If there is one thing we at Cognite get a lot of questions on, it’s contextualization. Not so much what is contextualization (luckily we are getting past that phase now), but specifically on two subsequent topics:
- How does your contextualization engine actually work?
- How does contextualization make use case scaling order of magnitude (or two!) more efficient?
In this article, we will address both the above questions. We will also offer an ‘executive summary’ on data contextualization and its role in modern data management towards the end for completeness. Dive in!
