It’s that time again when we showcase a handful of the myriad of Elastic Stack use cases our community has tweeted at #ElasticStories.
Our last post on the topic, Beyond the comfort zone and other #ElasticStories, highlighted how our products pushed developers to think outside their skill sets. Other projects we highlighted, including a business intelligence tool, were designed to better the world and detect cyber intrusions.
As was the case with the previous tweets we showcased, other posts on #ElasticStories present some standout use cases as well. These and other ELK Stack projects inspire us to create even more awesome services, both free and paid.
Rahul Kapoor, the company’s founder, tells us that “Elasticsearch is now at the heart of our software architecture.”
We run advance text search on 65 million patents and run blink-of-an-eye aggregations with huge result sets using @elastic. A patent landscape view of over 2.5 million pharmaceutical industry patents generated within a second! #ElasticStories pic.twitter.com/e5oR7Re8y1

Internet of Things
Then there’s this tweet from @suikast420. He is the tech leader at Amova, a company that builds automated processes and highly-developed systems for transporting and storing products. He notes that he’s going into production with the Elastic APM. The APM deployment, he told us, goes hand in hand with an Internet of Things project he’s developing.
“I am building an Internet of Things platform for the communication devices of our warehouse management system. It should help us to do efficient support, troubleshoot, predictive maintenance, historical data and business reporting,” he says.
A SIEM named "Excalibur"
@IvanNinichuck, a freelance programmer, tweeted that he is using Elastic for, among other things, a SIEM solution:
I wanted to share a project that is my larger vision. I am using Elastic as a siem but actually building a network visualization and application using @ue4. Kibana runs inside ue4 along with Niagara data driven particle effects and shaders. I call it Excalibur. #ElasticStories

Here are screenshots. The spheres are devices each beam is a connection color based on protocol. Simulate here, but it connects to Elastic. Kibana can be accessed too, either 2d UI or even floating in the simulation. Final is the rest api in blueprints. More features to come. pic.twitter.com/lI755GMLTk

The body politic
Election season is nearing in the United States, and the Democratic debates are in full swing, which means the party's next presidential nominee is still undecided. How the candidates are performing on social media is the subject of an Elastic Stack project from @LissenerCo.
Hi @Elastic! We're a #BayArea #startup using #Elasticsearch as part of our #AI stack for informing B2B strategy. Our #Twitter feed shows our demo product, which measures the #SocialMedia performance of Democratic candidates! Let's do an #ElasticStories blog post! 👍 pic.twitter.com/nXFM0ga8Db
