Creating an Excel model for use with ThingWorx Analytics Manager
One of the interesting features of ThingWorx Analytics Manager is its ability to run distributed models created in Excel (and more of course). Most people having been tasked with understanding data have built models in Excel and have sometimes built quite complex models (or even applications) with it.
The ability to tie these models to real data coming from various systems connected through ThingWorx and operationalise their execution is a really simple way for people to leverage their existing work and I.P. on a connected analytics journey.
To demonstrate this power and ease of implementation, I created a sample data set with historical data, traffic profile, and a simple anomaly detection model to execute with Analytics Manager. (files are attached)
