Cisco: IoE - Using Elasticsearch to Unlock an Analytical Goldmine

The true value of IoE starts to be realized not when you connect things, but when you are best able to use the data generated by those things. Not only is the final impact of a device event important, but the ability to analyze the cascading effects felt throughout the device ecosystem and different layers of the business is paramount. The Cisco Analytics Incubation Center developed a real time, data-driven, and rules-based framework to identify these cause-effect relationships. This talk will showcase how Elasticsearch has helped make it easy to utilize IoE data in real-time, and how critical it is to do so given the flood of IoE device data expected in the future.
