Opening Keynote - IBM

IBM discusses the Bluemix platform and how it enables logging with the Elastic Stack. Take your interconnected, cloud-hosted micro services and bring them together quickly and simply so you spend less time instrumenting your app for logging applications and more time enhancing it. The Bluemix platform uses multitenant systems to offer a large scale, personalized Elastic Stack logging experience.
