[Proposal] Forecasting Dev Ops Metrics and Financial/Inventory Metrics

The OpenSearch project wants to offer Forecasting as a tool for the community. There are a few different ways that we think that Forecasting would be helpful.

  1. Augmentation for visuals on Dashboards to help developer operations in live troubleshooting
  2. Integrating with alerting to gently let users/systems know when a service may be trending in the wrong direction.
  3. Performing forecasting in the traditional business/finance sense on large amounts of data which includes seasonality (e.g. predicting what revenue may look like or inventory levels based on prior data and trends)
  4. An integration to make it easier to manage Forecasting functionality via the API

Are there use cases and nomenclature in our community that we are missing? We would love your feedback.

Thanks @jdbright for posting here! Hope the community has a lot of input for you
