Druid is the de facto standard for Operational Analytics of event data analysis. It’s unique combination of log search, time-series, search scan, and traditional analytics features provides a fast analytic platform. The components that makes up Druid will be discussed in detail along with its visualization tool called Pivot which applies the “Split-Combine-Apply” strategy for data analysis.

Use cases will also be covered, where it fits and doesn’t fit. Then a demo will quickly follow.
