When people hear the word “search,” they picture a box that you type words into to answer a question. However, even when it looks very simple, search – and making sense of the data that comes back – is much more complex. For businesses, it’s critical to have sophisticated tools that unlock the meaning behind whatever is typed into that box, and present the analysis in a clean, clear way that decision-makers who aren’t data experts can understand. Unraveling the data to get to this clarity is much harder than it might seem.
In this talk, Shay Banon, creator of Elasticsearch, will go over how search has evolved to be the only technology that can serve as the backbone for today’s analytics demands. The presentation will dive into the importance of being able to triangulate unstructured data, such as free-text, with structured data, such as time-stamped events and metadata, with aggregations to help businesses ask the right questions of their data.
This session will also highlight how a versatile, agile search and analytics platform can give shape to data, and uncover the “uncommonly common” trends within, providing businesses real-time insights and setting them up to make the right data-driven decisions.
