Unlock the Power of Realtime Data – Singapore

Unlock the Power of Realtime Data
– Discover Data Analytics with the Elastic Stack

As an enterprise, all the data that we are surrounded with each growing day is massive. Operational log messages, social media data, metrics, network packets and more – all this data needs to be stored, analyzed, and made searchable. Existing systems in most organizations are often slow, not scalable or have poor query languages that do not have the power, you and your business need. The Elastic stack was developed in response to this. Used all over the world by the likes of Netflix, Bank ING, TomTom, NASA, and CERN, it can handle massive amounts of structured and unstructured data while still responding to complex queries in near real time.
