eBay Classifieds Group and a Scalable, Flexible Search Platform to Build On



Peter Maas


Peter Maas, Director of Data and Architecture at eBay, talks about how they are rethinking their core: connecting buyers and sellers. The need for a scalable, flexible search platform to build on emerged quickly, and Elasticsearch was the natural pick. Furthermore eBay is looking into unlocking their (big) data through the use of Elasticsearch next to powering their core experiences. The first experiments strengthened their belief that they made the right strategic decision.
