Baseline

A baseline is an initial collection of data on a given period, used as a basis for measuring or comparing past data with the current data. 

Having a baseline is important to define how you expect your company data to evolve and determine what qualifies as a normal situation as opposed to an unexpected one. Baselines enable you to define a pattern for standard data, thresholds, etc. to see whether your current data matches the pattern or not.
