Leveraging Elasticsearch as the foundation of a Digital Experience Analytics Platform

In this session, we will discuss our experiences in creating a highly performant, scalable, and real-time data ingestion and processing analytics platform. We will review our architecture, usage, lessons learned, and recommended best practices working with Elastic technology. CA’s Analytics Platform models a Lambda Architecture with the use of a combination of open source technologies such as Kafka, Elasticsearch, Apache Spark, and HDFS. It was built to ingests large amounts of application trace files, metrics, session navigation details, and other UX data in real time from mobile devices and web applications to capture a holistic view of customer experience to developers and business stake holders.

As a CA Champion he is very active in the CA Communities as well as various public communities. He lives in Idaho and loves the outdoors. 

6.0 is here

To help our awesome community prepare, we will be doing a run through of the major changes that arrived with the Elastic Stack in 6.0.

We have things like rolling-major version upgrades, even more Lucene data structure optimisations, sequence IDs, saying farewell to _types, dashboard modes, automated cluster alerts, Logstash pipelines and a pipeline viewer, Beats integration with kubernetes and a whole raft of new Beats modules.

Adam Quan is a Solutions Architect at Elastic, where he works with customers on architecting distributed solutions using the Elastic Stack. Adam has 20 years of experience with Java application development and application integration technologies.

**We're looking to host regular meetups for the Elastic Detroit user group, if you're interested in helping organize the group or speaking at or hosting a meetup -- reach out to us at meetups@elastic.co**
