Develop the explainability in Independent Variables for Time-series data

At Cisco, GBS and SW group we are doing a PoC with Watson Open Scale on ICPD on IBM Cloud. Business Idea behind this is, this system can capture the Sudden Sales Spike, and once we catch it, we can prepare it and forecast. LTSM model should be able to forecast in advance for future possible Sudden Spikes when it will happen. This solution will create explanations for Cisco 70k SKUs. Which is a big revenue stream for IBM.
