Products, Support, Commerce, and Relevancy: The Story Behind Search on Dell.com
For the last several years, the team at Dell has been building a globalized, commercial search and analytics platform to measure, manage, and influence multi-tenant search experiences.
In this talk, Rich and Luis will present how Dell.com's search platform was transformed from a high-touch, targeted experience into a single Elasticsearch-powered responsive and multi-lingual experience. They will also present how they’ve been able to use Elasticsearch to collect and analyze user events, such as click tracking and overall user interaction, and use it to influence search results in a more personalized way, as well as improve key business metrics for the e-commerce giant.
