This group is for anyone interested in open source search, logging, analytics & data visualization. We primarily focus on these open source projects — Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, and Beats — but we welcome talks on any aspect of data exploration.
The Data Game
Given the data in your environment, think of a question. A question you know that can be answered by the data. How hard is it to get the answer? Often times the level-of-effort to get the answer is prohibitive. Many of us face this scenario every day as we're swimming in data, but not answers. As we push to be more data-driven, lowering the level-of-effort to get answers is critical to our success.
In this session we'll examine a data source and then start asking questions of it. Hypothetical questions at first, but we'll bring in Elastic to turn theory into practice as we ingest the data and leverage Elastic's search & analytics capabilities. We'll explore different options and their tradeoffs during the process. You'll leave feeling confident that you can do the same with your data.
