• 16h00-16h45: Elastic Search by Teboho Mareas

Elasticsearch is a real-time distributed search and analytics engine. It allows you to explore your data at a speed and at a scale never before possible. It is used for full-text search, structured search, analytics, and all three in combination. In this talk we'll explore these aspects of Elasticsearch in a practical demo, demonstrating just how quickly one can realise value out of unstructured, noisy, raw data - in particular, system log data. The demo will be based on the ELK stack (Elasticsearch-Logstash-Kibana) covering the sourcing of data, structuring and filtering, and finally, visualisation. We'll also compare Elasticsearch as a data store to traditional relational databases and discuss what makes Elasticsearch good at types of problems it provides a solution to.

• 17h15-18h00: Technology Innovation by Ebrahim Jogee & Rogerio Ferreira

Join us as we explore the angle around why technology and innovation need to work together from a business perspective. We also will uncover some case studies on what is perceived as technology innovation being largely driven by the very nature for business innovation. We will also give an overview of what has worked and not worked when leading with pure technology innovation.
