Time Series Features in SQL Server 2022

Kendal Van Dyke walks us through a few new bits of T-SQL in SQL Server 2022:

Time series data is often used for historical comparisons, anomaly detection and alerting, predictive analysis, and reporting, where time is a meaningful axis for viewing or analyzing data.

Time series capabilities in SQL Server were introduced in Azure SQL Edge, Microsoft’s version of SQL Server for the Internet of Things (IoT) which combines capabilities such as data streaming and time series with built-in machine learning and graph features.

I am happy to see that these operators and functions made the leap from Azure SQL Edge and am hopeful that we’ll see a bit more of what makes databases like influxdb so useful for time series make their way in as well.
