Shawn Hooton, Principal Solution Architect, Elastic presents "Hiding in Plain Sight: How SEARCH is the engine that powers answers."
IT environments are growing ever more complex and IT talent is asked to do more and more. Company acquisitions, microservice architectures, cloud, and mobile generate lots of data. These environments demand the need for answers when you need it. Why is my service slow? How many people does this application outage affect? How many people are using this version of my mobile application? How can I automate collection of data? We will talk about why SEARCH is vital to meet the needs of the modern DevOps (and more) teams.
Shawn loves technology! He started his career debugging vibration analysis software for a small engineering company. Soon after, Shawn found himself working with Unix and Linux system automation and over the next several years took on various roles, including Lead Developer, System Architect, and Enterprise Architect before becoming an independent consultant. After getting a call from Oracle Shawn decided to change direction and work for a software vendor. During the last 10 years he has advised many customers in the areas of software development, integration, cloud technologies, and data management for companies such as Oracle, Pivotal, Hortonworks, and Elastic. When Shawn isn’t visiting with customers he works out of his home in Columbus, OH with his daughter, son, and fiancé. In his free time he enjoys woodworking and rebuilding cars.
