Product updates: June, 2020

June has been an exciting month in Cognite with several large improvements and quality-of-life enhancements.

New and improved Cognite Data Source for Grafana

Grafana is a flexible and powerful dashboarding tool, where anyone can easily create any desired dashboard for real-time data.

We’re launching a new Cognite Data Source for Grafana that runs on our API v1, so that you can take advantage of all the latest product features in your dashboards. Read more about the latest changes in our blog post or jump straight to the documentation to learn how to create awesome dashboards on Fusion.

Synthetic time series

As a developer, you know that end users typically care about combinations of different time series. We’re now releasing synthetic time series, so that you can let Cognite Data Fusion handle some of the time series wrangling for you and easily combine time series data, constants, and operators to produce the data that you need. Learn more in our documentation.

Explore data using domain terms

We've made it even easier for data consumers to work with data, by letting you explore data using your familiar domain language. IT and data engineers provide this improved experience for data consumers by defining, managing, and applying labels to data. Learn more in our blog post.

Additional quality-of-life enhancements

Check which types and subtypes of events are available, and how many events you have of each type, in a simple API call. See our event aggregation section in the API docs.

Data sets available in Cognite Console

Data sets let you document and track data lineage, ensure data integrity, and allow 3rd parties to write their insights securely back to your Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) project.

Data sets group and track data by its source. For example, a data set can contain all work orders originating from SAP, or the output data from a 3rd party partner's machine learning model. Typically, organizations have one data set for each of its data ingestion pipelines in CDF.

To get started with data sets:

  1. Check out our in-depth article to learn more.
  2. Navigate to the Cognite Console, select Data sets in the sidebar and follow the steps in our guide to create your first data set.

Cognite's Power BI Connector certified by Microsoft

We're excited to announce that Microsoft has certified the Cognite Power BI Connector and that the connector is now publicly available. The Cognite Power BI Connector enables data consumers to easily read, analyze, and present data from Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) in compelling visualizations in both Power BI Desktop and the Power BI service.

You can find the connector in the Other category of the Get Data dialog in Power BI. Learn more in our in-depth article.

New upcoming transformation capabilities

We're continuing our work to improve the asset hierarchy functionality in SQL Transformations. You will soon be able to ingest multiple asset hierarchies at the same time and also ingest asset sub-trees to any level of the hierarchy. The asset hierarchies and sub-trees will merge perfectly with your existing or newly built asset hierarchy.

To give you a more precise and manageable overview of your jobs, we are also updating the UI with additional details about each job: status, time of schedule, last run, duration, and the option to resume or stop a schedule.

Coming soon - next level data sets!

Many of you love the current data sets feature in the Cognite Console that lets you manually document metadata for your data sources. Now, we are taking data sets to the next level and making data sets a full-stack integrated solution.

You will be able to explore data by source, document and track data lineage, ensure data integrity, and allow 3rd parties to securely write back their insights to your Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) project.

Data sets group and track data by its source. For example, a data set can contain all work orders originating from SAP.
