter]. But as I mentioned earlier, if anyone does have any questions and a follow-up, just feel free to shoot me an email. Reinhard Nowak 59:22.233 Yeah. Chris Churilo 59:22.352 It's chris.churilo@influxdb.com and I'd be happy to forward that off to Reinhard, and I'm sure he'd be happy to answer any of your questions. Reinhard Nowak 59:33.890 Absolutely. Perfect. So thank you so much Reinhard. Reinhard Nowak 60:09.925 Thank you. Reinhard Nowak 60:13.848 I will. Thank you [laughter]. Reinhard Nowak 60:16.113 Thank you. Bye-bye.
