Some argue that time is a flat circle. Most analysts, however, can agree that working with time-series data is tough.
Processing large volumes of transactional records, building rolling period aggregations, and implementing fiscal calendars are tedious. Don’t even get me started on time-zone transformations.
Savant Time Series Rollups
The pain is near and dear to our hearts at Savant, which is why we built a tool to greatly simplify time-series operations.

Now, we’re a bit competitive at Savant, so we want to be able to track who pet the most llamas every quarter, as well as who is improving in their llama petting on a rolling month-to-month basis.
The Savant time series tool easily takes our raw data and creates the roll-ups needed for these calculations.
